Welcome to Central High/Tri-C


Principal's Message - Mrs. Helene Cameron

Welcome to our website! Central High School/Tri-C is the largest Options program in the Los Angeles Unified School    District. We provide students with a smaller, more personalized education that focuses on a rigorous, individualized,  standards-based instructional program. We believe that all students have the potential to succeed in the classroom  and in life. To help all of our students reach their potential, we work collaboratively amongst staff, students, and parents to ensure our pupils are provided with instruction that is aligned to current State Standards as well as holding true to our Core Values and Mission. I have an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to contact me any time. Let’s work together for a successful and productive school year!

Parent Involvement Policy

LAUSD is committed to engaging parents in their child’s education. Over 30 years of research confirms the important role of parent involvement in student achievement. Parents are their child’s first and life-long teachers and can influence their child’s education outcomes in powerful and long-lasting ways. The core belief that parents are our partners is the foundation for the District’s overarching policy on parent engagement and is reinforced through its Title I Parent Involvement Policy and school-level parent involvement policies.

Remember to fill out a Lunch Application!


One of the most important actions you can take to help your children and help the educational programs at Central High/Tri-C is to submit an LAUSD Meal Application at the start of school each year. Why is it so important?

For you: Your children may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school. Many people are surprised to learn that they qualify. Remember, federal money is allocated for just this purpose!

For our school: Central High/Tri-C depends on funds provided by the federal "Title I" program, and our Title I funding depends on the percentage of meal applications that qualify. If all Central High/Tri-C families apply, we'll meet the qualification threshold (50%) and receive these funds. If eligible families do not apply, we can miss the threshold and lose funding. More than 50% of Central High/Tri-C students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, but we won't receive the resulting funding unless we can show it.

So, remember to fill out a lunch application! It's easy, fast, and can make a huge difference for your children and their school. Click the link HERE for the Internet version of the lunch application. Thanks!
