This school is not a good school. Going to this school has made me not want to be a Christian anymore. This school does not prepare the students for the real world.

I would caution any parent considering this school to ask around town. We had to leave and I have met many people who have left the school due to the principal. His own children are out of control, kick the other students and say inappropriate things to them. Some of the teachers are wonderful examples of Christianity but when the leadership is not, that makes it difficult. The Pastor's wife teaches and she does not update Edline for months or inform the parents even if the grade drops significantly.

This school doesn't prepare children for the REAL world nor public high school. They are very behind in math and science. The staff also doesn't show a "Christ like attitude" nor does the principal. I can very much tell the last submission for a review was submitted by a ''teacher''.

All three of my sons attended CBCS from Kindergarten through 8th grade. All three were well prepared for high school. They passed the FCAT with flying colors and scored high on the SAT. My oldest graduated from High School in the top 25% of his class, my second son will be graduating this year in the top 5% of his class. They learned to be compassionate, strong men of God through the guidance of the teachers at this school.

CBCS is a wonderful school. The teachers are excellent, and loving Christian educators (especially 3rd and 4th). The school has made an affordable Christian education a priority over accreditation, but is continuing to work towards that goal as well. The focus of this school is on the children and their educations, with Christ at the center of it all. We have attended other private schools on the area, and CBCS is the best in so many ways.

My daughter just completed her 4th year at CBCS. While we liked the school in general, we left in large part due to the fact the school is currently unaccredited. The school has been seeking accreditation for some time but has yet to obtain it. I believe the staff genuinely cares about the students, there is considerable parental involvement, but some inconsistencies with feedback from the teachers, and a lack of supervision at times.

I really like the school, but feel like there is not enough supervision when the children are outside.

My daughter has been attending CBCS since first grade (she is now in fifth). It is an excellent private/Christian school.

The academic program is strong for science and social studies. It lacks in writing and math. High level of parent involvement. It offers a good sport program, music, P.E., art, spanish. It is a warm and friendly atmosphere for the children and offers a safe and secure environment.

Administratively efficient and effective. Most subjects are 1-2 grades ahead of public schools in this area. Good school.

I believe overall Central is a good school, it just wasn't right for my son. He is advanced in reading and the school refused to work with him at his individual level or to move him up a grade. I also believe the balance between academic learning and religous studies is off; weighing heavier on the religous studies side.

I have had two children attend this school over the past 10 years, I would not recommend, one child has made the transition to public school and was not ahead of the learning, in fact was behind in many areas, however while attending CBCS maintained an 'A' avg. Also some of the staff does not demonstrate christian like behaivor.
