The core practices of CFES are Pathway's to College, Mentoring and Leadership through Service. CHS has over 35 students who are currently a part of this program as they continue their education at Central.
Central Readers are Leaders Book ClubCentral Book Clubs are having a great time gathering together to discuss various books. We are fortunate that Ms. Mary Thompson of the Kansas City Public Library is available to join our Book Club activities. The book club has read over eight books and is looking forward to a new school year of reading. By Partnering with Kansas City Public Library, our students have access to library cards and are encouraged to attend events at their local library branch.
ING GrantOver 15 students have registered to participate in the ING Grant program "Segregation Denied". The students will visit three historical sites to understand how desegregation has affected the current educational climate. After the students take their field trips, they will interview graduates from the Central High School class of 1959, who are members of the first fully integrated class after the Brown vs. The Board of Education decision in 1954. We will update the students' journey into the past in order to shape the future.
