Central High School

Central High School, founded in 1911, is located in Newark, New Jersey: the largest school district in the state and one of the oldest systems in New Jersey, dating back to 1676. After decades of struggle by School Officials, Parents, Staff, Students and the Community the new Central High School finally opened under the leadership of Principal Ras Baraka in August of 2008. This was a fulfillment of the Community’s dreams. The new Central is now a Beacon of Hope for students to achieve academic excellence and compete in a global society under the leadership of Principal Sharnee Brown. We are proud to partner with Central High School to bring the Khem Comic Book Fest to the community.
