This is my second year going to this school and I can easily say this is an amazing high school. The teachers are great, and caring. The students are friendly for the most part and it has been just an overall amazing experience. Can't wait for this year to start!

Central High School in the Keller ISD is all smoke and mirrors. They are still under the delusion that Keller is still "one of the best towns in America" to live. That title left years ago! They do not prepare students for college they are just interested in the government $$$. Having transferred from the Chicago area, if I could do it again, Plano ISD would be a much better alternative. Think twice before relocating to this area!

My son will graduate this year. I have nothing but positive experiences with the district overall. It has it's share of troubled students, but I feel the staff does what is in its control to curb issues.(the rest is up to parents.. unfortunately too many parents DO NOT do their job!! -it is not a school districts job to parent YOUR child.) Now, this is in part the reason we have had a pleasant experience- we parent our kids and hold them accountable ,for all their responsibilities.

I am a mother of a student that came from Puerto Rico. The teacher's, the Director all of them helped him a lot to go through the transition, I am so blessed, my son had good grades. Never in Puerto Rico he got the grades that he obtain here in Central High. Again, I'm bessed and my son too, and of course he is very happy!!!

My son just graduated from Central. It was a good 4 years for him. His teachers were hit or miss. Can't have all excellent teachers every class every year. All in all it's a great high school. The staff have done a great job at turning the school around and making it a safe environment for my kids to learn. My youngest will be a junior this year and i know he will do just fine. Only complaint ....needs better cafeteria food.

People can sit here and bash Central High School all they want but the truth is it is a great school full of teachers that helped shape my life. As far as administratively not doing their part-hello parents that's is your responsibility to make sure your child is going to school and not skipping. They are running an entire building while you cannot manage a household. You want stricter rules-but then you say try are power hungry. Be the adult and get your children in check!

Actually, this is not true. Central teachers do all they can. It starts witht he parents at home...discipline your kid therre and ithey want act out at school. Not the teachers responsibility to parent your child. I can't say enough good things about Keller Schools..just they are GREAT and Awesome!

I agree with parent of comment April 22. There is a huge problem with students skipping class, inappropriate conduct and nobody address it. The administration should be walking around and ensuring that the school environment is the best for learning and that the students are following /complying with rules and norms, but they do not. It is run like a college, but they don't teach the students how to act like on a college level; they are too permissive for my taste. Most of the teachers are good and students speak good about them. I am more concern about the atmosphere and the inadequacy of the student's interactions and the way their waste of instructional time due to lack of controls and supervision. The school is too crowded as well . 3,000 students is to many in one school for 9-12th graders to manage effectively.

This school has great teachers and a great atmosphere. My son speaks highly of his teachers and I can see in his work he is learning rapidly.

This school is far too crowded and has a faculty that does not care about discipline. Drug deals & fighting happen during passing period every day. A teacher actually told my daughter in class on 4/20 that the faculty knows a large number of kids come to school high each day, but the administration won't do anything about it. So, the teachers stop caring about it. There are some good teachers who care and challenge students, but then there are teachers who can't be bothered for tutorials and questions to help kids who don't get it. They are "too busy". More like a college than a high school.

I am a senior at this school and love it. It has a great environment and probably some of the best teachers and counselors.

I think Central is an excellent school. My oldest daughter, a senior, has attended Central all 4 years. She has been involved with athletics and many clubs. She loves her teachers and administrators. I do wish there was more help on the counselors part with graduating seniors. My youngest daughter, a freshman, is involed with band and is very happy. We have a new band director this year that all the kids seem to be happy with. Parent involvement is what you put into it. I look forward to 3 more years at Central.

Central is over-crowded even with the new high school, it's schedule is ridiculous, and the lack of communication from the school is a serious problem. I have been attending Central for 3 years and some of the teachers are just not fit for teaching. There are excellent teachers though (Mr. Kyle Huston for Pre-AP geography and AP Human Geography), but most of the teachers are teaching just to meet test standards, but after they make us work our butts off just to do well on the TAKS they slack and turn daily lessons into Movie Time. I am not 5 years old man so I am expecting to actually learn in school.

This school is ridiculously overcrowded and every year i have been there the start times and schedule has changed, making it near to impossible to keep up. Also the fact that as we get more students in the school, the decrease our lunch periods and decrease our passing periods. It doesnt make sense to me. Some of the teachers try as hard as they can with the limited time and resources they have, and other cant be bothered. I was sent no notifications this summer at all. I had no clue the start times had changed to 9 am. I had no clue we were switching back to the 4 a day schedule, but still keep AB classes. i had no idea we needed a new vaccine, and i still have no idea how im supposed to get my schedule by monday. The school needs to work on communication skills.

CHS is like many other schools - you get out what you are willing to put in. It is large, but this is not necessarily a negative. Your student will have to be proactive and stand out to receive individual attention. Most of the teachers my child has had have been great. Hats off to the choral dept. and VOC, this is where my child found her niche that has made her high school experience a rewarding one.
