  • I attended Centaurus, graduated 2 years ago, and am now attending university. The courses were good, the material comprehensive. Personally, I didn't feel as though the school was geared particularly towards teaching how to succeed in University. Though he AP and IB programs are definitely a step in this direction. Biggest issue I am working on after graduating from CHS? Writing papers of a length longer than 2 pages.
