I thoroughly enjoying my time as a Bearcat! The classes are rigorous and I am an AP student. The teachers and administration work hard at making sure the students have a safe and comfortable learning environment. Classes are done online and each student receives a chromebook. The only downside is that some kids ruin the learning experience by being disruptive. Other than that, great school that is put in a negative light.

Muncie Central High School is a very good school and the teacher are amazing people! The teachers at this high school only what is best for you and provide the best education for all students. The only thing that I want to change in this high school would be the food because providing more food and better food would make the students happy.
Muncie Central High School is an OK school. It's good academic wise, and holds a variety of extracurricular activities for students, however, personally as a student, the environment is overwhelming and toxic for me. Academic counselor's don't prepare students well resource-wise for college readiness, and its disappointing. Teacher's don't give their best. Students need more control.
