    Overall Experience: Overall, I've had a good experience at this school. While we are somewhat cliquey, Century doesn't have a real bullying problem. For the most part everyone is friendly, even if they aren't extremely close. The classes offered are good, the teachers know what they're talking about most of the time and they do a good job of making sure students understand the material. As far as AP classes go, Century is not the best at preparing students for the exams but they do an adequate enough job at teaching all the material. Teachers are pretty chill for the most part, they relate with students and joke around with them; on the flip side of those positive relationships Century's students have an awful habit of twisting appropriate things the teachers do with students and make it seem bad to an administrator just to get the teacher in trouble because they don't like them. It's ridiculous that the staff turns on each other so fast and will over-punish the teacher being complained about for absolutely no reason. I would go to this school again; while we are awful at sports our Arts department is very successful in all sects included. Theater, Choir, Marching Band, Colorguard/Winterguard, and Drumline are all award-winning and most are ranked state-wide. Besides from the overwhelming disrespect students are allowed to show staff, I have no real complaints about Century High School.

    Overall Experience: The teachers really make this school amazing! Our budget is far from spectacular, the kids are like any other high school students, and the building seriously needs some insulation for the winter and AC in the summer...but the staff is very passionate about what they teach and they go out of their way to be available to students!

    Overall Experience: my high school was one of the lucky ones to not have the extra curricular activities cut from the school budget. but that meant some other parts of the school was lacking like college and life prep, and student services like issues councilors and decent sex education.

    Overall Experience: One thing I loved about this school is how they always highlighted extracurricular activities whether it be basketball or band. All were recognized during assemblies received the some spotlight. Century is a school where it is extremely to get involved and while I was attending the star athletes were also stars in the classroom and not your stereotypical "jock". I really did love this school.

    Extracurriculars: I only participated in a couple activities in high school. While it was really fun, it was hard to get leadership roles in these activities.
