    Topic: Academics | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "A few years ago I would've said that the academics at our school were outstanding. However, this past year we had certain AP and honors courses taken away from the curriculum as well as the challenge program for our more intelligent and creative students. We also previously lost a few teachers who had or were working towards their masters in their degree. Despite these changes, Cape Central's curriculum is still very rigorous and exceptional. The teachers work with the students to better understand the ever evolving ACT/SAT, dual credit, and AP exams. The scheduling process at our school can be difficult for student wishing to be placed in many AP courses, but it is still fairly easy to figure out the best schedule for yourself. Workload differs in our school depending on the amount of academically challenging classes a student takes. As a student who is currently enrolled in four AP courses and one honors courses out of seven possible hours, I often find the workload difficult and, at times, overbearing. However, that is to be expected of such rigorous classes."

    "Freshman year through my junior year this school was dedicated to its student and their activities. We had a variety of well-developed programs for every interest imaginable. I have very fond memories of the time spent at this school. AP and honors classes as well respected and are reasonably challenging for those students who wish to reach above and beyond. Challenge students had a wonderful program dedicated to their specific success up until my senior year. Students with disabilities are considered and treated properly with as much care and dedication as that given to normal students. I was, however, disappointed when our superintendent implemented changes to the school that were heavily protested by student, teacher, parents, and many other parts of the community. These changes took away the much needed and appreciated challenge program as well as a few AP courses, decreased the teacher staff, and dramatically increased the class sizes. If it weren't for these changes the past year I would have marked "It's the best" on my overall experience with Cape Central High School."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "As most schools do, we often struggle with peer pressure and acceptance both within social groups and within ourselves. Last year we had a major incident of online bullying where a student created an instagram page for the sole purpose of downgrading others. However, this was handled wonderfully by the administration. After this incident was brought to their attention, our vice principal started a new trend that has now spread throughout the community called #CTkindness. The idea of this tread is to spread kindness throughout our school to negate the harsh words of bullying and self doubt and it has worked tremendously. Our school is also very diverse in both ethnicity and sexual orientation. Our students and faculty are very accepting of others and it is a great environment for student to grow in."

    "Most of the teachers at my school dedicate more time than necessary to their students. I was skeptical to respond "strongly agree" with some of the choices because there are still those teachers (as are in every school) that think of teaching as merely a job and do not care for their students success. However, many teachers at this school care deeply for their students success and take the time to explain their curriculum and life after high school. I have a few teachers who deeply care about my success after high school and spend their time assisting me in applications and offering advice."

    "Most of the teachers are very good and help their students, but not all of the teachers make you feel comfortable to talk to or ask for help when you need it."
