What I liked about Century High School was that you have many places to go to when you need help with your homework and the teachers are always glad to help you in some areas that you might not understand. The school wasn't as diverse but everyone would get along. What I also liked about the school is that they really did prepare you for college. For example, they helped me apply to FASFA which made it so much easier because I was new to all of this. Not only that but they made us all register to Santa Ana College just in case we didn't know where to go which was good because the first year was free!
Being here at century has been an exciting experience. I got to learn how to fend for myself even when the counselors told me that I shouldn't. I learned many life lessons here and I went through it all with the staff I felt safe with. If you plan to attend this school know that there is many Hispanics and our Asian population is slowly increasing. If I could attend high school all over again I would choose Century High School!
