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.

Two of our students, Kearney Miller and Chloe Carlson, have been awarded the Consumers Energy Social Justice Youth Award for their work on Climate Change among other issues. The award will be issued by Mayor David Anderson at the City Commission meeting tonight at Kalamazoo City Hall at 7:00 pm.

If you would like to donate blood at our blood drive this Friday (1/24), please pick up or return your forms to Mr. Hafer in room 221 as soon as possible

Are you creative and like to draw, create color schemes or take photos? There are lots of careers for artists in the world! When someone asks, “Where can artists work?” the answer is that they can work EVERYWHERE! Every business needs someone to plan the marketing and communications materials for that business. For example, graphic artists create the colorful brochures, business logos, promotional handouts and websites. To explore this career, ask about the high school EFE class titled Art and Design Skills. See your counselor for more information.


Winter athletes, if your coach has contacted you about academic eligibility, the blue sheets must be completed and turned in to Mr. Patterson by 3:30 this afternoon in order for you to compete this week. Blue sheets are in the box outside of the athletic office door.
