Dear Student, Parent (s) and/or Guardian:
Center High School welcomes you back to another academic year. We are excited to continue to build upon the great tradition of academic success that we have established in our high school. CHS is a Gold Star School and National Blue Ribbon nominee that is accredited with distinction. We were named by US News and World Reports as one of America’s top high schools in 2014. Our test scores continue to be on the rise because of the great staff, students, and community that we have at Center High School.
We are fortunate to be in our second year of a One-to-One Initiative that will allow us to build upon Center High School’s rich academic tradition by placing a laptop computer in the hands of every student. Our students now have every technological advantage to compete in today’s technology rich society. We are looking forward to the amazing opportunities this initiative will bring to our students and staff.
In addition to our tradition of academic excellence, we have more than 25 clubs and 14 sports teams. Our clubs and sports have excelled and won multiple championships and awards in recent years. It is Center High School’s belief that students who are involved in school-sponsored activities and athletics achieve better in school and learn skills that will enable them to have future success.
Center High School is devoted to providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them to be college and career ready when they leave us. We believe that all of our students can achieve, and Center High School is dedicated to making that happen. We look forward to you joining us as we embark upon another amazing year at Center High School.


Mr. Joe Gunderson

Did you know that last year several seniors graduated from Center High School with over 36 hours of college credit?

Did you know that by the time the Class of 2015 graduates, Center High School will have exceeded our goal of 70% of CHS Seniors graduating with college credit earned during high school?
Did you know that Center High School offers both Dual Credit courses as well as Advanced Placement classes?
Each Graduating Class of Center High School generally earns an average of $1.15 MILLION in scholarships and grants to attend college. Several times that figure has even gone as high as $1.5 million.
Do you want to make sure your child gets the best education without dipping into college fund savings to send them to private high school?
