Century High School is an outstanding school. After transferring from another high school to Century before my sophomore year, I was able to see how truly unique Century is. No matter what your interest might be, there is a place for you! Every school has its drawbacks but I can honestly say Century is constantly working to remove stigmas and encourage diversity in our school. There is a large focus on preparing students for their future with career planning, internships, and dual enrollment programs available for all students interested.

I love the teachers at Century! Almost all the teachers are super nice and supportive and very helpful. Some of the administration are awesome, even the assigned police officer is so nice, but i miss Mr. Booze, the old assistant principal.
Century has a very distinct and unique school environment, with events such as Homecoming, Spirit Week, and other events all being filled with excitement and student participation. Some of what could be improved upon however is the food, which tastes like your average school lunch food, and I wish that there were more opportunities for classes to prepare you for college, whether that be AP or honors classes, etc.
