    Academics: Our schedule is very odd, but there's nothing our school has to do about it--its all the downtown district. Workload is very heavy if you are enrolled in an AP class, but the quality of those classes far outweigh the downside to the amount of work. The teachers of the higher level classes are so awesome and understanding.

    Food: Our school just recently switched from 80% processed food to 20% processed. Much of what we eat was grown and made locally, and is, therefore, very healthy. It tastes awesome, and many of the students don't realize they're eating well!

    Student Culture & Diversity: We have a very diverse student population, which is awesome. However, students are often made fun of for their differences, whether it be sexual orientation or race. The student who have been poked at are to the point though where they hardly notice that they're being teased. If it doesn't bother them, is it still bullying? Our school could use some tolerance.

    Extracurriculars: At Central, we have a wide variety of extracurricular activities. While they are all fun and encouraging environments, not all of them are supported equally by the administration staff. For instance, our principal is obviously more dedicated to the boys sports than the girls, and any sport over the arts. Seeing as we are an arts magnet school, the arts are extremely important. The program is fantastic, despite the lack of support in comparison to other programs. Each thread of the magnet (visual, dance, music, theatre, etc.) is a family and produces fantastic works, much like our other clubs, like DECA, FCCLA, StuCo, Key Club and NHS.

    Teachers: Most care. Some don't. If you don't think exactly like some of them, you suffer.
