Central Community Unit School District No. 301 Reviews

Central High School is a small town school with about 1000+ kids who are always involved in something. Even the parents get involved and help out at the school in any way they can! There are clubs here for all types of students no matter your interest. The administration and faculty help make the school 10 times better, we even have an awesome school cop. I can't think of a single teacher I didn't like. The teachers make you feel included and important to the class by spending hours on end to help us out when we struggle. Our student led student section may be small, but we are always mighty and loud. Football and basketball games are what we live for at central; getting together with our Burlington family and cheering on our friends or school mates at games we all love to watch. Central doesn't look for what the best interest of the school is...they look for what is in the best interest of the students who attend Burlington Central High School in little Burlington, Illinois.

As a student under the school district of Central 301, I have found there to be several ups and downs, many of these downs being corrected over the past few years. The administration and faculty team is amazing, as well as the resources they provide. The diversity and college readiness at the school is beyond expectation, as well as the level of safety and culture (including clubs, activities, sports, and extracurriculars). The building is a bit old, which leads to some issues underground, but these are often fixed within a few days, so they are hardly worth notice.
Teachers place all attention on those who they believe will achieve success. Unfortunately, with all eyes on the star students, it is difficult to believe that three of the top five students in the 2018 graduating class cheated their way through every Advanced Placement and Honors class offered. Disappointed in accountability. Required classes act as lead weights, weighing down and slowly poisoning those who rise above the vape clouds blown in every bathroom.
