Central High School has overall been very good. It has grown me to be academically smarter, as well as developed me as a person. The school consists of many clubs and extra curricular activities allowing for people to be apart of a group. Teachers are overall very nice, with exception to some, just like any school. Over the four years being in school, one develops becoming more mature and ready for college and life. The school strives for excellence and has set rules and standards that benefit the academic development of others. Academics are hard but push ones ability to do their work and surpass the adversity will make them more prepared for the future. Its a very hands on school being able to help you with about anything you need with good security and many individuals to build relationships with. I would recommend going to Central High School if you live in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Central high school is a fantastic school. The administrators are kind and caring, they are helpful and genuinely want to see students succeed. The teachers all offer so much support and extra time and resources. In addition, the community is amazing, there were always events going on and everyone was included!
Central was an amazing high school to build my knowledge and prepare me for my future. The teachers dedicate their time to make sure every student does their best and accomplishes anything thrown their way, whether its academically or personally. The sports atmosphere was also a very important part of the experience for me. Central and it's community loves showing support and being there for the Friday night games. As a cheerleader, I was very devoted to showing support to my school and I loved being able to involve the rest of the student body into cheering on central's teams, no matter the sport. I'm glad I was able to spend all 4 years of my high school career at CHS, and I know I will be more than ready for my future because of it!
