We love Central City Public Schools. My kids have gotten the help that they have needed to succeed and be ready for college. My children have opened up and found themselves at this great school. I would love to see the much needed updates done to our facilities, as well as adding a bigger better gymnasium. The love and care of the community is second to none and I am so grateful we chose Central City Public Schools for our children. It's always a great day to be a Bison.

What I liked about my high school experience would be that I wouldn't want to go to some other high school. I wouldn't have changed where I went to high school for anything. What I liked about my school was that there is still some freedom without going overboard. It has wonderful teachers that care for the students and want the best for them. We have a high success rate on standardized tests so we have a good academic program. Everyone in our school has a good bond and we are close nit group of friends. We have a lot of people in sports because we are a small school, but that has only made us closer.
The school district is becoming very progressive. Four years ago the school and community were in dire straits for a variety of reasons. With new leadership, we are seeing extremely positive changes. The Career Pathways Initiative is just one of the ideas that will be reality in the near future.
