The Center School Reviews
I love my school! Have truly found a home here and would not trade my experience for anything else. Our clubs are strong, active, diverse, and probably the best places to develop a strong group of friends and peers. Teachers care, are passionate about what they teach, and are people that I look up to/talk to/trust. Would say that like many places it is what you make of it and getting involved within the school is probably the best way to do that.
My experience thus far has been extremely positive, most teachers are supportive and understanding. They treat students like people. The school community is really strong and so is spirit among students. We support each other through success and failure here
I'll start with what I don't like about The Center School, and there is a fair amount. Being an extremely small school, the classes are quite limited. We don't have a band or sports program or a great number of elections. Though we have an extremely large population of LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse kids, we are severely lacking in racial diversity. Right now, our school is around 70% white. There is much that makes up for this though. The Center Schools fosters the most intimate community. Never before have I had teachers that I also consider some of my best freinds. Walking down the halls, I know everyone and do not hesitate before waving to everyone I pass. The Center School is what you make of it, and if you are willing to put in the work to get the most of the community and everything this school has to offer, the fours years you dedicate are sure to be ones you remember with pride.
