One thing I liked the most about Century was the Academic support from other teachers and colleagues outside of class. It has a very welcoming environment. And also, being in a sports was very beneficial because teammates encouraged each other instead of trying to compete against each other. I personally has a very good experience at Century so there isn't really anything that I think needs a major change. Loved my experience!

There is a very lively "AP culture" at century. This means that as you get older many people see those that dont take AP or honors classes instead of taking the regular class will be looked down upon. Another part of "ap culture" at Century is crippling mental health. There are some mostly great couscelors and social workers at the school but a couple of them really don't do their job well.
The Band program at this school is put of this world. The director is fantastic and well respected across all students not just those in her classes.
Many teachers at the the school are unbelievable compassionate but theres a high turn over rate in select departments because of misbehavoir on the teacher's side.
The extracerricular activities at this school come in great variety. You want to do a sport? We have all of them for both boys and girls. You want to be in the play or the musical or on debate? Just audition. There's a multitude of service organization clubs, activism clubs, and more
