Central High School is a high school in Rapid City, South Dakota. The principal is Mike Talley. The high school mascot is the Cobbler. The nickname was changed from "Tigers" to "Cobblers" to honor former coach Euclid Cobb.
Central is the largest high school in South Dakota. Central teams compete in the Greater Dakota Conference, with teams from Spearfish, Sturgis, Rapid City Stevens, and Sioux Falls schools. Central High School moved from its original location south of downtown, to north of downtown and just west of the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in 1978.
