I loved the effort put in by teachers and staff to help further the learning of the students there! They would listen to any concerns and helped students to overcome challenges. Overall they were very high in their expectations, and while this does push students to achieve high standards, this could also have driven student away and made them feel incapable. I think this is something that Century High School should think about.

Century High School is very friendly and everyone is very outgoing. We all love to make conversation and find any way possible to include everyone. As well as the environment, our teachers and classes are also great! They push us to our hardest and don't take any excuses. It has prepared me for college in a way where I was not babied and I am ready for the harsh environment that college might have. I am sad to leave this school when I graduate, but I will never forget what I have learned here.
In my little town of Pocatello, out of the three high schools, Century High School is the best. Now, you might say I'm biased, but the most important part of high school is the academics and college preparedness. This is why Century is so amazing. They offer so many Advanced Placement and Dual Credit classes to help you jump start your college career. The administration is also always willing to help with anything college related. Every year we make it onto the best high school list in America. Now that's saying something!
