I just feel so lucky that I get to attend Westerville Central. The teachers and staff alone are so friendly, helpful, understanding, and they truly care for their students and want to see them succeed. There are also so many opportunities and resources available in order for students to thrive. I have gained so much knowledge from this high school not just academically, but for real life too. I will carry Westerville Central and all of it's teachings with me for the rest of my life. Go Warhawks!

I’m a sophomore, the teachers and administration are very encouraging and supportive. I like the honors and ap courses which are challenging but I enjoy learning more in-depth material. These classes are interesting and are preparing me for college. Everyone supports our athletes maybe football a little more. We have a good variety of clubs and sports. Great school spirit and pride. Go Warhawks!
My 4 years of attending Westerville central high school was a great experience overall. What I like about this school is that the education here is excellent; it is very diverse; it is the newest high school in Westerville; out of all of the 3 high schools in Westerville, this high school has the most students that attend this school; we have the best football team, because our team had never lost against any of the others schools in Westerville; and lastly, central is the only school that does this event every year called arts alive! What I would like to see change is that they play better songs at prom the way they do at homecoming dances and that some of the teachers there do a better job of teaching and helping their students in certain subjects.
