Teachers at Central are some of the best in Colorado. All with great college backgrounds coming from different states of the country, and some come from a city besides Greeley. My College Algebra teacher come all the way from Estes Park to teach us every morning! I had an English teacher that came from Windsor, and another that came from Loveland. Just the fact that the teachers are willing to come from places besides Greeley, demonstrates the how great Greeley Central is, and how motivated they are to come and teach us students.

Attending Greeley Central High School is an eye opening experiance. The school had an incredible amount of dedicated teachers and staff. All of Greeley Central's employees were geared towards helping each individual student. Many teachers and staff would stay long after their required time to help how ever they could. It was amazing to see such a drive to educate. Although, the school often lacked funding for basic needs, Greeley Central still managed to exccell. Greeley Central offered a nurturing and supportive enviorment to learn and push past the standard. Greeley Central does more than just their best with what they have.

At Greeley Central, we have a squad of two or three Police Officers monitoring the campus at all times. Also, we have a group of three security guards that are always on the look out for students who are ditching or any problems that may occur. Our school nurse is properly trained to heal what might be wrong with a student which is great! Overall as a school, it is extremely safe. If a fight were to ever occur (which doesn't that often) the situation would be under control in minutes, many of the times I do not know there was a fight until a class mate lets me know.
