Peoria high school is a great school. I have learned a lot from my teachers and fellow students and I continue to learn more every day. I love that students have the chance to make a bond with their teachers and feel free to express their opinion on any topic. Teachers recognize the students who put in the effort to do their part for Peoria high school and students who are academic leaders. They reward them with treats, field trips, and other incentives to make every student feel a part of a family that loves them like its their own.

I like how Peoria High School helps there students with their life beyond high school. Peoria High School puts just as much focus on college and career readiness just as much as they do our normal required classes such as history, English, math, and science. I also like how they’re not just helping juniors and seniors but every grade level 9-12.
I like about Peoria High School is that it has been challenging for me ever since I went there. As i move up a grade level classes start being harder but it is a good thing because it is preparing me for college. It show me what to expect in college like sometime there are no second chances. If I do not do an assignment it is already a letter grade down. Being at central really help me prepare for college. Some teacher not only help for college but also life and want us to be successful.
