School Reviews

The administration does not care about the students learning environment but only the revenue generated by the athletes. Football is the #1 commodity for Central High School and not a student's education. The majority of students graduating who attend college test into remedial or developmental courses and their math and reading skills are not beyond a 10th grade level, if that high.
