I loved going to Central because it allowed me to come out of my shell and join great organizations, however it is not preparing it's students for college. I graduated in honors and took Pre-AP and AP all four years and when I got to college I felt stupid as if I didn't learn anything. Also I attended a different school in Plano for a week during hurricane Rita and took the same classes that I took at Central and felt like they were speaking a totally different language. I still feel cheated. So if you want your child to be prepared I advise you send them to a different school because the curriculum is very watered down even in honor classes.
