This school honestly doesn't even deserve a one star. I regret taking my brother there. The staff is so rude. Nothing is ever organized. Students that are related to the owners of the school and the principle get better treatment . I do not recommend this school for anyone... Hopefully when my brother is out the waiting list for another school, I will definitely take him out.

the teachers do not care about students success. I do not recommend anyone to go there. the school just care about collecting money and school supplies from the parents. This school is the worst school i have ever been to. The teachers are lazy, uncaring and don't do a good job of helping out the WHOLE class. The teachers in middle school only care for the kids who are related to the principal. The staff is so rude and doesn't do ANYTHING in the office. I would know that because i have been sent to the office many times for no reason. I even went to the office for something that I would never even think to do. The principal is extremely selfish and only lets the kids he is related to not get in trouble. I would never go back to this school and i don't recommend anyone going to that school too.

Teachers always making jokes during class. Only send people to the offic who are NOT related to the principal and people who are related keep getting "an extra chance". Don't reward when you right things but punish you when you do bad things. Teachers are CLUELESS they never know whats going on. The good thing on this school is there isn't too much bullying. EXEPT if you not Muslim or an Arab.because if you aren't any other school would be better that CA.

I love how the staff are fit to deal with the different variety of students and apply different learning methods to help capture and educate all the students of the classroom. I think it is also important to note that they try to keep a good connection between parent, student and teacher, to help raise a brighter and more successful future for our children.

All GEE schools are great. The teachers are highly motivated and put in many hours beyond the school day in order to provide their students with the best possible education.

I went to Central Academy for 10 years (2008 graduate), and am thankful for the amazing education I received. The teachers' focus on each individual allows them to cater to each student's personal needs. I am now attending the University of Michigan, and I visit my teachers at Central whenever I get the chance. I would highly recommend any parent to allow their child to experience this greatly beneficial one-on-one student-teacher interaction, along with the amazing administration that keeps this school running.

I am a recent graduate from Central Academy. I am proud to say that I was a student there. the interaction with the faculty and students is outstanding. the teachers really care about each and every student, whether struggling or smart. Central Academy has the teacher of the year teaching their students. what more would a parent want for their child? central academy offers dual enrollment classes for college and happily pays the expenses. i am now in Eastern michigan university and i was well prepared for college thanks to central academy.

I was a studnet at Central Academy. When it came to morals and respect it was great. The best part of being in that school was everyone got along. It wasnt where you would have in a public school the popular group verses the geeks. Everyone knew who everyone was. it was great. When Central academy gets into acadmics it isnt as well as it can be. Also i feel that teachers and the principal get too involved with your home and personal life.

I think Central Academy is a very good school for students to go to. I recommend this school for students that want to interact with teachers. In Central Academy teachers try there best to satisfy parents and try to help the students as much as they could. Rather than public schools which have lots of students and teachers do not have much time for students, Central Academy is smaller and gives the chance for teachers to interact with all students.

Its a good school if your more concerned with your childrens saftey/ morals rather than academics. if you are more concerned with academics I would suggest a different school.

My daughter was getting lost in the public school system but is thriving at Central Academy. The small class size and caring teachers seem to be working wonders for her.
