14 Parent Reviews for Central High School

This is such a negative school. My daughter struggles in school and the teachers don't notice or care. I know they have too many students but a bit of support would go a long way. Because my daughter struggles teachers say mean & negative things to her. She is harassed by many of her teachers who call ...  Read more

I feel this school needs to be more positive and supportive of students needs. They have no positive incentives, nothing for students to be excited about or look forward to. Maybe a jeans day on Fridays for good behavior, attendance etc. would help, anything positive would help! Some teachers are very ...  Read more

Went there, and LOVED it! GO pounders! YES, there were "bad eggs" in the school but they were disciplined and the teachers are very dedicated

Great students, teachers, and principal. This is a very safe and highly academic place for my child to attend school. I highly recommend...I removed my child from private school because this school has rigorus AP courses and strict discipline plans.

We have two sons attending central. We are very pleased with the staff, quality of education, and support from the administration. In the past two years, our principal has turned this school around with tighter control over discipline and by utiliizing a dress code. Central is off of the 'no child left ...  Read more
