Centerville High School 1

If i could give 0 stars I could. This school is far too large so little attention is focused on students, and the attitude of faculty is impersonal ans uncaring. There is a larged and biased focus on athletics and no recognition for students who achieve academically or otherwise. Not all of the teachers are poor, but a good deal of them practice favoritism and don't try to hide it. When you go here it does not feel like a high school, it feels like an office building with classrooms and bosses that could not care less about your well-being and achievement.

Not as friendly as all these other reviews are claiming. Most of them aren't even students so they wouldn't truthfully know I used to go here take my word.

Excellent. Centerville H.S. truly cares about their students. As parents, we couldn't be happier. From day one of our son's junior year, and now in his senior year, he's having a wonderful and rewarding experience in his short attendance at Centerville H.S. He's getting the help he needs. He's encouraged and challenged to be better by both teachers and students. Forming great relationships. Friendly atmosphere and limitless boundaries. Moving our son to Centerville H.S. was the best thing we could have done for our son... He's growing academically and athletically at Centerville H.S. Thanks to all the faculty, coaches, staff, and student... WELL DONE! Derrick & Hope Goldsmith

I could not be more pleased with the education my two children have received at Centerville High School. (Our students did not attend Centerville City Schools until high school). There are so many options for students at all levels, and the curriculum allows for a wide range of interests, too. Love the career tech path that allows students to learn and sample a specific field. Top notch teachers. Administration provides proper amounts of communication.

I am a retired teacher and school administrator, plus I substitute teach at Centerville High School occasionally. I must say I am very impressed with quality and behavior of the students. The teachers and the administration are very professional. Recently the College Board recognized CHS for their work in increasing access to AP courses and for the percentage of students earing scores of 3 (out of 5) or higher on AP exams. The College Board is a not for profit group that promotes college readiness. AP classes are college-level classes and a 3 or higher can earn college credit or advanced college credit. This is a GREAT SCHOOL.

Elementary schools are great. High school is horrible. Lots of favoritism with students. Principals are horrible. They do not care about the students at all. Looking at home schooling so my child can get a good education. You cant seem to get it here.

Though not all the teachers are the best, there are many great teachers at Centerville High School. Students are challenged a lot in the classroom and very well prepared for further education. In addition, there are many extracurricular activities to get student involved. We love CHS!!

This is an AMAZING school. I moved and went to a quite horrid school compared to Centerville. CHS has everything and offers more languages than schools I know. I would give anything to go back to it. The courses are challenging and it feels like college. Go here, and you'll be set.
