Central School District Reviews

I’ve been there at central high school since I’ve been a freshman and my experience has been a great growth in life. The only thing I would change is the society in the school and sadly I have felt every year seems repetitive and I would like it to be more out there. But we also spread awareness over many things and made our state proud. We also should do more fundraisers and start making a difference in sports and other activities. I would also like to be encouraged to do more stuff instead of feeling like an outsider.

Overall, the teachers care a lot about their students. They make the effort to help students after school and even during their lunch. With that being said, the administration is just terrible. Students aren't held accountable when they get into trouble.
Central School District consists of students from the small towns of Independence and Monmouth consisting of mainly whites and Hispanics . Definitely a sports based town. The coaches are great and everyone in the town supports the local teams. As for the Academics, I believe they were a little too easy on us students. But that aside, the teachers really do have the students best interest at heart and are super friendly. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved with the schools. The kids grow up with great school pride and upbeat attitudes.
