Great school, Great teachers and Great students. I have learned many things at this school.The facility itself is a little ruff, but that doesn't stop you from getting your education. The administration here is also great! They make sure students are safe and getting the education that they need!

Central High School is always working to improve every aspect of the school. They work to make things fun for the students by providing incentives for attendance, behavior, and academics. Teachers work with the students in any way they can to help them reach their potential. However, it is located in a low income area which results which makes it a title 1 school. This comes with some benefits, but it also means that there is less active parent involvement, including paying school fees. There are a good number of parents who care very much but do not have the time or resources to pour into the school. Overall Central High School is a good school, even though it has a number of areas to improve.
Chattanooga Central High School is a great learning environment, and I am glad I have the opportunity to go here. While the school has its ups and downs, the same can be said of any other high school. The friends that I have found within my peers and advisors have helped make these past four years the most memorable of my life thus far. The faculty is always looking to help students in need, and it is clear that all members of the school want to see students succeed. Some of the people I have met in my time here are the most thoughtful and intelligent individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting, and I am glad to have been one such person to my friends.
