Open Quote I attended this school starting in the first grade through graduation in 1958. I had
some great teachers, especially in English, Math, Science, Typing and Social Studies.
The principal, Mr. J.A. Smith, was a firm but friendly person, and all of the
staff at the school were exemplary people in their respective roles.

At this late point in my life, I look back at my years at Central High School
with admiration for all of the staff, and I am thankful that I was able to
attend such a wonderful school where both teachers and staff were dedicated
to the success of all of their students.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
