The school is the worst in the area. Central has a huge drug issue, more so than any school I've ever encountered. The students also skip so often to where it has become normal for 90% skip at least once a semester. Even the staff are terrible. They tend to avoid any problems that surface, including fights. Staff are encouraged to wait until even punching finishes to punish, if even that.
Central is a horrid horrid horrid school.
My daughter entered this school as a senior. We relocate a lot due to work, she has been to 3 different high schools, This was the most horrific school that she ever attended. The lack of leadership in this school is atrocious! Also the lack of respect from other students is disgusting. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE!!!!!
Central is an excellent High School. I choose to send our boys to Central after spending thousands of dollars for their 9 years of Catholic school education. Central offered a diverse population, challenging curriculum and excellent sports opportunities, especially the football program. Here it does not matter whose child you are, all that matters is the effort your child is willing to make. Here your child has the same opportunities to be successful as every other child. Central High School is second to none and head and shoulders above the Coulee Catholic School system. Parents, save your money and send your children to La Crosse Public schools, you will not be disappointed.
Central High Schol is a wonderful school. This school offers many choices for all types of students. Central offers many honnors and AP courses to students, while also offering team taught programs. The foreign language department at central is exceptional, as it offers not only spanish and french, but german and chinese. The athletics are great, and there are at least 20 clubs, so there are many ways students can stay involved at Central. The music program is excellent, with an awesome show choir and band. All three principles at Central are phenominal, and they truly show how much they care about each and every student. The teachers are excellent. There are only a of couple teachers that I would not reccomend. As you can see Central has a lot to offer. It's a great school for all students.
