Cheektowaga Central is a very diverse and unique place. You know everyone who goes there whether it is in the classroom, athletics, or clubs. The teachers are very helpful, the administrators are kind and aware of everyones situation and try to accomodate everyone's personalities. They help everyone prepare for their future.
There are some things I love about Cheektowaga High School, one of them is how the teachers goes to their extra miles to help any students to get there grades up by staying after school. The other things is playing sport is so much fun you get to compete with tough school and get to improve while doing so.
