About Our School

dyer central high school front entrance

Since 1908, originally the Dyer Central High School, we have been proudly serving the town of Dyer, Indiana with outstanding public education.  In 1966 Lake Central High School was built in St. John, Indiana and our building was then turned into a middle school and renamed to Kahler.  Since then we have seen some of the best and brightest students come through our doors and graduate on to high school.
