My experience at Joliet Central High School has been an amazing learning environment! There is a great atmosphere throughout the building and the students. Students are very involved in clubs, activities and sports the school offers them. The students are always offered opportunities and resources for them to be successful in college and life after college.
The facilities are great! Usually very clean and maintenance is done constantly. There are also many newer buildings so it is up to the standards of new technology.

Security is also great and always made sure to keep us safe.

The actual learning was average, as much of the schoolwork was busywork rather than actually engaging for the student.
