'''Drew Central High School''' is a [[Public school|public]] [[secondary school]] in Monticello, [[USA|Arkansas]]. It is part of Drew Central School District, which was established in 1927 and covers 570 square miles, all in rural Drew County, from where all the students[[student]]s are bussed into Monticello. Monticello itself is not in Drew Central School District, but forms a district of its own, Monticello School District.<ref>History of the Drew Central Schools.</ref> This means that the [[school]] is in the unusual position of being located outside the boundaries of the school district it serves.
The [[Principal]] of the High School is Ms. Melissia Vincent. The district's other schools are the [[Elementary School]] and the [[Intermediate school|Middle School]]. All three share the same campus in Monticello.
At the High School, there are some 400 students in grades 7 to 12. The average class size is less than 25.<ref>Drew Central Quick Facts.</ref>
Disciplinary programs for student misconduct at Drew Central are [[Detention]] Hall, in-school suspension, and out-of-school suspension, depending on the seriousness of the infraction. In extreme cases a student may be recommended for expulsion from the school.
Drew Central High also offers a [[School corporal punishment|corporal punishment]] program, under which a student chooses a [[paddling]] (swats) instead of attending Detention Hall. Students wishing to receive swats must report to the [[office]] at the beginning of their lunch period on the day they are scheduled to attend Detention Hall. After being spanked in the office they are then free to join the normal school lunch.<ref name="handbook"/>
In the case of [[tardy|tardies]], the corporal punishment option is available only after the third tardy in each nine-week grading period. After a sixth tardy the student is assigned to In-School Suspension.
The school administration may also decide to administer a paddling in other cases, particularly for fighting, except where parents have signed a form requesting exemption from corporal punishment. In the latter case, alternative discipline will be assigned, which may include suspension.<ref name="handbook">Drew Central High School Student Handbook.</ref>
