The academics aren't that strong, mostly from lack of teachers here from budget cuts... a few years back there was a slew of options available to students, but many teachers teach many topics now to cover for missing spaces. In fact, there's two unused amazing chemistry and biology rooms, but no teacher to teach it, except in a small cramped room. THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS! :) Students may join an early college program and graduate with an associate degree or do CTE or dual enrollment out at the college!

Some of my most fond memories attending this school were playing sports with some of my closest friends. At our school we normally have a few different sports teams that qualify for state every year. I am a three-sport athlete and I am very satisfied with our sports programs. I would want to stay in this area because it is close to the beach, yet far enough to where you can have some privacy and land. Some activities I like to do is go hunting, working, swimming, skateboarding, riding dirt bikes and much more. This community is not given enough credit for all of the talents and organizations put together within this small county.
The health and safety of Mason County Central is great. We were trained for two weeks about safety from our local police. We were taught to barricade doors and to actually fight when someone invades our school with intentions of hurting my classmates and teachers. Which was actually kind of shocking because up until this year, we were taught to hide, not fight. I like it is a good idea to teach people everywhere to fight back because it reminds you of your worth. Not to just sit there with the lights off waiting to see if the intruder will find you or not. Also, a person in particular, our health teacher, is known to be the person to find when someone gets hurt.
