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.

The academics are phenomenal. There are many opportunities for students to grow intellectually. Numerous clubs, organizations, and sports are available and any student is sure to find one that suits him/her best. I am proud to say that I have felt safe all my years with CCUSD No. 301. Fights, drugs, alcohol, or bullying have never greatly impacted mine or others ability to concentrate on school. The only unpleasurable aspect about the district is how often their policies, guidelines, schedules, etc. change. It is not beneficial to students to have an unpredictable environment and after a while it gets hard to adapt. Consistency and reliability are keys to this district's and its students' success.
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.
