History[edit]

Westosha Central High School was originally named Salem Central High School. The name was changed to Westosha Central High School in the early 1980s, "Westosha" referring to the fact that the school was west of Kenosha as well as differentiating it from Walter Reuther Central High School, a special curriculum high school in nearby Kenosha. Westosha Central High School is usually referred to as "Central", whereas Walter Reuther Central High School is often called simply "Reuther."
