The purpose of
Central High School is to provide learning opportunities for the development
of each student to his/her fullest potential. This philosophy is best
expressed by promoting academic achievement and positive self-concepts.
Students are encouraged to develop and utilize their talents and abilities
in an effort to promote their physical and social well being. Students
should develop an appreciation of the democratic ideal with realization
and acceptance of their civic responsibilities. Students are given the
opportunity to accept individual responsibility, develop self-discipline,
and make constructive use of their leisure time.
The curriculum is flexible
and is periodically revised and improved in order to meet the needs and
interests of students. The educational program provides options for students
to find employment, enter the military, pursue post-secondary career and
technical training, or go to college. It is expected that students view
the school as a supportive and well-organized place in which to work and
learn. It is the belief of Central High School that career/technical education
is an integral part of the individual's total education.
It is the general belief
that when opportunities arise, the school, home, and community should
work together in the educational process to create in the student a desire
for learning. Emphasis on the necessity of learning in order to cope with
the diverse and complex problems of daily living is an integral part of
the educational process.
