I think it’s a good school education wise, when it comes to the eye of the public it’s a good school. But the community inside is very toxic.
I absolutely love attending Central. As an 8th grader going into high school I was petrified of what was to come and how my experience would be. However, Central was everything I hoped for in a high school. The teachers care so much about their students and strive to make everyday the best it can be and offer unconditional support to their students. Not to mention our school is one of the most diverse in all of Omaha. I got to learn beside other students who have different perspectives and backgrounds which I believe made me grow as a person. It made be realize the importance of learning and respecting other people views and beliefs. I could not have asked for a better school, Central has made such an impact on my life and I am so grateful for everything I have learned.
The first high school I attended was a wonderful experience, unfortunately the tuition to attend this school became exceedingly difficult for my parents to pay. Through research I found my current school, Central High Scool. I fell in love with central because of the immense diversity, abundance of classes, and endless opportunities. Transferring was a frightening step in my high school career but central has shown me that change does not have to be a terrifying thing, rather something to embrace. If I were to change something for the future students at central it would be changes in the class sizes. Due to this school being so populated, the classes can have an overwhelming number of students. As much as I adore getting to know many of my classmates, I also enjoy the balance of a serene environment. With a smaller number of students in the classroom teachers can put more of their efforts into building individual relationships with students.
going to central high made me realize how great it is to be surrounded by people different then your own culture. great teachers!
Central High School is the most diverse school I have every been to. They care about their students and not how every other school just say they do but they don’t, Central really cares. The counselors and teachers are there for you and even help you when they are not at work.
This school is very culturally diverse including many students from various parts of the world. Having a culturally diverse school helps students feel more welcomed and in my experience I got to share my culture with other students. Central has many great programs like IB that help students get prepared for college or a higher education. The councilors at this school really help their students by offering outside the school programs which gives many students the opportunity to try something different and get a better education. Although the school has many great features I believe more attention should be focused on each individual student to meet their needs.
Central High School has a very positive environment, and you are always encouraged to work to the best of your ability.
The teachers pushed me past my limits and believed in me. The atmosphere was really good and uplifting. The only bad part was my counselor who didn't believe in me or my goals. Overall though I had lots of fun and learned a lot.
It is such a beautiful school. I love all the history in the school and I love that it is downtown. The teachers and staff are all great people. Being able to be an eagle has been the best 4 years of my life.
In my opinion, Central is definitely the best public school in the Omaha Metro Area - possibly in the Midwest. The workload can be pretty heavy if you intend to take AP or IB classes, but it's a great college prep school. The student culture is also very welcoming and anyone can find their place at Central. There are so many opportunities at Central (especially in science) that are not available at many schools. For example, there are multiple research programs in cooperation with Creighton University where students can gain real lab experience - one of these is available only to Central students, the other is available to only Central, North, and South public schools. Our funding makes it feel like our school is a public private, just recently we got a multi-million dollar addition to our building full of music and art rooms.
I got to meet lots of amazing people many new friends. I liked going to different clubs HOSA taught me a lot about the medical field. Education was challenging but definitely prepares students for college.
Central is a very diverse school that has many different clubs and classes to get involved in. My experience was enjoyable and interesting and definitely gives challenges to those who strive for them.
What I like about central is it’s diversity and how many different people you can meet. Also there are many classes with even college leveled education that can be provided
The environment was incredibly diverse with teachers and staff that truly care about the well-being of students. The expectations of us were high, but considering the combination of a great reputation and diversity, it is an education experience that cannot be matched in Nebraska.
Central high school is one of the most diverse schools that where in my area. They helped me as an immigrant to find people i can connect to and help me be the best i could be. Teachers are very supportive in the school, they want to see you succeed and not fail. All my peers were good to me and supportive of my religion and beliefs
Central is a great school.Central takes teaching students seriously and always helps to have students grades’ up.In my Trigonometry class, we have homework almost everyday.Although this is so, our teacher texts us on the Remind app so that we can look over our answers with the key she sends out. Not only this, Central also has scholarships for those who meet their criteria.Such as an $8000 scholarship to students who have a 3.85 or higher GPA and wants to go to college.Central also has a $2000 scholarship to those who have higher than a 3.0 GPA and wants to go to college.There’s also various clubs to attend after school.As long as their a teacher who’s willing to sponsor it, it can be made into a club.Every student in the school is assigned to their own counselor that they can go to if they need help with school or just to discuss your personal problems at home.Central keeps its students updated with scholarships they’ve heard about and encourages people to sign up for them.
My experience at Central High School has been really fascinating. Central is very diverse and you meet new people that are from different cultures everyday.
