Natchitoches Central is a very diverse school from the students, staff and courses offered. Being the largest school in the parish everyone knows one another by attending class or through clubs, sports or other activities available to the students. The administrators and teachers go above and beyond their job description to insure that every student is successful. Most of all my most memorable experience are the friendships I have made!

What I like about Natchitoches Central High School the most is the teachers. . From 9th-12th grade, I've had excellent teachers who would go out of their way to help me learn and make sure I know the material well. The teachers I've had were very generous and even helped me with personal things. The teachers at Natchitoches Central aren't there to just teach the material, but rather to create a connection with the students and to help prepare them for the future, and that's what I love most about them. They made the best of each day and made my High School experience great.
One thing I would like to see change at Natchitoches central is the facilities. Natchitoches Central is a 5A school, yet are facilities are poor. The bathrooms are very disgusting and some don't have doors. The variety of sports deserve nicer locker rooms and weight rooms for each sport. Natchitoches Central needs to look more like a 5A school.
My experience at Natchitoches Central has been very surprising from what I thought it was going to be like before my freshman year. I thought people were going to make fun of me or just no one like me but everyone was so excepting of me and everyone around me. As graduation is getting closer, I’m starting to get sad that I have to leave such a wonderful school and teachers! I also played softball which was a wonderful experience. I got to meet new people not just playing softball but also in my classes. All my teachers were very encouraging of the dreams I had and just wanted me to do my best in school. Not only did they care about school they also cared about my life outside of school. Natchitoches Central has prepared me for college and I can’t wait to graduate! GO CHIEFS!
