  • I'm one of the many people that ride the lightrail and I don't act like that it is their their decision to act like that! They can be arrested for all I care but please don't judge the school over what you've seen on the lightrail, you should do your research on the the other students who do good instead of focusing on the ones that don't. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
    Central Rocks!!!!

  • My impression of Central High School is marred by the 20 or more students who were yelling, cussing, and dressed like gangsters on the light rail, beginning at the Campbell station on Central Avenue around 4pm. The school admitted to me that they are aware of the problem. In the future, I hope the authorities arrest those students who disturb the peace on the light rail. If these students are a reflection of the general school population, you better think twice if your child plans to attend!
