I loved my experience at Century! All of my teachers were very supportive. Many of them have earned higher degrees that made them even more qualified to teach us and pushed us to learn as much as we could. The teachers always seemed to enjoy teaching and made the topic that they taught interesting. I also liked the opportunities that I had to choose between art classes and music classes. I was able to spend time learning a skill that I really liked from a teacher that had a lot of experience in the area.

My favorite part of my high school experience has been the teachers. Especially in Advanced Placement classes, I have only had exceptional teachers. They made me feel as though they knew their subject inside and out and could explain to me any aspect of it that I was curious about. For me, the teachers were also very understanding and compassionate people who wanted the best for their students. I never had any issues with the facilities as the building is fairly new. There is a rather large selection of clubs and activities and I never found century to be lacking resources. The selection of vegetarian school food could have been expanded but I understand that there is a budget.
Century High School was an excellent place for me to get my secondary education. I always felt challenged enough by my classes, but still very cared for by my teachers. I had many teachers who impressed me with their communication skills and passion for their job. The athletic department was fairly satisfactory, always fair and competitive. The building was clean, well-organized and just the right size, with a great gym, and cafeteria set up. The music department was definitely a highlight. I was very impressed with the variety offered by my high school and the commitment of the staff to their students.
