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!
As a freshman at ASU, I do believe Central High School prepared me academically for the college lifestyle. However, the social climate and amount of opportunities was extremely limited. There were little to no resources available to help seniors prepare for college applications, and little guidance for students throughout their high school years. Central is very much a "sports" school. From the moment new freshmen are admitted, they are drilled with this mentality that if their presence is to mean anything, they need to be involved in at least one sport. Many "teachers" were coaches, and they definitely put their coaching above their teaching. There were very few recognitions/awards given out to academically successful students, but countless ones given out for athletic achievements. Overall, I believe Central High School has a lot of work to do as far as creating opportunities for their students, and helping them to become successful after they leave high school.
