I grew up in a bad neighborhood in MPLS and my parents sent me to private school until we could afford to move to a nice suburb. Worked out well.
I've heard about Central having this stellar record but I don't know why. The neighborhood is a dump over there - mostly - just right around the HS. I'd never send my kid there.
