Central Catholic High School Reviews

Central Catholic High School is a college prep high school in the city of Portland, Oregon. Offering competitive sports programs, a diverse culture, multiple clubs, Advanced Placement classes and caring teachers/administration. What sets Central Catholic High School apartment from others is their involvement in the community requiring each student to perform service, giving back to society. This year I am going to the Dominican Republic to help empower young girls and this time is applicable to my required service hours for my senior year. I would recommend CCHS to any high school student wanting to be challenged and stretched to be the best person you can be in all areas from academics to sports.

I have had a great experience at Central Catholic High School. From the moment I attended my shadow day prior to attending school there, I felt like I belonged. Everyone there made me feel very welcome and a part of the school culture. After going to school there for a year, I have made many new friends who will be in my life forever. Although the curriculum is difficult, my academic experience has been great, and I have excelled in all of my classes. Since it is considered a college prep school, it is definitely preparing me for college. We have great sports teams - our football team went to the state championship, and our volleyball team did as well. I would highly recommend this high school to anyone.
If your child wants to succeed he/she will there, the teachers are devoted to every kid that passes by them. They will push your kid to the level necessary to go to college or university. The people are nice and kind. The school goes out of their way to make sure your child is safe and successful. The tuition may be a little high but if you are in need or aid you will get it.
