Central High School Reviews
Rating 3.95 out of 5 282 reviews
Central was a good environment to thrive in in academics. From freshman year to senior year, I felt involved and apart of a team all four years. Lots of clubs and sports to be apart of.
I enjoy Central High School the most because of the community. The diversity within Central allows every single student to find their place and feel accepted.
Central High School is an International Baccalaureate school that has great academic achievements. Some teachers are great while others not so much.
Central High School has given me a wonderful experience that I will never forget. Out of everything in that school, the teachers are by far the best. I have not once had a bad teacher throughout my four years going there. I went through the IB program at that school and I got nothing but support from all the educators there. The diversity and the overall atmosphere are wonderful and I always felt safe being there.
I love Central. The students and staff are absolutely incredible and each program blew my expectations out of the water! Each teacher focuses not only on academic achievement but also on individual growth, making each student feel at home in the hallways. The diverse environment is incredibly welcoming- with several ethnicities and religions represented, you are guaranteed to graduate with a broader worldview and better exposure to cultures across the globe. I have encountered incredible individuals, both teachers and students, that have radically changed the way I think and view my society. I would not trade my time at Central for anything and the lessons I have learned here were so much more than just what was taught in the classrooms.
Central has an amazing community, everyone is very friendly and there is a lot of diversity. All the teachers genuinely care about their students and hope to watch them succeed. There's lots of clubs and activities and definitely something for everyone.
Central High School is incredibly diverse. They also put a very heavy emphasis on academics and college readiness through the IB program. They have all of the same clubs and sports of a normal high school, so getting involved is very easy. Even though the sports teams are not the best, it still serves as an amazing way for people to continue to connect in high school.
I really liked the teachers that I had here, but the school culture as a whole was awful. The students didn't seem to care to be there. I would love to see more action taken to help kids see their potential and opportunities for college.
Central high school is a very diverse and academically challenging school. This is what pulled me into transferring here while in middle school. It is a pretty large school with multiple opportunities available to students.
Good IB program and a good place to experience diversity. Just graduated as a part of the IB program and I was very happy with my experience. I feel that attending this school was a great way for me to grow as a person.
I love the diversity that Central offers, but the atmosphere there was too negative for me. The teachers were great and helped the students out as much as possible, without overstepping but the kids there were not disciplined or mature.
Overall Central is a great school with passionate educators and students. It’s academic and arts programs are some of the best. However, the divide between International Baccalaureate (IB) students and non-IB students is a sore spot for the school.
Central is such a wonderful and diverse school! From the day I walked into the oldest high school in Springfield, Missouri, I felt welcomed and valued as a student.
I like how much diversity there is and how many clubs and programs Central offers. Thanks to Central I have been able to discover myself and my interests more, and along the way I've made plenty of friends. Central is such a loving community where the teachers genuinely care about their students and wants to see their students succeed.
This school prides itself on the diversity of its student body, and it has good reason to! I always enjoy meeting people from many different backgrounds, bringing their unique cultures with them through the hallways and commons. Most of the students here are very open-minded, hard working, and always in support of one another. Everybody at the school can find a club, team or group which suits their interests as a result of Central's widely accepting population. I've definitely enjoyed the time which has been spent here so far, and would without a doubt recommend CHS to others.
I felt that it was a very good experience, and that the IB program has prepared me well for college.
I was in the I.b. program that Central offers. It was a great experience to be surrounded by driven students. The architecture of the building alone is beautiful. I loved all of my teachers.
