Century high school is often wrongly bashed on. There are MANY teachers and staff members who truly care about the future of their students. Moreover, the school has undergone great change in recent years and yet it's negative reputation still wrongfully follows it. Newly appointed principal Mr. parra clearly understands his students situations and leads by great example. A visit, rather than reading reviews, will clear out any concerns any parent/student may have.
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.
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.
