Walled Lake Central High School is a high school of the Walled Lake Consolidated Schools, located in Commerce Township, Michigan in Metro Detroit.[3] It serves portions of the township, Wolverine Lake, a small portion of the City of Walled Lake,[4][5] and a small portion of Wixom.[4][6] It was built as Walled Lake High School in 1957, and, a year after its first additions were completed in 1968, took its current name. The original addition was part of a construction project that included construction of Walled Lake Western High School. More additions were completed in 1992 and 2000.
