Kalamazoo Central High School

It is our mission to help our students become successful and to assist them in reaching their potential.  Building relationships with our students/families and maintaining sound two-way communication between the home and school are vital to this endeavor.  It is also essential that our parents have easy access to all information that the school offers so that they can make informed educational decisions with their children.

Here you will find essential information for parents and students for the school year.  From this site you will be able to access staff emails, special announcements, guidance information, athletic schedules, and more.  It is my desire to have a safe and productive year where the Kalamazoo Central High School Community works together to achieve greatness.

At Kalamazoo Central we want all of our students to go "PRO" (be Prepared, be Respectful, take Ownership.)   Let's take GIANT steps forward!

Students, we have a new opportunity for those who want to turn Kalamazoo Public Schools into a "Green District."  We are partnering with Consumers Energy and the US Green Building Council to retrofit KPS schools with new, energy-saving technologies to reduce our carbon footprint. Come out and see if we should put solar panels on the roof or upgrade our furnace or lighting. Then make a real difference by presenting your proposals to the Board of Education to make it happen. Meetings will be held after school on Tuesdays in February and March. See Mr. Gottlieb in Room 345 to sign up. No more talk. Do it.

New books just arrived at the library media center!  Many of them are the next book in a series or a sequel—like the 3rd book in the Renegades series by Marissa Meyer and the 3rd book in the Folk of the Air series by Holly Black.
