About Central High School

Central High School, working with community partnerships, will provide students with supported, personalized learning pathways focused on academic, personal, and social growth.

Students who desire to experience a "real world" approach to learning will be offered a blend of innovative and diverse educational opportunities focused on earning the high school diploma and a head start on their post-high school goals.


Education at Central High

Our "traditional" program offers the type of "non-traditional" personalization not available at large high schools. 

Students can take traditional high school classes alongside high-interest, high-relevance courses. 

We work hard to help every student connect with their future after high school right now through our College and Career Center.

And for the "non-traditional" student, we offer multiple credit recovery options, including: Independently Paced classwork; the CapStone program; and Night School.

Central High State Report Card

Central High State Report Card

November 18, 2022

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is required by state statute (Wis. Stat. 115.385) to generate a school report card and district report card for every publicly funded school and district in the state. The report cards are intended to help schools and districts use performance data to celebrate successes and improve their efforts to prepare students for their futures. These public report cards can be found online at: http://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards.

The current school report card is primarily based on last year’s performance during the 2021-22 school year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DPI encourages caution when interpreting scores and ratings on the 2021-22 report cards.

At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area:

  • Achievement - proficiency in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics on the annual state assessments
  • Growth - year-to-year progress in ELA and math achievement
  • Target Group Outcomes - outcomes for students with the lowest test scores: the Target Group.
  • On-Track to Graduation - reliable predictors of how successfully students are progressing toward completing their K-12 education.

The priority area scores are aggregated into an overall accountability score, from 0 to 100. This score is displayed on the front page of the school or district report cards. It is important to note that the 0 to 100 accountability score is not a “percent correct” measurement. Based on its score, a school or district receives one of five rating categories, from Fails to Meet Expectations to Significantly Exceeds Expectations, as well as corresponding one to five stars.
