There's a good group of teachers that truly care about furthering students' education, along with other wonderful staff. Precautions for covid -19 have also been taken seriously and enforced by most. There's also a library with a large variety of reading material and constant staff there. The gym has recently been redone and is being taken care of.
It was a very average high school experience all around, but at the same time it was just about everything you could hope high school would be. The teachers are slightly above average, and the athletics is nearly unmatched.
The staff is incredibly supportive and encouraging. It is a great community school with spirit and tradition.
I really liked Central's focus on the arts as well as their AP programs. They have lots of AP classes which helped me feel more prepared for college. I would like to see them change the way they tutor students. I feel like it is not as advertised to people who need tutoring help as it should be.
The school was a great and helpful environment. The most of the teachers are very supportive in helping their students success and prepare them for the future. The school has some problems but, most schools do. For the most part it is a very peaceful place.
I liked pretty much everything about central high school. It's really good school, i would recommend it to my friends.
Rest in piece to Emma Jane Walker!! 2000-2016 although I didn’t know you I know from what I’ve heard that you will be greatly missed!! Rest easy!!❤️🙏🏼
Central is a very good school but they only spend the money they make for the dance and cheer team. The bathrooms are nasty and some dont even have doors on them then teachers yell at us for being late because of the lines in the bathroom. The teachers are very good and the food it ok. It's not perfect but it's a good school. The bullying issue is never acknowledged and the counselors are never available
Perhaps the best thing about Central High School was the connections between staff and students; I was able to deeply bond with my teachers, and that made it easier to ask for help and receive advice about continuing my education past high school. I will never forget the kindness they showed me throughout those 4 years.
They have there pics. There is lots of fights that goes on. And it’s a he say she say thing. Nothing really gets better. They allow bulling. Even if u show video. The staff lies. They don’t get work for a child they put out. All n all this is the worst school I ever seen. I’m taking my kid out of it. And I advise everyone to put there child somewhere else other than hear.
Central High School is a very loving and caring high school. I am very grateful to be Class Of 2019 graduate. Teachers want you to succeed and do well in life. I have had many teachers in high school that reach out to you when they know something is wrong. This is for anyone who is planning to go to Central High school, do not be afraid of high school just enjoy all the friendships and football games while you can.
My son is the fourth generation of my family to attend Central. He is an advanced student with a 4.3 GPA in all AP and Honors classes. Before his freshman year, he was approached by STEM Academy and tested and was accepted by the IB Program at West High School. In the end, we chose Central due to the academic programs offered with a great selection of Honors, AP and Dual-Enrollment classes offered. In addition, he was very active in band and Centrals band program has a very long and honored tradition. As he starts to enter his Junior year, we could not have been happier with our choice. Very close community with great community spirit and parental involvement.
Central High School was an average experience for me. I was never academically challenged while in school, but there is a strong faculty dedicated to being present for their students. This school focuses on their issues regarding low graduation rates and poor test scores, but students above proficiency often fall into the cracks.
My experience at central has been enjoyable over the last four years. The atletics have been great, and the school embidies a family like atmosphere.
Diversity. Rich, poor, Asian, African American, Hispanic, etc.... all with strong pride and tradition. This school has a bad reputation but I have one that graduated in 2016 and one will in 2020. I love this community and what it stands for. Deep deep rooted community and very welcoming to all. The teachers have adjusted to the diversity very well.
A lot of the kids here don't really care about grades, but the classes and opportunities here are FANATASTIC. I'm an art major, and when I moved to Tennessee I was happy to see the variety of art classes there are!!! The art teachers work really hard to encourage students as well as critique them to better their students! And they always involve students in art shows and art festivals outside and inside the school. The other teachers here are amazing as well! They always try to connect to their students and always try to get them to participate. It's also really diverse here. Amazing school. The only downside is the food. And the fact that I had to move.
I gave my school 5 stars not because it’s my school but because I feel safe and I have adults who I can now call family. I love them so much and every since I got here life has been real. Ups, down. This school makes you believe there’s hope in your future but the goal is believing in you first!
