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.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

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: Agree


- a
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 character: 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.

SCHOOL LEADER
Teachers are continually given professional development that better prepares them for success in the classroom. The administration is constantly in the classroom to help nurture and develop teachers to be their very best.

Homework is a critical component of the education process to reinforce strategies and standards taught during class time. Many outside resources are used in this process to encourage student exploration of the topic.

Central is definitely one of the best schools in the Chattahoochee Valley. It is located in Russell County which has over 80% poverty. Despite that, it has a rigorous curriculum, high standards, consistently makes AYP, and graduates thrive in college. Several dual enrollment courses are offered by qualified staff. It has an excellent learning environment, is safe, and orderly. Excellent array of extra-curricular offerings and a phenomenal gifted program. It is also the high school of choice for many military families.
