My high school experience was unforgettable! Everyone, students and teachers, were all really accepting and kind. There were many different cliques but everyone had a friend from each group. The teachers were willing to work with students that needed accommodations. Overall, the staff was all very accepting of each and every students. Very few teachers played favorites. Drama was dealt with and staff was trustworthy. I was in leadership and really enjoyed every moment of it. The events were fun and diverse. The band and art programs were and are amazing! I felt adequately prepared for university.

I really like Century High School, the teachers and staff are always willing to help. They are very communicative an approachable. In my opinion the student government always does a good job getting students involved with activities and events. There are very few problems at the school, I feel comfortable in the environment and there are plenty of wellness options for those who may struggle mentally or physically. Overall, I believe Century is better than most schools, it is a safe and clean place and has good connections with students, great academics and preparation or college.
I like Century High School because the staff members make me feel comfortable and feel confident to return back. I also love how Century High school has no dress code which is a great women's rights and freedom of self-expression movement. I feel secure due to the 360 cameras inserted at almost every part of the school, in fact having ID's is a great way to distinguish who and who does not belong in the school. The food there is made with love, thanks to the lunch staff, they all make sure we get the nutrition of the day and always spread smiles all over the school. From a personal perspective, coming from another district that is in very low standards, I came here to this school feeling like home. It was the best experience ever, students and staff members were even too nice. Overall, this High School is a school I would want my future kids to go to so I know they had a great high school experience.
