Farmville Central Overall is a good school, It's a small town so everyone knows everyone but if you're like me and don't live in Farmville it'll probably take you awhile to get in to one of the "cliques" One thing I can say is no matter what drama occurs, who doesn't like who or whatever the school spirit will never die! When it comes to the infamous Jaguar Den everyone comes together to support the school. As academics go majority of Farmville's teachers want to see students succeed and gives them many resources to do so also there's many clubs that you can join. If you're looking for a school with lots of spirit and educational opportunities for a small town Farmville is the place to go.

I was able to be veey social, which is someyhing that I did not get to do when I was on online school. The one thing that confuses me is students get taken out of class or suspended for not-so-good reasons. I feel like if a student is punished for an action they made in school, they should have extra school time because taking them out of class or sending them home doesn't do them any good. In my school, a suspension for arguing is more than the days you have to miss to fail. It doesn't make sense.
What I liked about Farmville Central High School is how every teacher I had from 9th-12th grade showed genuine interest the well being of students. My senior year of high school, I had an online math class and the instructor for the class was at a different school. When I couldn't get a response fast enough from the online instructor, there were a number of math teachers at the school that I could go to and ask for help. Even though some of them had never taught me before, they made sure all my questions were answered thoroughly. One teacher would even drop what she was doing during her planning period to help me to understand a lesson.

The only thing I would change about the school is one of the administration workers. The worker would have an attitude whenever I needed her help with doctors notes and making sure my absences were straightened out.
