Central High School is my current high school and I hope to never leave, honestly. I'm in 9th grade and I couldn't have hoped for a more hospitable and caring environment provided by teachers and upperclassmen for my beginning high school experience. It's a great school and I truly feel like all of my teachers care about me individually. Not only are the teachers friendly, but I've made so many new friends in my short time here, it's surprising and wonderful. Looking for a school in St. Joe? Go big blue!

I went here all four years and I loved it. For the fist two years i lived completely across town in walking distance to another high school. I loved the teachers and the way that everyone came together. When the school would get picked on by another for ex another school made shirts calling CHS bad so we made some back. I think the teachers are amazing and they truly cared about the students and their futures.

They are not only focused on my childrens education but also their future by providing the tools and programs to enable my children to succeed after they graduate. They prepare kids for real life.

I was a student of CHS in '07 and I enjoyed it a lot. It offers many activities and subjects for personal development of each individual (I was studying in the US as the exchange student). Warm environment, friendly teachers and funny good students - friends of mine. This school is really great that's why I recommend it to anyone!

I really enjoyed my 4 years at Central HS. There are many enthusiastic teachers that really get involved with the students and care about their success. I was involved in many extracurricular activities, sports, and clubs and I really gained great life skills through these activities - so many clubs are offered that there is something for everyone. I now have my masters degree and I would recommend this school to anyone - I owe much of my success to the experiences gained at Central HS.

There are so many activities and clubs and sports, no matter what you are into, something will appel to you. Everyone at Central is very helpful and friendly, we have so many oppertunities. Us students are very lucky to go to a great school.

I think Central is a great school to go to and the people that are not going to Central are really missing out on all the fun that we have. I am an 11th grader now and the 2 years i have been there has been great. The teachers, counselors, and principals are great and there are a lot activities to get involved in.

I was a ninth grader in this school. I loved it. Everyone got along with everyone. It's so much different than the school I go to know. I would go back to Central and be an Indian anyday. I loved the classes. They were just the right size to get the attention you needed. The teachers were great! They really cared about you and did what they could do to teach you the things you need to know. If you were to move to the greater St. Joseph area I would recommend this school to any other one in St. Joe.
