    Overall Experience: Overall Clarke Central is a good school. As far as learning I would rate them a 4 out of 5. Most 95% of the teachers are willing to work with you and help you succeed. Their Athletics program would also get a 4 out of 5. We have good teams and everyone is supportive, but cheerleaders don't really get the respect they deserve, and I myself is a cheerleader. The building is being renovated, so after that is done with, I would rate 5 out of 5. Last but not least food. I would rate the food a 2 out of 10. I think its a 2 because the food the serve us is gross. I wouldn't give them a 1 or 0 because, it is supposed to be healthier and i think that is something that should all ways be kept in mind.
