I have found the school to be disorganized and chaotic. I have had great difficulty in finding the appropriate resource to help my child obtain information needed for higher education.

As a parent I must say I never seen such disarray,secrecy and disrespect for any child and parent. My son and I have had the roughest time trying to get the school to comply with their own rules that we have virtually given up. For now we have decided to stand and fight how ever we are not sure how this will effect him or me but it is worth it to get a decent education.

I attended Central High School My freshman year (3 years ago). I felt safe at that school because they had metal detecters and that seemed to keep most students out of trouble. But there were alot of students roaming the halls during class time without permission from teachers. But I do have to say that it was a good school because they had alot of activities for students like ROTC, Swimming, Football etc.

My child has been in that school only for 4 months, she kept quiet for a while but then she spoke out and said that some of the students were abusing her in many ways. The teachers should of saw that there was something wrong from the start but they didn't. One of many high school teachers job is to notice and recognize when something is wrong with a student or the atmosphere around them. The teaching is ok, I guess. The principal didn't really care from what i've expirienced and the school halls weren't alway so clean expecially the bath rooms so over my daughter didn't really have a good expirance there!
