This is a great school, depending on you get for a teacher, the math program here is something that needs fixing and they need to fire a few choice teachers in my opinion for sheer laziness. The sports programs are all great too! Another complaint is that the school uses a 1 on 1 program with technology but the Wi-Fi is almost constantly crashing causing teachers to change their lessons on the spot. Also a major drug and alcohol is rooted through out the student body and sports program which no one seems to be fixing. May I recommend a drug an alcohol test every 2 weeks during sporting seasons.

This school likes to push kids through the system without care or concern if the student is actually learning. My son attended there his first year of high school and failed miserably. There was no help from teachers and they took the attitude "it's not my responsibility" when my son was not performing. They allow students to play games on their laptops instead of learning. The counselors do not reply to emails or phone calls and fail to identify problems with students. My son was having problems all year and his so called "counselor" did not even talk with him once all year. Also seems to be a big drug problem out in Salem.

I really like this school! Central has some very neat things to offer. The band program here is awesome. Central has some awesome sports teams such as cross country, volleyball, softball and many other sports. Central just recently built a new athletics stadium, a new tennis court, an 8 lane all weather track, and a new softball field. There are some down sides though, the school is overcrowded and some of the teachers weren't the most helpful and willing to help students. Otherwise, this is a great school!!

This school is horrible. It has more students than it can handle. This causes over crowding and confusion.

I love my school. But, there really is no reward for taking honors or AP classes other than your college transcripts, because there is not GPA balancing-- if you get all A's in disgustingly easy classes, you have a higher GPA than someone who got six A's and one B in a schedule which has three AP classes and two honors classes. But, the quality of education and the teachers are really good.

I have had three children pass through Central. Each received an outstanding education. They were extremely well prepared for college, where they excelled. Teachers at Central were willing to give extra instruction to students who asked for help, even if it went beyond their contracted time. The extra-curricular programs need some help, but I'd much rather see the tax dollars being spent on academics than sports.

my second son is graduating in 05/08 and has also been accepted into Wisc. Madison. Top notch caring teachers and very opportunistic AP program rewards students willing to buy into the program. The academics, athletics, and technical programs are all top notch and merit an excellent rating. Two happy parents.

Westosha Central offers so much for a student to really grow and excell with. I believe it offers some of the best oppurtunties for those students going in any direction. I feel very safe, comfortable, and very happy going to Central.
