I have had an overall good experience at Nash Central High School. I have always had good teachers and resources while attending. My biggest complaint is that sometimes the class sizes are too big for the teacher to handle and this causes disruption in the classroom and delay of teaching, which puts the teacher behind in the curriculum. Discipline is not handled well at Nash central either. I have witness students treating teachers with full out disrespect and nothing is ever done to punish these students. The student life is pretty average. You are expected to do your work and if not you fail. There are not really any consequences when it comes to the refusal of doing your work, other than failure in the class.

I have had an amazing experience at Nash Central High School. One of the main problems is I feel the guidance counselors did not give me all of the information I needed to be successful, like I was unaware students could take extra classes. And I want as many cords as possible at graduation but it’s hard to figure out what you can get cords for, you have to ask around and figure out yourself. But the administration is amazing, sports are thriving and it’s an amazing school to attend.
Nash Central High School is a very diverse high school with many opportunities for others to succeed. NCHS has multiple clubs offered, so that ANY one can find their fit. High school is not easy, but if you surround yourself with like-minded people it makes it a lot more bearable. I participated in many clubs and activities including, pep club, drama club, creative writing club, I was in show choir, I participated in all four musicals, and was on the volleyball team for four years. NCHS is like a huge family, everyone wants to see you succeed. Find your fit, find where you belong so that you may go out into the world after high school as a better you!
