I would give it 5 *s if it wasn't for immature and annoying students (most of the students). But other than that, it's an alright school!! I'm about to be a Junior!!


Posted August 27, 2012

I am currently a Senior at Center High School (Class of 2013) and every year I seen the school get worse and worse. Freshmen year was alright, didnt know what to expect so there really was no standard. But sophmore-junior year all I saw was teachers get laid off and classes get dropped. 80% of the students there are immature, I see students get bullied every day, the teacher choose favorites and some teachers even talk about students. The administration is no good, they dont help at all. My friend was bullied and administration just said ignore it. They require 230 credits to graduate and I think 60 of them need to be elective credits but they keep dropping elective courses so you get stuck with classes you dont want . And most the electives available require $20-$40 fee for the class. Since ive been at center ive seen some of my former teachers get dropped as well as electives I wanted to take like cooking and Music today. Also all the money raised ALWAYS goes to football or cheerleading. Freshmen year we were told to bring toilet paper because the school couldnt afford it and half the time even to this day the bathrooms have no soap and the doors dont lock.

I am a former student and Center High failed me. After graduation I went to college and learned how much they hadn t prepared me for. I was lucky to have the instructors I had starting out in college they truly helped me to get caught up to the level I needed to be at.

Center high teachers pick token kids and ignore the other kids that are calling out for help a guidance. I have seen token kid s graduate center then come back as teachers and administrators just to do the same thing to the next gen.

Those of you bad mouthing the Principal Michael Jordan don't know what you are talking about. He supports his teachers like no other principal has before at this school. New teachers do not leave because of his lack of support. Unfortunately they are laid off because the state is in debt and the school doesn't have enough money to keep the newer teachers. This is an excellent high school.

The honors and AP classes my daughter has taken are well taught and fair. They are preparing her for college very well in my opinion.

I'm a former student at CHS. The best thing about it is probably the math department - they have some excellent teachers. I took all the AP classes with the exception of AP Bio and it was really easy especially the senior year. Otherwise, most of the teachers I had were great with a few exceptions. Really loved the French program, I actually still know some of what we were taught! I taught that English and Science departments were way to easy and didn't challenge students enough especially in the AP/Honors classes. Also, this I think this school doesn't provide enough college preparation/guidance when it matters the most and has some useless programs such as Advocacy classes. All in all, CHS has great school spirit, good sports programs, above average faculty but poor administration. It's too bad some of the top teachers are retiring/leaving.

Math program has been shown to be best in surrounding area, better than better funded school such as Rocklin High, Granite Bay and other high schools in Roseville county. Center could be a lot better with stable management. There have been more than 5 Principals since 2005. The English program does not challenge students as rigorously as it should (as evidence of several errors in this review). If a student takes the AP English class he or she will be fine in the end. I am a former student, class of 2009. I am disappointed in the music program, but have faith of good fortune in the future. Soccer (men's and women's teams) and Baseball teams are excellent. The core science courses are solid and provide a good foundation in the Physical, Biological, and Chemistry aspects of science.

Mike Jordon principal lacks leadership qualities to support his teachers and staff, he lets the students walk all over the teachers and the school has a hard time keeping good teachers at the school. Maybe if he stood up for his teachers he wouldn't lose so many good ones!

For all of you reading the parent and student reviews, please remember that it is your responsibility to look after the education for your student or self (if you are the student). Don't blame a school because you didn't fit it, decided to home school or blame the teachers because you flunked. I have two girls that have been students there and never had it easy because they were over achievers. Most kids that home school do it so they can run the streets while their parents are at work. It is never a good idea. If you can't fit in as a teenager, how does not dealing with YOUR problems help? The teachers are wonderful and relate to the kids at all levels, with an open door policy. Center High School isn't a free ride and the students are held accountable for their work and attitudes. There are lots of fun activities to get involved in and if you look at the student s scores you will see that they have achieved very high ratings. Your kids will excel at this school. For those looking for a free ride or an excuse to home school your kid, this isn t the place for you. If you do give them the easy out to stay away from real life, be prepared to deal with the issues that follow.

Love this school. Excellent academic status. Staff and teachers are VERY helpful. School is college-prep oriented, which is great and everyone takes an extra step into helping one another.


Posted February 14, 2008

Center had a lot to offer when I was a student. What parents need to know is to be involved in your child's education - and much like life in general - you and your child will get out of the education and programs offered at Center HS by what you both put into it. (Effort and diligence!) Be a go-getter, going to Center has the option of getting a decent college-ready education. I went to a private university and was able to compete with classmates who attended top private high schools around the country.


Posted January 27, 2008

Center High is really not a Bad school at all. the teachers are good and care about their studebts..... well .. most of the time lol. Mr. Stamm is the most awsomest teacher ever to come to CHS. he care for his students and will help them with anything. his teaching ways are inccredible and a studebnt will learn

This school disapointed me greatly, the reason why is because; the teachers did not help me at all [except Mrs. Sission]. Also the people there made it very hard for me to learn. I regret ever going there!! this is the reason why I am in homeschool now! =[

Center High School is the best kept secret in town! My Children transfered to Center 3 years ago. Both are doing great! Their Media acadamy is wonderful, The staff really cares about the students. I am so glad we changed from the Roseville School District!

I have 1 child graduating this year and his 4 years at Center have been awesome. He passed the exit exam in his sophomore year and has always been happy with his teachers and happy with his education. My son was given guidance in college selection and encouraged to go to college, I didn't have this when I was in school. All of the students I've met from Center High are well adjusted, mature young adults and I believe the school staff/teachers are a huge part of their success in school and in society. I have another son starting high school next year and I wouldn't have him go to any other school.

Very motivated, intelligent and caring faculty and staff. Safe and better funded than most schools now. Aging faculty gives the school experience and patience and tolerance. A generally kind and caring student body.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
