Habersham Central High School has a myriad of redeemable qualities, from it's amazing faculty and safety procedures to the teachers and fine arts departments. There are a few downsides, however. Due to the "Choose My Plate" requirements on school lunches, most portions are small and comparable to an elementary child's average lunch. The clubs, while interactive and fun, are more about advancing in life and in college rather than hobbies or interests of the students. A lot of these things could be changed easily but the school tends to focus more on safety and faculty issues than general student enjoyment.

As a senior, I’ve attended Habersham Central for almost three years now. I can say that my overall experience with my school has been overall very pleasant. I’ve enjoyed every year getting to make new friends and being open to new experiences. This will always be a place I will remember and associate with smiling faces and understanding teachers. Although one thing I would say I would change about the school is over having allowing students to have more time with their teachers and administrators, I feel a lot of the time I feel as if I’m not a priority or no time is being made, and just for the future I would just say it’s best to make time for upcoming students.
I have a lot of anxiety, but the teachers at Habersham Central have really helped me to feel at home. They also have an APEX counseling program, so I can see my therapist at school (basically no worries about missing appointments due to transportation issues). The faculty really cares about the students, and the student body itself is better than a lot of schools. Like all schools, we have the people who are not the best, but so many people that I have met have been exceedingly kind to me and open to my sexuality and mental illnesses.
