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.

Generally there was a good student teacher relationship and learning was easy to do. However , like most schools they had information that wasn't realistic to the real world. Our administration was always helpful and tried their best to make Center a great learning center. No pun intended. Our teachers and staff all worked their butts off to try to make learning interesting as well as making sure students actually learned. They supported students as they rallied to speak out against school shootings and to ensure a safe learning environment.
I loved all the people I got a chance to meet and create friendships with. Everyone there made Center High school what it was. I was in the Center School district since elementary school and was able to participate in many fun activities with my friends that made everything all the more fun. At graduation I cried as I hugged and said goodbye to my teachers and mentors I had grown to personally know and create relationships with. Center was a large chapter in my book of Life that I will always remember.
