Centerville is an extremely small community. There is not a lot of diversity, but we embrace other cultures through the foreign language clubs and have often had exchange students from other countries, but it is very accepting of other new students. There is quite a bit of student involvement whether it be through clubs or sports. Almost everyone does something. I am unsure about peer pressure since I've never really been in a situation involving peer pressure or if I have been, I always stood my ground. Students within the school are pretty nice about sexual orientation. It's only the school rules involving dances that are pretty harsh about homosexual couples.

Many electives are offered at the school and core classes include AP/honors and general classes. Students are offered anything from Nutrition and Wellness to AP English or AP Calculus. Majority of science classes require Biology as a prerequisite to others such as Anatomy and Physiology or Chemistry. Honors classes requires one to apply for it before being accepted, the same with AP courses if one is not already enrolled into the honors classes. The workload for the AP classes is manageable and often times enjoyable if one enjoys the challenge presented and the subject. The teachers are wonderful and funny with all of the stories and the way they present these courses. It can be such fun if one tries to make it that way as well as challenging and difficult.

The organization of Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.) is quite popular and whenever bullying is brought up, there is a day when students wear a certain colored T-shirt to state that they are against bullying. They are also quite aware of just what bullying another student can do to this student and so bullying is not an extreme issue. I have not witnessed any bullying.
The dress code is completely understandable since people tend to go overboard, but the fact that shorts or skirts have to be knee-length is a bit annoying since one can't really find such clothes often. Other than that, I think the dress code is fine.
