In my three years at Cape Central High School, I have fallen in love with how awesome my teachers are and how they will go above and beyond to help me out in any way. Also, student leadership is really stepping up its game to apply to all students and encourage all students to get involved. Central also has so many opportunities to enhance your God-given talents through sports, clubs, and academics! I love Cape Central High School!

Over all I find my district to be decently well rounded, there is plenty of diversity but due to feuding political stances, there is a problem with frustration between popularity groups, the popular kids don’t have a stance, the freshman believe in who what would get them more friends, and my group believes in something cause we don’t care about what others think about our stance. We just believe what we believe.
I attend the Cape Central High school in the Cape Girardeau School District and for the most part it has been a good experience. This school offers a great smorgasbord of advanced classes, like Honors and AP courses. There are plenty of teachers who you can make genuine relationships with and who will help you in your academic pursuits. You will also run into some teachers who do not fit this bill as much. The sports at Cape Central are pretty solid and are a great way to be active in your school and make friends. Cape Central is a diverse school and has a slew of advantages to look fondly upon.
