Central School District was a nice change from the district I came from in Eastern Oregon. I am considered a 'Special Education' student since I am Autistic and was regulated to the Special Ed room in the other district. When We moved here I was allowed to be mainstreamed and was finally allowed to reach my potential and I am graduating with honors, after participating in AP classes! I was never seen past the label of autism in the other district and here I was seen as an individual.

There has not been a very large variety of classes to choose from while I have attended this school. Teachers often do not have much authority over students which results in fist fights, drug dealing, skipping classes, etc all on premises. Although, teachers and staff do put a lot of effort into making the high school feel like a safe and resourceful place for students. Many of the teachers are very good at providing extra time and resources to help students understand materials and complete assignments/assessments.
As a school central boasted some of the best teachers I have had the privilege of learning under, on the flip side Central also had a high drop out rate. Most importantly Central High School is a safe environment where if your kid puts in the effort there are resources available for her or him to succeed in whatever they put their minds to.

Central gives opportunities for students to earn college credit as well as participating in sports, welding, and drama as well as academics. No School is perfect, and Central does have its faults but the key is that the faculty and staff do their upmost to keep everyone safe as well as providing them the tools to succeed.
