My school has inspired me grow as a learner and also as an individual. I genuinely appreciate the effort from the teachers who have pushed me to really put my all into getting a good education. Though 2 teachers out of the entire staff have let me down by saying very discouraging things regarding my character. I took that as motivation to better myself as a person and I will continue to prove them wrong. I have made great friends here who support me and to this day I have a strong bond with. The food is decent and the lunch staff are so kindhearted. The after-school activities are great, I have a great time with my friends and I get to build onto my skills. My school has offered me so much I can't be more thankful to everyone who has helped me gain knowledge and skill.

My experience with the Center School District has been a roller coaster, I couldn't say it's all good but, I can't say it's all bad. I feel like with Center High School every year I attended its gone down hill not because of the teacher more because of each generation of kids coming in. It seems as if it's getting worse by grade which obviously makes it hard for a school to function properly. I come from a community of mental illnesses, parents on drugs, abuse, fatherless, and that takes a toll on the school and the kids in it. Everyday we can't come and have a good, happy day because of what happens at home. My overall experience is life-changing I love being in this diverse community learning about how to be patient and understanding lives around me.
My experience in Center School district is that it is full with good people and the biggest in the center school district is that the bully is the problem. The school had amazing teachers people in the building you can talk to if there’s an issue that u have. The activities that I’m in is marching band, concert band, tennis, and the things I do outside of school is dance for a dance studio, I did karate and there was Monday marching band practice and football games and basketball games the band play at. Center has a great organization for the students and families.
