What I like about my high school North Central, is that we are like a family. I use to attend Camden middle school, and in the middle of my ninth-grade year, I was moved to North Central. I never thought I would love and care for North Central as I do now. If someone would have told me that North Central would be a part of me, I wouldn't believe it. North Central has changed me inside and out. It has made me a hard-working woman, strong-minded, and a leader. When North Central High school was destroyed by a EF-2 tornado, we were devastated, but we stick together. We got through the unbearable by being there for each other. U-KNIGHTED WE STAND! One thing I would change about North Central is the sports departments being more active with each other. Other than that, North Central is a magnificent place. GO KNIGHTS!!

I love North Central High School. Everything that happen at North Central is great. The amount of love in the school makes it feel like home. Even if you do not like school, North Central will teach you to love it. Everyone at North Central cares about your well being and we get through anything, including the tornado that destroyed our school in January. North Central High School really is a special place.
I liked the personal relationships and how easy it was to make relationships with students and staff. It's a very small school with about 500 students, so everyone knows pretty much everybody in the community and school. A problem with going to a small school in the country is that it's very sport-oriented. The Arts and JROTC programs never get any financial aid from the school. Everything is based around football or volleyball. I would like to see the drama, band, and JROTC programs more involved and welcomed by the staff and students.
