Central High School is a fantastic school! Students who attend are given many unique educational opportunities including academic clubs in the subjects of Spanish and History, after-school ACT Prep for Science, Math, and English, and dual enrollment classes offered through Roane State Community College! Central High School also offers a myriad of recreational clubs that catch the interest of a manifold of students including a tabletop RPG club, a sewing club, and a Theater Arts club. On top of all of that, the teachers are warm and welcoming, eager to provide the best education they possibly can. If you're looking for a well-rounded learning experience in a comprehensive and stimulating environment, Central High School is the institution for you!

Central High School is a little school located in Wartburg, Tennessee. The teachers want to see their students succeed, and will go lengths to help them with their future. Although going to Central High is a wonderful learning experience, the lack of diversity is upsetting. It's primarily white, which I think makes the few colored people who attend uncomfortable. My hope is that eventually there will be more diversity in the school, so everyone feels equal to one another. The school is also conservative, making the few liberals feel in the dark. I would love to see different kinds of people. Everyone looks out for each other. We have various clubs; art, history, robotics, and Spanish are all clubs I can vouch for. We only have a few sportsteams, which I would like to see change as well. I'd like to see soccer and swimming. The cafeteria ladies are passionate about what they do, and the food is amazing. The school has lots of potential to grow.
Central High School is a small school in the beautiful city of Wartburg. The teachers are very helpful and want to help you succeed. Dual enrollment is available for students to help better prepare them for college as well. The teachers make sure that academics are kept entertaining for students. I do wish that more clubs and sports were available for students though. Overall this school offers great experiences for all!
