I think that centerville is a great school with a great faculty, however I do think there are some changes that would benefit our student body. I love the challenging courses our school offers. Centerville prepares their students for college. My changes would have to do with things such as discipline and help to get overall student involvement to rise. For instance, I have watched our dress code be unfairly enforced. By that I mean the principals pick and choose who gets sent home for the dress code and who they let "slide by with a warning". If the dress code is truely such a large problem, I believe our school should enforce it on all students: including athletes, good students, and "favorites". I also believe our school is so strict and principals scare the kids so much that our students lack desire to be at school and participate in activities like after school activities.

There are some extremely excellent teachers and some extremely qualified teachers. As with any school, we do have a sprinkling of teachers that do not TEACH well. Our math area lacks extremely and our science area is only good for the students that are highly intellectual based on the teacher's inability to pass on her knowledge in a way that average students can understand.

The safety in the school is okay, but the bullying is an issue. Centerville students aren't accepting and it's hard to fit in when you're a minority or aren't doing whatever they're into, aka drugs, alcohol, partying. Personally, I found it hard to express myself.
