The mission of Central High School is to provide all students with educational opportunities through a challenging curriculum which meets the needs of a diverse school community.

Teachers -- Please check dress code, toss vendor food, have students spit out gum, remove hoods, only use earbuds and take up blankets.

EOC testing rosters are displayed in the 3-story atrium and outside the cafeteria. Please check the roster for your testing location next week.

Teachers and students: We will not read morning announcements over the intercom for the next two weeks in order to allow testing to begin as quickly as possible. Announcements will be emailed to teachers and we ask you to say the Pledge of Allegiance and read the announcements to your classes daily. As a reminder, announcements are posted to the school webpage under Latest News.
