Overall my experience at South Central High School was great! Freshmen year I was a regular student, went to school and came home. Sophomore year i began to get a little more involved in school and the sports/extra curricular. My first year on dance team was sophomore year and all the way through to senior year. I also got into clubs my senior year. South Central is a great school, overall I had a great high school experience there.

At South Central High School, I loved the diversity. I also love how they’re always open and giving us ,students, many ways to flourish in life, through the opportunities available. I also loved the interactions and positive atmosphere they all possessed. I would love to see a difference in the type of classes available. I feel that there should be more classes that’ll help students in life. I also feel that there should be higher pay for every hard-working teacher, and less homework over weekends and holidays, to give students a refreshing break, to be prepared for the following school week ahead.
Best school in the area we are the 4a state champion in basketball. I truly have a lot of memories at the school being able to socialize and become friends with future division 1 athletes, doctors and etc. Being at South Central since a freshman truly showed how to build a culture we are known for winning and being the best at everything when came down to sports, bands, the dance team you name. The school constantly finds ways to have an expressive experience on how we learn day in and day out. The teachers are great and very relatable towards the students. The idea of SOAR really helped me when I needed extra assist on assignment, we where provided study halls and other activities they could keep you from having a textbook in your face for hours throughout the day. The school comes up with great events to rewards good student such as offering snow cones to kid who haven't gotten into trouble. Never had any major problems with technology or ways to help us receive a better learning.
