High School Senior

On Academics: The academics are top notch and the teachers are always willing to stay after as long as students need help.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: It seems that the administrators are close to the football players (trouble makers) so discipline isn't really enforced that often.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: There are many different cliques and you have to find a group to be with for all 4 years. Football team and marching band are really important in Fall but that's about it for athletics. Centreville is ranked one of the top schools in one of the top school counties in the nation.

High School Senior

On Food: The food is good for the most part. Sometimes, the food is really good but other days it's just plain horrible. Like once I was having a pizza and the cheese wouldn't bite through because it was whole. But the cookies and tacos are pretty good.

High School Senior

On Teachers: I really like the teachers at cvhs, they are all very friendly and admirable. They are very miserly and I felt comfortable most of the times in approaching them.
