Central High School

Overview

Appleton Central High School was established in 1996 as an alternative to the traditional high school setting.  Appleton Central is a creative educational institution designed to serve students with problems that cannot be dealt with in a traditional school setting or their at-risk programs.  It provides an alternative method of continuing learning in an atmosphere which is sensitive and suited to the development of the intellectual, physical, and social capabilities of our students.  This is accomplished within an educational environment that is healthy, safe, trusting, caring and challenging.

Appleton Central is a creative educational institution designed to serve students in grades 7-12 with problems that cannot be dealt with in a traditional school setting or their at-risk programs.  It provides an alternative method of continuing learning in an atmosphere which is sensitive and suited to the development of the intellectual, physical, and social capabilities of our students.  This is accomplished within an educational environment that is healthy, safe, trusting, caring and challenging.

Components of the Instructional Program

Appleton Central High School, is a safe and nurturing environment which offers academic, physical, and social/emotional health educational opportunities for students in a small school environment with low student to teacher ratio.  Students earn credits in the classroom, utilizing on-line learning and through working and volunteering.  We provide a wellness and nutrition program.  Students and families have the support and guidance from a school social worker and professional counselor.  We work closely with a variety of community agencies to assist our families in overcoming the obstacles that are getting in the way of student success.  

Appleton Central provides opportunities to draw upon the strengths of supportive staff, families, and community organizations while nurturing the most lasting and important protective factor a young person can develop - his or her own motivation.  This school utilizes approaches that attempt to motivate young people to think of their own future, their self worth, and their potential, thus affecting a range of behaviors, not just one type of risk.  Supporting young people in positive ways - through education, adult and community connections, praise, encouragement, and celebration of young people's achievements - is good for young people and the community as a whole.
