Our daughter is having a great academic, social and extra curricular experience at Central. As her parents, we are pleased with the AP courses, the quality of the teaching and direction she receives. We also have confidence in the administrative team, they run a tight ship and take every opportunity to reiterate what is expected of the students both on campus and when they are out in the community representing the school. Any parent looking for a quality public high school experience for their young person would do well by them to consider Memphis Central.
Challenging and enrichingParent 01/25/2016
Both of our sons graduated from Central, one in 2002, one in 2012. Both earned scholarships to excellent private colleges. Both had excellent teachers, administrators and classmates. It's a school where your child will learn how to think (great AP and honors options) and live in the real world (100% diversity).
