Open Quote My sons went to Central in the 1990s. I am delighted to see it going strong as always under outstanding leadership. Close Quote

Open Quote I graduated from Cental Sr. High in 2008 and I would like to say that I enjoyed school very much. Like every school there are teachers you like and dislike, but you'll definately find that there are more teachers to like than dislike. The teachers and staff are helpful and easy to speak with.

Although the halls are packed and the five flights of stairs are horrible, there is always something to enjoy; whether it be friends or class.

There was a saying in my year-Central isn't Central without Mr. S (I will not name)-even those who did not know Mr. S agreed. If you went to Central you know who I mean. Close Quote

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.
