The school is great. It offers more amenities than West Jr. High and the student population has less discipline issues. The media center is fairly nice and the school is progressive with technology. The opportunity for a great education is there. I would say the reason the report card scores average is due to the disadvantaged families and poor support at home.

I personally go to this school and wouldn't change my experience for the world. It's very friendly and you never run out of things to do. The teachers try their best and overall are very respectful and understanding. I did have a problem with the staff around December this year, but it was quickly corrected and the Dean of students personally came up to me and appologized; she did the same with two other of my classmates.

i truley don like central.the dean of students treats people differntly and then pretends that she doen't know what you're talking about when you bring up the fact to her. the staff always had to say something about how you dressed or how you talked to your friends and telling you where to hang and where not to hang out at. they dont let you draw on the i.d.s that you bought for a large price of $5. sometimes this school was awesome and a majority of the others were just dredful. if you go here expect headaches back pains unfairness and just plain rudeness.the teachers (not all of them) only talked about how distracting your clothing and jewlry or school but i did love this school and i am going to go here for my 8th grade year :)

I loved the majority of my teachers at Central, but certain staff tended to be rather rude and more worried about appearances than allowing students to express themselves in what they wore. Odd reasons were always given for removing me from class to discuss my 'distracting' clothing. Overall, however, I'd rate this school rather well, if only for the quality of the teachers and curriculum.

As a past student of Central I would just like to say that I loved my experience. I would like to add that the new building is an eye sore compared to the beauty of the old one. Forget green space, you can still play soccer on a black top.
