The teachers are great, the school just got a renovation so it is more up to date which will help foster a better learning environment. Great sports programs!
My experience at Central has been overall great! The staff does an amazing job keeping the school clean. The teachers are all great and work well with students. They always make sure to make time for everyone! The guidance counselors are the greatest. They are always there to help if you ask, especially if you just need someone to talk to. They are good at making you feel comforted. The school's construction has not gotten in the way with too much, but the school will turn out awesome within the next couple of years. I love the spirit and dedication the student section has during sporting events. Truly proud to be a mustang!
