Central High School, September 2017

Update: Compare to Cleveland, Roosevelt and McKinley high schools. The school had deteriorated further when I checked up on it in August of 2022.

The old Central High School building is beginning to show real signs of structural problems, as the front is beginning to spall off. It will be a true loss when this school is destroyed. See the exterior and interior in 2016 and in March of 2013.

This is what the front steps once looked like, before the horrible vandalism.

Will Central High School ever look like this again? I don’t know.

    This place looks terrible! I have not seen the since attending in 2000. I used to think it looked so grand and majestic. Now it looks rough and creepy!
