CCHS has something for everyone. It helps students who struggle and prepares students who want to go to Ivy League schools! The building is new and beautiful, the football team is awesome, so are the other spots! Lots and lot of clubs. Very diverse- but don’t come here if you don’t want to be challenged in your cultural views! This is not cushy place- students come from all different socio economic backgrounds and you won’t be sheltered here from really life issues. Great preparation for the real world and teaches you true empathy . Teachers and staff who care about all students !

This school is located in the heart of Athens Ga and has lots of resources from the University of GA. The school building is modern and accommodates the students well but has no lockers at all which is kind of difficult bc the students must take all of their books to every class and not all texts are on computer. Overall we have been very happy with the education. The journalism program, Odyssey, is top notch, the adviser is fully invested in his students and the program is award winning!
At the time that I was a student, Central had a number of dedicated passionate teachers who cared about their students' success. When I looked for opportunities, I always found them. And now, they're remodeled so the facilities are brand new!
