The overarching goals of Central City Value High School are best stated by the Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs) that were created by the Central City Value community. These goals clarify how the five values translate to the instructional and curricular focus of Central City Value High School.

Life long…Self-directed Learners who:

  • Take risks for the sake of growth
  • Set, prioritize and pursue goals
  • Think critically and analytically to expand knowledge and solve problems
  • Recognize and utilize resources
  • Demonstrate the skills and knowledge needed in adapting to the ever-changing world of technology
  • Possess a strong academic foundation
  • Strive to enhance and maintain physical, mental and emotional well-being

Effective Communicators who:

  • Exercise efficient and critical listening and reading skills
  • Speak, write and use other forms of expression accurately, effectively and creatively
  • Possess the language skills to interact in a culturally diverse society
  • Foster conflict resolution in a creative, peaceful and dignified manner
  • Promote the idea that school provides an environment to achieve one’s potential

Collaborative Individuals who:

  • Participate effectively in a variety of leadership and supportive roles
  • Recognize, accept and exercise social responsibilities and civic duties
  • Respect and value individuals of different cultures, backgrounds and abilities
  • Maintain a high level of personal and academic integrity
  • Exercise their responsibilities of making sound, ethical and accountable decisions that impact the natural environment and their school community.

The Central City Value High School Student and Parent Handbook includes information on the Central City Value dress code, Pledges, Calendar, Disciplinary Procedures, Attendance Policy, Grading and the Academic Program, and Intervention and Special Education. Parents and guardians should read and understand the handbook and discuss the policies and procedures with their children as appropriate to their ages and development. Questions about information or policies in the handbook should be directed to school administrators, teachers, or the School Site Council.

You may download a full version of the Student and Parent Handbook in English or Español.


One purpose for having a dress code at Central City is to demonstrate unity among our students. Our students are unified in both determination and purpose in pursing the best education possible while minimizing distractions. When a student at Central City puts on the navy blue polo shirt and khaki pants or shorts, he or she is making a statement, in physical terms that he/she is ready to pursue the goal of attaining an exceptional education.
