My school is very diverse which allows both staff and students to learn about others and their cultures, etc. With so many backgrounds, students learn a lot when others bring a mixing pot of information to class with them. Most teachers are focused on getting the most out of their teachings and see improvement in scores and personalities as well. I enjoy going to Central but the security staff should be rehired because they lack in there job, or at least one man does. He's useless. Other than that, the admin is great! The principal is having a hard time enforcing rules on a daily basis and needs to step up his expectations for daily behavior based on what I've seem and heard. Besides that, the school is a very well brought up educational school!!!
Here at Omaha Central High School, you'll find dedicated teachers and thriving students. I've been here for almost two years and I plan on staying. The IB program here is amazing. Perhaps you've heard rumors about this school, but there nothing here that you wouldn't find at any other school. It's a matter of who is willing to put in the effort. I adore Central's diversity, opportunities, and overall appeal. Once an eagle, always an eagle.
I graduated from Central in 2008 with a rounded education that allowed me to complete my bachelor of arts in English in only three years. I was able to opt out of math, science, and political science gen eds in college because Central provided classes that were sometimes even better than the college classes they could offer me. In addition to that Central has one of the most prestigious classical music programs in the state and gave me the opportunity to perform professionally with Mulberry Lane and at the College World Series. Central is the home of anyone who goes there. I often describe the feeling of family at Central as a mini Husker nation. The teachers of this school are some the best I've ever studied under, and as I complete my final semester of graduate school for my Master's degree, I can without a doubt say that Central is the reason I have the friends, world experience, and education I have today.
It's magical! My friends and I joke that there are 'friendly ghosts.' The building is at least 100 years old and magnificent. Academics are superlative, sports are winners, Central is 'different.' Unique, Lots of love in there....
I graduated from Central High last year. Central's AP classes and excellent teachers helped pave the way for me to get to college this year. Central desserves this money because of its academic excellence and its contribution to the community.
Our 2nd child will be graduating this month from Central, and we will dearly miss the school. Both of our children received an excellent education from Central, and our oldest is having a very successful college career thanks to his high school work. However, what we probably value the most about Central, is the character, traditions, and commitment to diversity. No matter what a child dresses like, or what interests they have, they can find their niche at Central. Students are very accepting of each other. Central is the oldest high school in Nebraska, and I feel will continue to have a strong commitment to excellence for years to come.
