    Overall Experience: I would choose this school again because it is overall a great school. Lots of things are amazing about Center including the teachers, class rooms and enviroment. A few thing that could change would be the gum around campus and how large some of the class sizes are.

    Overall Experience: My experience so far has been fantastic. The teachers and the diversity of the students makes this school unique. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because the teachers are so helpful and the students contribute to creating a safe, positive environment.

    Overall Experience: It's one of the best schools academically. however, not a lot is put towards sports. the teachers really want to teach and help the students out in any way possible.

    Overall Experience: I have been in honors classes since freshman year and have made some really amazing friends in those classes. However, I have noticed the difference in advanced classes and the other students who are not in these classes. There are students who, evidently, do not care what anyone thinks of them. I see girls walking around in the shortest shorts and the tightest clothes every day, boys who sag, several students who bring a speaker and blast their inappropriate music, and the teachers do not say a thing. There are only a select few teachers who have addressed these students, but anyone can see the sleaziness and tackiness of the student body. I would much rather go to a classier school than Center High School.

    Overall Experience: The athletic teams at Center High School are a lot of fun. Also, the classes are very challenging but doable.
