Elkhart Central High School is a very interesting school. It has many different clubs and programs to join to make new friends and memories. One thing I personally liked was the diversity in this school. Everyone is treated equally most of the time. Something I would like to see change is the heater/AC. This is because some classrooms are either too hot or too cold. Anyways, Elkhart Central is a great school to go to!

I love Central! I feel so loved, cared about, and all the teachers put their full belief into everyone. The overall atmosphere is terrific, once you walk into Central, you’ll always want to be a part of the family.
They do offer a lot more educational opportunities for students in different areas of their needs. I came from a Private Christian School as it was a different setting and atmosphere I was still able to maintain my honor classes, pursue my college credits and they offered a few more electives that I enjoyed as well. Education wise it was a good change for me and it helped my parents to save money for college. I am into sports and I was able to take a couple classes to encounter with and was still able to continue to play basketball as well.
