If you think that this school is great, you're wrong. On occasion, kids might learn something. If you think that teachers are great to EVERYONE, stop talking.

I graduated from CHS in 2000 but have remained in the area and have done volunteer work as an assistant for Central's Japanese program for the past 4 years. The faculty is highly qualified and care very much about the students; however the school is horribly underfunded, resulting in a lack of textbooks ...  Read more

I found Central High to be a very good school compared to the other schools my special needs child has attended. They are on top of the latest medical diagnoises and are great with the students. This school is great!
