I go to this school and it is a great school, other than some teachers that are dreaded by most people and parents because they are so mean, but otherwise its a very nice school to go to. The building is clean and well managed by the custodians, students and teachers. The teachers care very much about getting you ready for high school and are very good at it. The sports teams are very good too and we do have a track team even though we don't have a track. Overall the school is very good.

The academic programs are okay I geuss, but I think they should teach more things and go into more technical things, in which the students are intrested in. The music, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities are wonderful. For the level of parent involvement, I personnaly think, and this is from the view of a student, if anything the parents are involving too much and should come when needed not when they just want to. Especially for the camping trips.

Center Drive Schol is a very academically advanced school with no drug or any other problems regarding them. Students in this school are polite and kind. I have been involved in many extra-curricular activites and the track and field program is exeptional. The coaches in that program are exellent and the schools' design itself is exellent. This school has recently been built and is a beautiful school!
