School Official Point of View

Great dual enrollment program where students can leave high school already a sophomore in college. Athletics is unmatched in the area with facilities, coaching, and participation. Every student having a Chromebook next year will set this school apart from all the rest preparing students for jobs of the future.

Great rapport with Teachers, Administrators and Students. Great atmosphere to work in. Tremendous support from Principals, Staff and parents.

I have so many students who make me proud to be a CHS teacher. They are the kids who I know will make a huge difference in the world. I also am grateful for the many CHS teachers that I had as a a student that influenced me to come back and teach at CHS. Some are still on the faculty, while others have long since retired. These teachers made things that I was not the best at (math!) interesting and broke it down enough that I could understand it.

Teachers work hard. They look for new ways to present information to their students. They are knowledgeable about their subject areas and specialties.

Amount of homework: Just right

Students are given homework as necessary most of the time. Things that would take up valuable class time that can be easily done without a teacher present like looking up definitions for that week's vocabulary review or reading in preparation for a class discussion the next day.

Develops grit: Strongly agree

Our athletes attest to this. They work long, hard hours to try and push to the next level. Academically, there is rarely a day where you won't see multiple students coming in for tutoring, math club, envirothon, Future Problem Solvers, or one of the other clubs focused on getting better in one way or another.


Central High School
Develops respect: Agree

Students come back all the time to thank their teachers for the job they did when they were in high school. They talk about how in hindsight, the reason teacher pushed so hard was because teachers were trying to teach students to respect themselves by doing their best, even on days that it would be easy to phone it in.

Central High School
Develops empathy: Agree

Through initiatives like the XQ, Page One awards, and clubs like Interact, CHS students are given many opportunities to make a difference in their community, and one of the biggest ways that happens is when students work together to make their school better for everyone- not just their little group of friends.

Central High School
Develops honesty: Agree

Students are held accountable for their actions in a way that helps them learn from mistakes. The "book" isn't thrown at a student for a minor mistakes or a one off occurrence. Administrators, teachers, and counselors work to develop an environment of learning not just school related academics, but also about how the world works in general. They encourage students to be the change they want to see in the world.

CHS prepared me for college and my career as a teacher. I am lucky to have had some of the amazing members of the faculty who still teach at CHS. Teachers work hard to help students succeed and grow into real people who thrive in the real world.

Grateful to:
SCHOOL LEADER
The teachers, support staff, and the entire team do a great job being a part of the village to raise the child.
