This school offers an excellent environment compared to the other schools available. Student to teacher ratio is low which allows the teachers to pay attention to student and offer real support and encouragement. I will never forget my teachers. Also the student body is more chill and down to earth. Students at other schools are so full of themselves and create so much drama. This school is not like that.

School is really great. Teachers actually care about the students and has the best learning environment. I've been to Hunter high and kearns high and both schools don't compare to Centeral people think it's a bad school since they hear about every student that goes there just wants to graduate even though they bad decisions sluffin, failing classes there all there to learn

I enjoyed going to this school to the umpth degree! I would suggest this school to any Parent looking for a good school for thier child that is either having problems at thier current school or planning on graduating early. The teachers are great! The student to teacher ratio and is minimal conpared to other public schools.

This school is the best there is no better high school in utah. It helps kids who were going down the wrong way to get back up and get another chance. Kids who most wouldnt expect to graduate will. The teachers are the best the are a big help.
