The present facility is a multi-building structure accommodating this diverse population. Buildings are differentiated by name and in many cases the discipline taught within. Principals, counselors, and teachers work together as a team to meet the needs of each student. Such a plan provides many of the benefits of a small school while retaining the advantages of a large campus. Central High School is accredited by the Texas Education Agency and the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and is a participating member of College Board.
