School

Central Midlands Senior High School

Central Midlands Senior High School frontYour child has access to innovative, flexible pathways for learning with a wide range of academic and vocational subjects. One major attraction of the school is the small class size. A low student-to-staff ratio ensures plenty of individual attention and assistance, in and out of the classroom.
