Center Point-Urbana Community School District Reviews

At Center Point-Urbana, the clubs are very beneficial to students, but since it is so small, the clubs are minimal and don't have many resources. The faculty includes a lot of teachers that are invested in the future of the children. A couple of years ago, the high school became a blue ribbon school. This notion is supported by the number of students accepted into the National Honors Society and other prestigious organizations. The school does a great job of getting the community involved in activities. For example, the parents of the junior class all come together to make the prom wonderful every year. They also are always willing to help out at sporting events when needed. It is not just sports that get attention, however. The band and choir both get recognized for their accomplishments and are never shoved aside. One of the few setbacks of the school district is that it does not have much diversity. Overall, Center Point-Urbana School is somewhere that I am proud to call my home.

CPU is a great school to attend. Although, I wish we were given more opportunities. Due to the size, we are limited on activities and academics we can participate in. Our clubs are pretty minimal and our schools main focus is sports. Our food is basic, but we have smiling lunch ladies who love what they do. On the bright side, we are a very safe school. With only a couple thousand students in our district we get to know our classmates very well and build good bonds with them. The teachers make sure that everyone participates. In my 12 years of attending the school, I have only heard of a couple kids getting bullied, which is so much better than schools around us. Most kids don't have any problems. CPU is a caring, positive, and upstanding district. Our teachers are kind and supportive. Last year, we received the Blue Ribbon Award for our academics. Overall, CPU is a good school to attend.
I liked how much the teachers cared for the students. In a small-ish school like CPU it was fairly for the teachers to know all the student's names. I never had a teacher who didn't know my name or learn it within the first week of classes. A big bummer in the academic department was I couldn't take any college classes because I loved being in band and choir. It would have been nice to have been able to choose. Also with the music department, and the community as a whole, I wish they could have pulled together an auditorium while I was still in school. It would have been very useful for the arts and even the community, but it wasn't getting enough support. Hopefully it will happen eventually!
