My time at Granville Central has been nothing less than amazing! The teachers and administration are always so nice and excited to see each and every student. The teachers here are always so helpful and dedicated so that each student learns and understands what they are teaching. They dedicate so much of their time and I know every student here thanks them for that. My time so far at Granville Central, I have played multiple sports. The coaches here are nothing by awesome! They are so supportive of every player. My coaches have always pushed me to be the best me that I can possibly be, not only in sports but as well as in the classroom! Granville Central is by far the best high school in our district in my opinion and they have really taught me a lot that I will carry with myself through college and for the rest of my life!

I really liked the layout of the school and how the classes were arranged, though it could get confusing sometimes. Most of the teachers there are pretty nice and seem like they enjoy their jobs, but there are a few that don't know how to keep their students on task and doing their work. I do believe that the school could be just a little bit more diverse. Granville Central doesn't exactly cater to everyone's needs, but I understand that is a bit hard to do, so overall I'm not disappointed. The teachers do a good job teaching the subjects that they need, just like the administrators do their jobs really well.
This is a really nice school, with a lot of clubs, sports, and activities for students to participate in. Overall the teachers are really good and they are very caring for the students. The STEM program here is outstanding. With the faculty trying to bump up school spirit, the athlete's doing good in their seasons and the constant fights and drug usage there's never a dull moment at Central. The administration tries their best to do what they believe is right for the students but they're not always there. Overall, despite the shortcomings, my experience at Central has been a good one.
