With an enrollment of over 2,000 students, Springfield Central High School, built in 1986, is the largest high school in Western Massachusetts. Our curriculum is rich with course offerings that will prepare our students to enter college or the work force with the necessary skills to make them competitive. Central's theme as a high school of the performing arts brings with it research-based data that supports students taking art, music and dance courses to enhance their comprehensive education. The high-quality education offered at Central includes Honors and Advanced Placement courses across a broad spectrum of disciplines. In conjunction with the rigorous and comprehensive education that Central provides, the excellent counseling staff creates numerous opportunities for students to visit area colleges, and career development courses allow students to examine the world of work and participate in internships with area businesses.
