Central High School Reviews

Central High School is just a great place to be. All of my children have come through the Central Cluster. I cannot say enough about the fantastic teachers and administrators who prepared my children for life after high school. My two oldest, who are in college, say the AP and advanced classes they took at Central prepared them for the rigor of college. And I cannot say enough about the opportunities for extracurricular activities that have allowed my children to grow as individuals but also opportunities to serve others in our community, which I hope sets a standard for service to others the rest of their life. The sense of family and community here sets us apart from everyone else!

I am a proud parent of two students who graduated with honors from Central High School. They both had great, well rounded academic and extracurricular experiences at Central and currently have highly successful professional careers. I am also a retired Central High teacher and loved the culture and working with many awesome educators throughout my 19-year tenure!
Have always enjoyed the encouraging attitude of administration, teachers, and students!
The students are involved in many activities beyond the classroom and are truly accepting of others.
