No no no no no! Central High School taints the title of a school. The students are rude, racist, stuck up, and hateful. I was bullied throughout my entire time attending this pathetic excuse for a school and the school didn't do a darn thing about it! And to people who say this place provides a "quality education", I could've learned as much going to school than not going at all. We were never challenged and teachers would just hand out grades. And the teachers would make you set your standards low. For example, if I wanted to raise my grade to a C to a B, I would ask for tips and the teacher would tell me "We'll you're still passing aren't you?" Way to go to be helpful and encourage your students just to "pass." Here's another thing, if you're an alumni of the school, you'll be guaranteed a spot almost automatically if you apply for a teaching spot. No good qualities just a teaching spot. The food. The heat is way too much during the beginning and end of school. Teachers pick favorites. School will defend teachers and not defend students or parents at all no matter what. If I were to give a few words to describe this school: hate, rude, cliques, racist, narcissistic, uncaring.

I go to this school, its a great place to grow up. The teachers are always very helpful. I'll be the first to admit being in the middle of a corn field isn't a blast, but the seclusion is a good thing for us we don't do drugs, religion is a big thing around here. We are all very helpful towards one another. I would recommend Central to anyone.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
