Welcome to Central High School! It’s an honor to welcome our new and returning students as we look forward to another exciting and productive school year.  Our administration and staff are dedicated to providing a quality and rigorous education to ensure that each child succeeds and are prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century.  Central High School provides a wealth of advanced, remedial and relevant courses that are designed to allow each student to prosper within a diverse learning climate.  It is our goal to provide a safe and nurturing education environment so all students have the opportunity to succeed and reach their potential.  Of course, being a parent is the most important role anyone can have.  You are your child’s first and most crucial teacher. If education is a priority for you, so it will be for your child.

The Central High School staff is committed to our students’ academic achievement. We will continue to focus on working together to pursue and support student learning both in and out of the classroom.  Central High School also offers a wealth of extra-curricular programs and activities for your child to participate in.  It is important for me to be a visible presence in the school building and to be an advocate for students, staff and parents. I believe in a disciplined learning environment that is firm, fair and caring. Children are at their best when expectations for learning and behavior are clear and consistent.

We are looking forward to a positive school year.  With our outstanding staff, we will continue with the Central High School tradition of academic and extra-curricular excellence.  As always, we will need your help to continue this tradition.  Parent participation is extremely important; please take the time to get involved in the many wonderful things that happen at Central High School every day.  As your Principal, I am here to serve the students and community of Central High School. Please feel free to contact the administration or teaching staff at anytime during the school year.  On behalf of all of us at Central I wish you and your child all the best this school year.


Mike Talley, CHS Principal
