Welcome to Little Rock Central High School

Little Rock Central High School

The scene of the 1957 Little Rock Integration Crisis, when nine black students were admitted to a previously racially segregated school during the American Civil Rights Movement, saw Little Rock Central gain international attention. In 1998, 40 years after Earnest Green graduated, the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site was established. The Visitor Center is located across the street from the school and features a film on the Little Rock Integration Crisis, as well as multimedia exhibits on the event as well as desegregation during the 20th century and the American Civil Rights Movement. Head to the Central High Commemorative Garden, located across the street from the Visitor Center, which features nine trees and benches to honour the students and where visitors can relax and reflect on the historic event.
