Central Davidson High is every friendly school with helpful teachers and administrative staff. You, as a student or parent, are a priority to them and they are there to listen and offer assistance the best they can. The music department is amazing and very talented, but the sports department could use some improvement. But all in all, the school is good to its students and offers tremendous opportunities and growth. Go Spartans!

During my 4 years at Central Davidson, there are a LOT of things about the school that I am thankful for. Most of the teachers are proficient in what they teach and deserve respect, there are many different activities and classes for students, like the band, that are excelling in their field, and we have great administration that cares about the individual students and the school. I'm proud to be at a school that does fairly well in most sports, as well. The cross country team has previously had a great record, and both men's and women's soccer teams are doing well. Although I wish we had a better football record, it doesn't stop the large community of Spartans showing up at nearly every game. As for the band, the wind ensemble hasn't gotten anything other than a superior rating at MPA for over a decade! I think largely because of our band directors, who really strives to see the band succeed. Overall, I can't really complain about my experience. Thanks, CDHS.
Central Davidson High School is a great school for education. It is a great environment that promotes a good agenda that encourages students to keep their grades up. I have learned so much from the education here at this school, even more than any other I have ever been at. Every teacher is always very involved in each of the different students and makes sure to focus on them when they do not completely understand something. The janitors always make sure to keep the school in its best shape. The administration is always very involved as far as school spirit and making sure everything flows with excellent rhythm. Central Davidson is overall a great school and I am extremely proud to call it my school.
