    Great fine arts program great teachers excellent community. We'll stay in the district for all of our kids so they can have quality education and teachers that actually care.

    I graduated from this school 4 years ago and I can honestly say that this is a wonderful school to have gone to. The teachers are great and the students are amazing. As far as the comment saying there is not enough Hispanics I understand it is rough being out of place but it is in the country not a urban setting.. In all the school has prepared me for college and I will be graduating this spring.

    Central High School is a diamond in the rough. It's academic rigor is second to none which is one of the main reasons the average ACT score is so high. There is significant student body participation in extracurricular activities...sports as well as fine arts. The stands are always full of students and parents when there is a weekend football or basketball game. There is significant community involvement and support in the school. The school is not very diverse so that is one negative but there are many new homes being built in the district so this should change over the next five years.

    I personally don't like this school because its too boring. I am hispanic and there aren't very many hispanic people in that school. I like the teachers though they help you a lot.
