Central City Public Schools Reviews

What I liked about my high school experience would be that I wouldn't want to go to some other high school. I wouldn't have changed where I went to high school for anything. What I liked about my school was that there is still some freedom without going overboard. It has wonderful teachers that care for the students and want the best for them. We have a high success rate on standardized tests so we have a good academic program. Everyone in our school has a good bond and we are close nit group of friends. We have a lot of people in sports because we are a small school, but that has only made us closer.

The school district is becoming very progressive. Four years ago the school and community were in dire straits for a variety of reasons. With new leadership, we are seeing extremely positive changes. The Career Pathways Initiative is just one of the ideas that will be reality in the near future.
While Central City attempts to carry out policies that are protective and beneficial to students, I think that they have done a mediocre at best job of it. The school has made strides in equalizing the attention and recognition of Fine Arts and sports, it is my true opinion that they still have quite a long ways to go in that area.
