This school not only has a great curriculum but the school also has a program in place for shaping the students into responsible, well-rounded individuals.

I am a student a central, and i think it is by far the worst school i have ever been to. They never take time to fix a problem, they just send the kid home. Mr. Gray is not a good leader, he makes sure that he is never in danger of making school officals unhappy. Central is a flat-out joke.

The school year is just starting and all is well so far, Mr.Kingston seems to be a strong influence in my students life there and I hope all the others will follow.

I like the principal, but I don't think there is enough one on one which I know is difficult. I do think they take the easy road and are more likely to suspend and give the child a vacation instead of totally confronting the problem. Some of the work, myself as a parent gets confused on and I was a good student...I am speaking as a parent of 6th grade student. Especially math, more vocab than math and I think they do not pay enough attention to writing skills want everything typed and if not likes to take points off. Kind of crazy if ya ask me. No wonder penmanship isn't so good anymore.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
