Central High School is a great high school it has provide a lot of opportunities for me and my family. Such as academic awards, scholarships. and amazing programs to help advance you education learning. I am glad to be graduating from Central High School.
I hated this school because they only care about dress code than you actually learning in school. The administration is very rude , they let people walk around with confederate flags on and trump signs but when we wear a blm shirt we get kicked out of a game ! I’m so glad I’m graduating and I can finally leave this place also they don’t prepare us for college.
It’s a good school, the teachers do their best to make sure everyone is understanding the material being taught to them.
Central High School is an overall decent school. But it contains a lot of issues between races and students seem to be unhappy with the school.
There’s plenty of great teachers and fun experiences. However, there’s also annoying things, such as the grossness of the school itself.
Central High School helped me understand that life isn’t easy and that it is easy to get off task.Central helped me focus on myself more and my life goals instead of worrying about others.I enjoyed Central High School because they prepare you for your future.
Several people have mentioned the dress code, school mirrors, and ignorant things that Central has done. There have been several complaints from parents about certain teachers which don't seem to get fired. One teacher made students carry a toilet seat when they needed to go to the restroom as a "hall pass." That happened at the beginning of the year and was soon stopped due to the complaints of parents. If a fight happens in Central, all students are told to not take footage of it because they do not want the public eye to see them as a shameful school. Overall, the school is more like a prison than a happy learning environment. Wouldn't say it's good.
As a few others have stated, the administration focuses more on collecting hoodies, yelling at some students to take their ear buds off, and ranting about dress code issues they see in almost every frequent announcement RATHER than fixing problems by reasoning with students and parents. For some kids, hoodies and jackets are their only source of warmth. For dress code to continuously stricten when it is unnecessary, the decrease in school spirit has become more understandable. Also be wary that recent incidents during the school year with the "bathroom mirrors being blocked up" have diminished Central's reputation.
The purples have pounded themselves.

Administration cares more about hoodies and jackets rather than the students education. A student could state they have concern and they will not do anything about your concerns. They won’t even take them into consideration. The school is low key racist and they very weird methods. I personally hate central High School. The environment is not one where a student can be successful.
Central High School is a great school no doubt. I have enjoyed my years here so far. Although I am ready to graduate I will miss several people that are apart of the staff. The teachers are great and enjoy their job. They do their best to help us walk across the stage. One thing I would change however is the no ear bud policy in class, this is because music helps me focus and not get distracted in class.
I have had a very positive experience at Central High. The teachers have been wonderful and I feel I have received an excellent education. The one thing I would change is the interaction with administrators and students. It would be wonderful if they were more receptive to students.
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.
I'm a senior at Central High School and I think CHS is a very good public school to attend.Central has very friendly teachers and a friendly principal. What I would like to see change is pretty much the dress code. I wish we didn't have to wear uniforms because I would want to express my own style instead of wearing what everyone else has to wear.
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.
I have had many incidents with other students and occasionally teachers. I know I am not the only student who has had this problem. I have been to administration about these problems but nothing was done. The school is sub-par.
One thing that I would like to see a change in our school is student envolvement with one another. Overall, my past four years at Central High School have been the best.
I have attended this school all four years of my high school career. I don’t think I would choose any other school to attend other than central. If you are a good student and do your work like you’re supposed to, so many opportunities will be given to you. They offer countless clubs and activities to participate in. I was able to build my resume with these opportunities, and would still love to do more.
