I did not grow up in E-Town, however,I had a sister and brother that attended Central. They participated in soccer and cheerleading, as well as other extra cirriculars. Both have continued their education and service. When moving here, we chose to build in the district because of the good scores at the time and prior knowledge of all schools in the area. We have been extremely happy all the way around. They have, in our opinion, done extremely well academically and have excelled in all sports the past year . Testing scores only go so far when rating.
Central Hardin High School is an outstanding school with a faculty that really cares about students. Students appear to be well behaved, very respectful, and orderly each time I have been in the school. My 17 year old still looks froward to going to school each day. Way to go Central and the Hardin County Schools. By far, the best school district near Elizabethtown, KY.
at one time i would say it was a good school, until graduation night.When a senior is not allowed to walk the line,just because his shoes did not suit Mr. Ortiz.This senior has worked hard to get to that point, and then he was denied the right to join his classmates. To me no matter what they wear it is suppose to be their night not Mr. Ortiz's night......
Horrible disorganized, oppressive and doesn't care about there student's
this school is awesome. people need to attend this school if they have the choice and recomendation.
CHHS is a great school. It has the size that enables them to offer more than most schools but the faculty that keeps it feeling small and like a family community.
For the short time I went to this school as a Freshman a year ago, I could tell this is a great school. There were tutor programs for you if you were struggling in a program. The teachers cared and strived to reach out to each individual student so they could succeed. I never feared being at this school or any school in the district. The block scheduling is so much easier on students. They had time to learn, ask questions, and do their class/homework during class. I was failing Algebra 1 mid way through one quarter and in four weeks, I raised my grade 20 points, to get a B on my report card. Great Grading Scale too. Best school district I've ever been in. I know I would've received a great education If I could've stayed here!
Having two daughters who have attended this school, and being an educated parent as well, I feel like I need to comment. The team spirit of CHHS is strong, I don't have any complaints about the activities being presented, and the JROTC program has been wonderful for my daughter. However, the mediocracy with regards to the academics is scary. My daughter has not been pushed, challenged, nor encouraged by this school. She's going to graduate and I truely feel she's not ready for college. I was shocked when my daughters brought home a form in 8th grade asking them (at 13-14 yrs old) to chose the weight of their high school courses depending on whether they will attend college. Why are they even making that an option? CHHS is questionable.
I am proud to teach at a school whose administration and faculty place students' needs above all else. Literacy First, Thoughtful Education, and Smaller Learning Communities programs have honed our faculty's teaching strategies, have enabled our students to reach their academic potential, and have given parents confidence in the education that their children are receiving. Visitors to our school comment on a rigorous curriculum, a talented staff, and an engaged, happy learner.
My kids continue to receive and excellent education. The school is well lead and have good teachers.
Central Hardin is an excellent school from top to bottom. The teachers are caring, the students work hard & want to do well, and the parents are very involved. We are the largest high school in our district and offer something for every type of student. We annually win athletic, academic, & extra-curricular awards, and our seniors earn millions in scholarship offers. There will always be rumors and stereotypes regarding schools, including CHHS, but those adults & teens involved at the school know we have the best school around!
Central Hardin has numerous extracurricular activities and a great administration. The environment is welcoming and the teachers are willing to help the students. My only complaint is a little lack of focus on the part of a few teachers, although most are excellent.
As an educated parent of two CHHS students I can honestly give the school an A rating. The overall academics is challenging and prepares students for college and for life. The principal and staff truly support academics and extra-curricular programs to the fullest and are very open to parent's concerns. Of course there are things that could be improved upon but Im very pleased, as are my children of their experience at Central. Thank you CHHS for offering them the tools that have helped them earn their scholarships.
My son and I had a wonderful experience while he attended Central H.S. He found most of his teachers to be intelligent, they encouraged the students to expand their horizons and find their individual strengths. We were a military family and our experience with his middle and high school were a great experience. He graduate in 2002 and I know he would not change most of his high school experiences.
Central hardin is by far one of the worst schools that i have ever sent one of my children to. As a military family we move alot and i have seen that they do not really care about the childrens education allowing them to skip class, pda in the hallways, and not always providing proper punishment. Do not send your kids here!! send them to trinity or assumption in louisville where they will get a real fine education!
My daughter had a wonderful experience at CHHS.Great education, many activities, never spoke negatively about the staff. All organizations have disgruntled staff.
I currently work in the district and graduated from CHHS several years ago. This past year I worked there and was very disappointed in the way things were handled. As a faculty memeber of this school, I was very disappointed in my Alma Matar. The staff was not welcoming to me or my fellow co-worker that I worked with closely, I was very disappointed in the staff. Most of the schools that I have worked at, teachers are required to be in the hall between class changes to break up any aguments that might lead to a fight. I could walk the halls from one end to the other and not see a teacher one. This school needs major help.
Excellent school with great teachers who know how to do their job. Freindly enviroment and their CATS test scores will be on the rise soon, I guarantee it!
