Pride and Tradition
Central High School has come a long way since students first walked the halls in 1906. Today, as you make your way through Central, you will see technology-centered learning, hear a wide variety of languages from around the world, and view a wealth of student leadership. The active Alumni Association helps cover the school with beautiful artwork and inspirational quotes. The love the faculty and staff have for the students is obvious in the smiles that light up the hallways.
While school is officially over at 3:30, the students of Central have a tradition of working late into the evening on activities that improve the students themselves, the school, and the Fountain City community. The diversity of Central allows for a variety of active clubs including Key Club, BETA Club, National Honor Society, and STEM for Girls. The Junior ROTC has a long and honorable tradition at Central and enforces character education and student achievement. The beautiful auditorium with professional grade lighting and sound system is the perfect place to showcase the beautifully trained singers and talented actors and actresses of the Bobcat community, while the National Art Honor Society fills the numerous display cases around campus with high level student work.
As you travel throughout the campus, you may also hear the phrase “Bobcat Nation,” especially if you are near the spacious gymnasium or one of our beautiful fields. Student athletes at Central are held to a high standard and expected to perform both athletically and academically. Ballgames are a major community event as the residents of Fountain City stand beside the award winning marching band in filling up the stands and bleachers to cheer on the success of our students.
With so much to offer, Central students of all backgrounds and walks of life have an opportunity to excel, and the historical artifacts decorating the school reminds the current Central family that it is truly a wonderful thing to be a bobcat.
