EC Central High School is a high school in the industrial city of East Chicago, Indiana, United States, located in the Chicago metropolitan area. Its address is 1100 W. Columbus Drive, on the corner of Columbus Drive and Indianapolis Boulevard. The high school opened in 1986 as a result of the merger of East Chicago's two high schools: Roosevelt Roughriders (which was located in the school's present location) and Washington Senators (in the Indiana Harbor side of town). The school's mascot is the EC Cardinal.

When the school first opened there were about 2000 students attending the school. Many teachers from the former high schools came to teach at "Central." Most of the students that attend the school are Hispanic and/or African American.

History of Central High School

The School City of East Chicago had Central High school built in the mid-1980s to replace East Chicago's two aging high schools. The two schools' enrollments had been declining since the 1960s.

Mandatory Uniformity of Colors

All district students, except those with parent or religious waivers and those with too much financial hardship to abide by the rule, are required to abide by a dress code that restricts colors worn by students. Students may wear solid red, white, or navy blue shirts, including collared shirts, T-shirts, blouses, turtlenecks, sweaters, and sweatshirts. Students may wear navy blue bottoms, including trousers, skirts, skorts, culottes, jumpers, and shorts. Students may wear dress or athletic shoes colored navy blue, black, white, or red. Belts and shoelaces must be solid colors. Students may wear outfits from a "nationally recognized youth organization" such as the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts on meeting days.
