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!

Giant Nation! This is a reminder that we have a CLOSED CAMPUS! This means that students are not allowed to leave the building for ANY reason without permission from parents and administration. Students should obtain permission from the appropriate assistant principal's office.  After verifying absence with parent, student will receive a pass and be asked to sign out.  Students who leave without permission from parent AND administration, and return will not be allowed to re-enter the building.  This is a safety issue for staff and students.  Students who leave without permission will not be able to catch the bus or stay for after school activities.  Please see Mr. Gardner or Mr. Straka with any questions.



Tonight the men’s basketball team hosts Grand Rapids Christian for 3 games starting at 4:15 with freshman, 5:45 for JV and 7:00 Varsity. Ticket sales will begin at 3:15.

Information can be found in the display case outside of the athletic office.
