A Message from the Principal

  • School Principal  

    Dear Central Knight Families,



    As the Principal of Central High School, it is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to a great year at Central High School.  I am thrilled to have students physically back in our classrooms. Our staff eagerly awaits to witness their laughter, energy, and enthusiasm for learning. Since the 2021-2022 school year will have some resemblance of normalcy, our staff looks forward to hosting in-person events including Literacy Nights, Athletic Events, Fall and Spring Parent Teacher Conferences and after-school clubs. With the return of these events, it will be an amazing year!

    I encourage all of our parents to become active members of our Campus. With your support, our staff and students can have amazing events, school supplies, and field trip opportunities.  

    To stay abreast of all that is taking place at Central High School, please be sure to have an updated cell phone number and email address to receive information via our Kinvolved messaging system and also be sure to create and/or update your Skyward Student Account. Also, remember to visit our website and social media platforms regularly for current news and upcoming events.

    I’m honored to serve as the principal of Central High School. It is great to be a part of a community where students, teachers, and parents care for each other and strive to build meaningful relationships that support academic and social-emotional growth. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns 401.456-.111.  I look forward to working with you and assisting each student to meet his or her personal goals.

    Knights!  Let’s make it an awesome year!  Go Knights!   @centralHSpvd #CentKnights 



    Educationally yours,


    Mr. Scott R. Sutherland, Principal
