Central High School Reviews
Rating 3.79 out of 5 769 reviews
My experience in this school was really good. There are a lot of students that want to work hard and be able to become someone in their future so they give it their all in this school. The opportunities that are given are absolutely wonderful. From TASC tutoring, in which you can stay after school to get tutoring about anything, to online applications used, this school prepares you for the future. The counselors are also wonderful. They have the most amazing knowledge and you can talk to them about anything and they can help you with anything. Overall I would really recommend this school to anyone who was applying to a highschool.
I had a a great experience at Central High. It is a very diverse school so anybody can fit. Its a big school so you meet new people everyday, but its not too big that its intimidating. The teachers are cool(some) but they all just want you to do your best. Its a lot of floor though, so be prepared to be climbing stairs.
The school itself is pretty big and intimidating at first, but once you figure out where everything is, it's a cake walk. Most of the teachers are fairly nice and care about the well being of the students. There are many electives and clubs to choose from, and gives students more opportunities to make friends. It's even better when you learn that the school is one of the first school to be integrated, making it a historical building. Students walk the very halls that the Little Rock Nine did.
So far my experience with Central High is amazing. The staff is amazing and the students are amazing also. There are so many after-school activities. And I had the opportunity to be a dancer in one of our musicals. It was one of the best experiences I had. I'm so thrilled that I'm getting the chance to attend this amazing school.
The school has a wide variety of AP Classes. In fact, it has nearly every single available course except a few AP language classes. For a public school, your options arent limited at all.
The teachers were great and were always helpful when I needed any type of help. I’ve never had any issues with any of the staff or students and have had a great experience here. Met a lot of new people as well
Very education oriented school with a good blend of academics and diversity. The teachers truly challenged me in an academic setting in order to help me explore my academic potential.
I’ve liked majority of my teachers and their patience. What I’ve liked the most is the teachers that actually want to see me succeed. What should change is how students who take regular classes are viewed and how much homework teachers give us. The homework can be overwhelming and stressful.
Central is really three schools in one. There are the high achievers who take all AP classes, the low achievers who struggle to graduate, and those in the middle with little mixing between the three. The teachers are either the best or the worst. While the school looks amazing from the front, it is falling apart inside. The roof regularly leaks and the basement floods. The school is also infested with rats and mice. There were fights nearly every week.
I love the diversity of the school, and how our over 2,000 students come from over 20 different nations, speaking over 25 different languages.
The school is very diverse, and the staff and students are very accepting of each other. At this school there’s a place to fit in for everyone.
I absolutely love Central High and I have enjoyed my time there so much. The staff are usually very caring and helpful, and the teachers really want to see their students succeed. I would like to see some change in communication about events, deadlines, and applying for colleges and scholarships.
Coming from middle school, I knew that I was going to attend Central. It was always at the top of the list because my closest friends were attending as well. This is one of the biggest schools and not only that; it’s historical. To b enable to represent Central for its past segregation confrontations is an honor. This school is big on academics and it’s so many students who excel and do well on tests. The teachers aren’t slacking when it comes to teaching and if students are struggling we have a great tutoring program. I love our music and arts side as they create great performances for us students to watch.
Everything is fine, I would personally like to see the food and administration improve but other than that everything is fine.
It is a very diverse school. The quality of teaching is superb, with the exception of a few areas where teachers are sub-par. Sports are decent, and the environment is friendly.
My time at Central High, showed me how diverse our quaint little city was. Families of all different cultural, ethnic, financial, religious backgrounds attended the school. We were challenged to think outside of the bubble we'd created around ourselves, and to challenge the information we consumed regularly. The closer it tied to our viewpoints, the more we should challenge it, to grow. Recently began to go back and reread the materials we'd studied in our history and literature classes, and find that I do really enjoy it now that theres no test over the material haha.
Diversity is found in all disciplines within the walls of Central High. Most obviously, the halls bubble with people from all around the world, nearly 30 countries represented. There is also strong academic diversity. Home to students from all across the city of Little Rock, Central offers a fit for all students. Students have access to nearly every AP class offered and countless electives in subject areas that compliment their interests. The different opportunities students are presented to excel in or explore their interest areas creates a group of different student cultures in the school, which allows many students to find friends of similar minds. Central also shows diversity outside of academics, where sports and clubs are a big part of the Tiger Pride. On Friday nights the football stadium is filled, on Tuesday afternoons the halls with students running across the school to make the Science Club meeting. Central High puts together the most unique experience of all.
