Posted May 18, 2004

I am concluding my sophomore year at Clarke Central, and all I can think about is how I only have 2 yeas left at this school. I cannot wait to get out. Everyday I dread going to school because it is, to say the least, miserable. There are a few teachers whom I will admit are terrific, but most are not only rude, but incompetent and biased. And the security is terrible. One cannot leave merely a pen on a desk for 5 minutes without it being stolen. Not to mention the fact that the majority of students are complete jerks. Everyday I come home thinking about how much I hate my school. Many things need to be improved because nothing is adequately enforced.

I think Clarke Central is a great school with many opportunities! I will be in the class of 2007 and I and the rest of the student body am very proud to be apart of such a great school.

I believe that this school is not given enough credit where credit is due. There are some very dedicated teachers here and the students all seem to be proud of their school. I am still proud of it even after graduating in 1995 cause of all the wonderful changes that have been made to make the school look and operate better. My parents and relatives would agree too....they are all former graduates of Clarke Central as well!
