Central Senior High has a 150-year-long tradition of excellence. Families prize the high value we place on academics and other learning activities such as orchestra, band, choir and our winning robotics team. Students can explore their interests with debate and speech teams, a thriving drama board and clubs for language and culture, anime, art, politics, biking and more. Central is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school and has offered the Diploma Programme since 1987 and the Middle Years Programme since 2010. These programs, along with Quest and Advanced Placement classes, engage students to develop critical thinking skills. Students can also receive college credit while still in high school through College in the Schools and Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO). Central offers six languages with continuing programs for French and German immersion. College readiness opportunities include Upward Bound, College Possible, AVID, and the African American Male Initiative. Career preparation opportunities include computer science and industrial arts, the construction trades pathway, auto mechanics, broadcast journalism, and audio production.
