Century is a great school, considering that they meet the academic needs of the students very well. The schools avid program helps kids who may be the first in their families to go to college, and provides them with additional guidance. For advanced students, there over 14 AP and honors classes. The principle is excellent, and takes an interest in the students learning. Teachers are passionate about what they teach and work towards the success of their students. Overall, Century is extremely safe, well lead, has a student council that has ranked at a gold level for 5+ years, over 30 extracurriculars, and courses that meet the needs of their students.
This school is horrible. Some teachers won't grade papers at all. They just mark down if they turned it in, which does nothing for the learning process. My daughter tells me that her teachers regularly break down crying in class, scream at the students, curse at the students, and watch while students bully each other. It sounds like a complete free for all.
It is obvious the two negative ratings this school has are by parents of kids who had problems staying out of trouble. The fact that this school is tough on trouble makers makes it one of the safer schools in Hillsboro. The admin is great...they care but don't put up with too much. The teachers are great. Low drop out rate and very clean safe school.
The principal and administration are not up to standard. On 3 occasions when they had to provide information they were either late or provided incomplete information that was very crucial. Major overhall ugently required. Teacher comment :- One math. teacher is seriously subpar. There only for pay not for teaching.
I am very disappointed with the way teachers and administrators interact with a majority of the students. They might want to look in the mirror before passing judgement.
You will not find a more diverse school that is as friendly as Century High School. Everyone is accepted for who they are.
As a parent of a 9th grader, I was very impressed with Century. We had no trouble with gangs or school violence. The teachers are interested in helping their students achieve success. We have moved from the area and it is difficult to find a new school that is as great as Century.
I love this school it has helped me to make a huge turn around in my grade. All the teachers and staff are fantastic, and the facility it self is a really plasant environment. I have not enconterd any problens scince i have been attending.
This school was able to turn my child around and now he has made such good friends and is rasing his GPA so fast.
Students are always encouraged to get involved, whether it be sports or clubs or activities, it seems there is a place for everyone. This school does not generally have a problem with cliques, it seems practically everyone gets along just fine. Teachers are helpful and encouraging, and discipline is tough but fair.
Century is a good school...upon moving to this district we were impressed in the difference between this school and our last school. This school didn't allow the kids to hang out in the hallways during class and the teachers and coaches genuinely cared about the kids and overall we were very pleased and impressed.
