Century High School is one of the greatest schools. The teachers are very cooperative and helpful. The students are nice.

I am a Freshman in this school. Eventhough people say it is very bad, if you come to learn you will succeed. if you are a gangster not trying to learn than you will fail.

I DO NOT LIKE THIS SCHOOL AT ALL. VERY FEW OF THE TEACHERS EVEN CARE ABOUT OUR STUDENTS. MY SON ATTENDS THIS SCHOOL BUT I WILL BE PUTTING HIM IN ANOTHER SCHOOL NEXT YEAR BECAUSE THAT IS HOW SORRY THIS SCHOOL IS. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW SOME OF THE STAFF EVEN HAVE JOBS HERE. IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THE WAY SOME OF THE "ADULTS" HERE TREAT OUR STUDENTS. THEY DON'T DESERVE TO BE WORKING WITH CHILDREN

I am currently attending Century as a Junior. It is no Godinez or Segerstrom, but it is what it is. It is a high school that has some high achieving students, and some low ones. I am in the top percentile of my class and I know all the high achievers. They are great people who can do so much and have the greatest potential. It pains me when people say Century students are all horrible. It is so untrue and hurtful to all of us. Century deserves at least 3 stars because it does need work, but it is an average high school.

Great school, nevertheless, there are many who continue bashing Century. This school deserves to have a better stand, and more support from the state overall. We are not underachievers, we are as successful if not more than many other schools!

I currently attend Century, and I have to say the stereotypical view of this school is way wrong. Sure there are low achieving students, but there are also high and extremely talented students here. Most of the low achieving students, have English as their second language, so in reality, these kids are trying their best to even learn the language! This school has been improving since my freshman year, and I hope it continues to grow even better.

Leadership is of the lowest level I have ever seen anywhere. Very sad for the students.

Century was once a great example of technology and academics. Politics and weak Principals and constant changing of teachers has made Century what it is today. Disoriented, not commited to the community, and poor planning. Sorry I rate this school less than a three, and will need to look out of district.

this school literally deserves 0 stars. I am a student at this school and I do not recommend this school for anyone. This school is a disgrace to education. A few teachers are great, but most seem to be unfit for teaching. I do not know how they got hired but that's the school's problem.

Very good teachers. Excellent jobs. They have wide variety of sports to choose. Many parents always involved in helping the school.
