Welcome to Central City ValueThe typical day begins with students reporting to their first period classes at 7:30 a.m. Each day, the six periods rotate in a very routine fashion. Instruction in English language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, foreign language, arts, physical education, and various electives takes place on a regular basis during those periods.

After their first period class, students report to their respective homerooms, where advisors take attendance, communicate announcements, and advise students on a number of issues. It is during homeroom that the Pledge of Allegiance is recited each day, led by a student. Additionally, embedded into the daily schedule is a 30 minute "X" period in which students receive tutoring and additional help from teachers they choose.

Each student’s schedule is determined by the scope and sequence of the school, as well as individual requirements that must be met. Students who perform below grade level in English language arts and mathematics can receive supplemental education after school or on Saturdays.

Before school, during lunch, and after school are when clubs and athletic teams meet. Central City offers students opportunities to participate in eight athletic teams that compete in the California Interscholastic Federation City Section.

An active student government, currently running a host of activities during lunches, after school and during special events (e.g., pep rallies), is highly involved within the school. 

Additionally, there are a number of clubs and activities on campus.

With the small size of the campus, a true sense of community exists. Students take obvious pride in their school and often report behavior that is not in the spirit of our values. Collectively, faculty and students maintain a school that is safe and nurturing for academic excellence, consistent with our values.
