    Health & Safety: Safety isn't something the school is very adamant about but students and staff feel safe while in class.

    Extracurriculars: At Central there are options for literally everyone. Sports are well liked by everyone but some people are more into business, art, community involvement, their culture, or health sciences, even skateboarding. Whatever you are into you, you will find something to get involved in.

    Overall Experience: Greeley Central holds many traditions that are carried out spectacularly and the history of the school is well preserved. Students, parents, and faculty are very spirited which makes events extremely enjoyable like the homecoming parade/game.

    Teachers: The teachers at my school go above and beyond for students. Most teachers are willing to give up their own lunch time to help struggling students.

    Teachers: Don't get me wrong I love my school, heck my mom is a teacher at my school, but I have a bone to pick with some of my teachers. For example I have been going to Greeley Central for three years and I have only ever had one good math teacher. She was my Geometry teacher. From the moment the bell rang she never sat down she taught standing up and then walked around the class room helping the students. She never got frustrated or turned us down when we would come in for extra help. All of the AP teachers at my school are also very helpful they reach out to students, fill them with confidence and the tools they might need to succeed.
