Central Hardin is a wonderful institution in many aspects. However, like any other high school, it has it’s downsides. The music/arts programs are suffering and in a financial deficit due to continuously decreasing funding (even with increased pricing in the art field). Instead of providing even funding throughout different funding, the bulk of the funding goes towards the athletic programs. The athletics at Central Hardin are absolutely outstanding - without a doubt! However, the arts are just as important as the athletics and should be treated as such.

Central Hardin develops young people into leaders that are ready for the college world and work field. There were many opportunities such as various AP classes, dual credit courses, and strong sports programs that give Central Hardin graduates every opportunity to be successful when applying for colleges. Central Hardin is also special in the opportunities it provides in connection with Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. There are numerous programs that give juniors and seniors chances to get ahead in their chosen field. Central Hardin provides many clubs that also give each student the chance to learn leadership. Through FFA, Beta Club, Choir, and other choices, there are plenty of leadership roles for students to fulfill and learn from. The faculty really cares about each individual student and the student’s success. They took the time outside of the classroom to invest in each student. These are a few of the reasons why Central Hardin is and excellent high school.
There are so many things to love about Central! The things that’s made my highschool expereince so good were the teachers and administration. Every teacher has lots of different teaching styles to use in class which makes it easier for everyone to learn. The rest of the administration is so helpful with things like college prep, counciling, organization, clubs etc. I wouldn’t have wanted to spend my 4 years anywhere else!
