I am currently a student at central. I have been to 8 different schools since pre-k and i can honestly say I love this school!! Sure its got different groups of poeple and every school does. I have been here since the 8th grade and i am now a junior. So far I have been accepted and I am glad I get to graduate from this high school. Central High School is great to send your children to and they will be accepted maybe not by everyone but there would be someone there to stand by their side and defend them if they need defending. Everyone has a friend here.

I am a 1984 graduate of Central, and so is my oldest son. My youngest is still a student there. Central is in a wonderful area and has awesome teachers and caring Principals. The only problem I have with Central is that they don't do their athletic program justice for the talent they have. I would encourage anyone to try and beat the caliber of students and teachers at Central. All schools have their problems....My child is safe and well taught. He loves it at Central, and so do I.

Anyone new to the area BEWARE! Central is only a great school if you and your parents and their parents, and son on and so forth, have attended the school. Anyone from a northern or western state who doesn't move into the area before kindergarten is doomed. The area that the school is located in is very small, very related to each other, and VERY closeminded. If you have a child who dresses different, speaks different, or is their own person in any other way do not send them here. Take it from a former miserable student of Central. I was made fun of for not having a southern 'twang', for dressing different,and for listening to music that wouldn't get to the region for another 5 years. 'F****** Yankee' was a favorite to call me by all the ignorant people who attended Central.

I am currentley a student at Central School and I have been going to Central for 5 years. I can honestly say that this is the best school I have been too. The teachers are intrested in getting to know you and intrested in you learning. I love this school and will graduate with all of my dearly loved friends! I'm not sure about other parents but I know mine have been involved all the time. This school offers just about every activity you could think of. There are many GREAT clubs to choose from and tons of sports. I love Central and I recommend anyone intrested to check Central out. You won't be sorry@

I attended Central from 1981-1993 when I graduated. I loved Central then and I still do to this day. My 9 year old and 4 year old (pre-school) are now attending. My 9 year old won't even discuss another school. There are great teachers. the principals are student oriented and always have time to discuss issues. There new addition of the vocational classes is a big plus and a big step. I believe anyone looking for a school for there children should visit Central School in Florence, Alabama. They started a pre-school class about 4 years ago and now it is pre-K thru 12th.. I know my kids will be with there friends to the end. Not like city schools where they are divided from school to school..

I am currently a student at Central High School. I know first hand that Central has some of the best teachers, principals, and counselors, but the best thing that Central has is it's students. I have only been going to Central for two years and I have made many new friends along with joining numerous clubs and being elected into office of two different clubs. Overall Central would be the best high school to attend.
