Central Regional High School has many opportunities for its' students: Humanities Academy Our progressive partnership with Georgian Court University allows qualifying students the ability to graduate high school with up to 30 college credits taught by Georgian Court University Professors at Central Regional High School for free, paid by School Choice funds. JROTC Our Army ROTC program was newly introduced this school year. These students learn leadership, social, team, and discipline skills that enhance their abilities to be successful on standardized tests, prepare for military service or college, but most importantly, in life. Student and Exchange Visitor Program We are excited to announce our recent approval by U.S. Department of Homeland Security to host international students at the Central Regional High School starting this September 2014. $100 Million Business Model The Central Regional School District is building the first public/private business model with over $100 million being invested at Central Regional for a medical clinic/wellness center, indoor ice rink and separate in-door track facility. Sincerely, Dr. Parlapanides

Central regional has excellent teachers, principals and a great curriculum with a wide variety of of opportunities for all types of students. I find it impossible not to succeed at this high school because it is so versatile to students of all backgrounds. My daughter is a sophomore and she has been excelling at central. Before she entered the district, she attended the Berkeley township school district, k-6, which completely failed her. It wasn't until she started the middle school that she began to excel. She went into the 7th grade in basic skill math and language arts classes and is now an Excellent student in all A track classes. The school is also one of the few who still offer AP classes for above average students interested in a college career. They stay open for many after school activities: clubs and sports with late buses for students. It is up to the students to take advantage of the resources available to them and their parents should urge and encourage their kids to excel.

Central Regional High School does not get enough credit here because of the students who could care less about school. Too many people judge a school based off of the students that do not go to college or drop out. Yes, this school has these type of students, as does just about every other public high school. The AP teachers here are so smart. Each AP teacher I have had cares so much about you, and what you learn here. They want you to push yourself and achieve here. Yes, the workload for the AP courses here are very tough. I've taken English, Physics, Chemistry, and Calculus AP courses, and I learned so much from these teachers. Not to mention, the AP English teacher has a doctoral degree and everything that comes out of her mouth is pure wisdom, and will help you with your writing skills so much. I have a good friend who graduated from here and now goes to Cornell University and aced his first biology oral exam because of what he learned in AP Chemistry. It's amazing what this school gives to the students. I strongly recommend this school to students wanting to work hard in their AP classes, and do not judge this school based off of what others say.

Central regional is work in progress. The school is definitely improving every year. I do believe their needs to be a change in teaching staff. Some teachers are amazing while others really don't seem to care.

The teachers and administarators have done nothing but work hard for all the students. I have seen it first hand with two children at different levels.

Having gone to this school I can say it has been the best years of my life. I'm about to graduate and am sad to leave Central behind. I could not ask for a better staff of teachers, consolers, or administration for my high school career. I went to a different school my sophomore year and was so happy to transfer back. Central is as good as they come.

This school is horrible. Most of the teachers do not care about the students, only the paycheck they are going to receive. The superintendent just wants to make a name for himself and is trying to turn our middle and high schools into charter schools. The community should have been the ones deciding on whether our schools should be "choice" schools or if uniforms should be implemented, not our wonderful board. It should have been the people's choice. The school also does not ready the students for college at all.

This is a great school with lots of good things happening! I am proud to send my kids here they are getting a great education!

This school is a complete joke. I am about to transfer my child out, which would cost me a quite amount of money. Guidance counselors do not care. Principals act like children. Do NOT bring your child to this school if you plan on it.

I have two kids in Central Regional High School. The school and superintendent are terrible if my kids could go somewhere else they would ,The teachers don't seem to care about the students. The school is a joke. This school will be nothing more than a joke to every body.If your not in sports you are nobody.

Back when I went to Central, it was awful. There were a couple of teachers that were memorable in a good way, but there were many that were memorable in a bad way. And, there was no place for you to be an individual back then. If you weren't a jock, you weren't acceptable. And the school's administration seemed to care little about you.

We are CR! I love it here at Central. We have so much to offer and are only getting better. :)

Central is really making a come back for the lack of money we have but as students we need to pull together and make this school better for us if we don't who will. That's why we have a student leadership summit every year but we need your help to put those ideas into action
