I truly believe the Department of Education needs to come in and do an overhaul of some of the appalling practices done by the administrators in both the middle and high school. They spend more time gossiping with high school friends parents that stir up trouble than on educational purposes. I'm sending my child out next year.

When a snow day presented a scheduling problem. When the principal and other administrators were approached with these concerned I kid you not the response was only whining and excuses. Absolutely unacceptable. I could go on with my concerns but my intention is not to bash this school but to bring light to these problems and hope that someone of authority reads these comments and makes the necessary changes. Unfortunately I do not foresee these things being fixed before my other children get into the middle school which I also don't find to be very good so we chose to move out of the school district

My daughter was recently accepted into the "Georgian Court Humanities Program" an Excellent Opportunity to take College Accredited Courses from 10th - her Senior Year. Fantastic Program for Students headed into Fields relating to Humanities --- as Parents we are Grateful to Our Academic Advisors that made this possible. Central Regional continues to improve --- the more your student stays involved/parent involvement is crucial -- he/she can continue to be motivated towards future success!!

I think Central regional is an excellent school district! My daughter is getting an excellent education at the high school and also did well at the middle school when she was a student there. The principal, vice principals and teachers are extremely devoted to their students and they do not stand for unruly students. This school has come a long way over the past 5-10 years. Also, there are so many programs offered! Everything from the newly implemented Junior ROTC to AP classes, extracurricular activities, lots of sports, SAT boot camp and after school SAT tutoring! If you want to succeed here,you will! If you're lazy and unmotivated, you won't!

I would have to agree with the student who posted below. I am a sophomore in college and I can honestly say that high school certainly prepared me enough. The kids who say differently are the ones who didn't take advantage of the several programs that the school provides. Many students have poor attitudes but the one who are there to learn succeed through college. The teachers and administration are what really hold the school together. There are some lazy teachers, but you could find them in any school district. People seem to overlook the good just to see the bad. Our AP teachers are beyond qualified to be teaching at a high school level, and don't even get me started with the administration. Dr. Corbett was the vice principal of the middle school, then became principal of the high school my sophomore year. He enforces the rules, but even better he connects with the students. He knows everything about the shining pupils who excel in the classroom, to the best of the best in every sport. It is truly amazing. Dr. Trian Parlapanides is the man who is really behind making this school successful. He has done nothing but improve the schools standards and encourage our learning.

Sincerely, Dr. Parlapanides

Central Regional High School does not get enough credit here because of the students who could care less about school. Too many people judge a school based off of the students that do not go to college or drop out. Yes, this school has these type of students, as does just about every other public high school. The AP teachers here are so smart. Each AP teacher I have had cares so much about you, and what you learn here. They want you to push yourself and achieve here. Yes, the workload for the AP courses here are very tough. I've taken English, Physics, Chemistry, and Calculus AP courses, and I learned so much from these teachers. Not to mention, the AP English teacher has a doctoral degree and everything that comes out of her mouth is pure wisdom, and will help you with your writing skills so much. I have a good friend who graduated from here and now goes to Cornell University and aced his first biology oral exam because of what he learned in AP Chemistry. It's amazing what this school gives to the students. I strongly recommend this school to students wanting to work hard in their AP classes, and do not judge this school based off of what others say.

Having gone to this school I can say it has been the best years of my life. I'm about to graduate and am sad to leave Central behind. I could not ask for a better staff of teachers, consolers, or administration for my high school career. I went to a different school my sophomore year and was so happy to transfer back. Central is as good as they come.

This school is horrible. Most of the teachers do not care about the students, only the paycheck they are going to receive. The superintendent just wants to make a name for himself and is trying to turn our middle and high schools into charter schools. The community should have been the ones deciding on whether our schools should be "choice" schools or if uniforms should be implemented, not our wonderful board. It should have been the people's choice. The school also does not ready the students for college at all.

This school is a complete joke. I am about to transfer my child out, which would cost me a quite amount of money. Guidance counselors do not care. Principals act like children. Do NOT bring your child to this school if you plan on it.

The school is a joke. This school will be nothing more than a joke to every body.If your not in sports you are nobody.

Back when I went to Central, it was awful. There were a couple of teachers that were memorable in a good way, but there were many that were memorable in a bad way. And, there was no place for you to be an individual back then. If you weren't a jock, you weren't acceptable. And the school's administration seemed to care little about you.

Central is really making a come back for the lack of money we have but as students we need to pull together and make this school better for us if we don't who will. That's why we have a student leadership summit every year but we need your help to put those ideas into action

Central has a great group of teachers, they really care about the kids. One problem Central has is its budget, which is voted down every year. Central lacks a guys lacrosse team, but other than that our sports teams are above average. Central is a good school and is becoming better with the following years.

We have the most awesome administration. They are all about making our children eco-friendly-citizens and updating our school with solar and wind power, community gardens, and wrangling technology to become one day TRUE paperless.

I am in my senior year and I believe things in the school are looking up. Since my freshmen year there is a lot less fights and bomb threats. Every year the school gets better. We had won our first football game in a year and a half. The wrestling team as of right now is undefeated, 13-0. The school has taught me a lot but I wish they had an SAT or testing class. The extra curriculars are growing every year. The school is with out a doubt going in the right direction. The new superindent, Mr.P, is helping the school in every way he can. I loved all my four years.

Listen, there is no school out there that is perfect. This school is improving with every passing year. My son is in his 2nd year and I have few complaints. Besides one teacher, we have been satisfied. What everyone fails to mention is the budget that gets voted down every year. Every year that it doesn't pass, more programs get cut and our kids pay the price. As for the parental invovement...aside of the few parents that run the PTA, not many are involved. This is so sad considering that it has been proven that parental involvement increases a child's success in school. I am not saying that the school doesn't have a lot of room for improvement but maybe the parents that aren't involved or don't vote for the budget should stop blaming the administration for all of the imperfections. They are trying their best.

I been going here for a year. It is an ok school. There are things I like and dislike. I hate how many kids do drugs and all the fights. I like all the clubs, I am in many of them. I like half of my classes. I don't like the other half because some of the teachers don't teach that well. The food is okay, but I wish it could be better.

I find the school to be an excellent source of academic and athletic enrichment for my children. People must understand school/education is what your child makes of it! There will 'always' be issues in every district and you are 'never' going to please everyone. As adults we need to understand that this concept applies to life in general. Our children love the school and are receiving an excellent education. Academics are outstanding, extracurricular activities are afforded not only for athletes but many are academic and social. Students are encouraged to partcipate.

This school is getting worser by the day. We have drugs in school like people getting high in the bathrooms. you have all these gang related problems in the school. although they have police in the school the students aren't afraid of being arrested. The school isn't really trying to help at all. Well thats what I think. I go to central regional. Im a freshman. Somebody has to do something.

Central Regional High School is getting worse by the year. The Superintendent has no clue what is going on. Where is our weight room? As for the administration at the HS. I am embarassed to have my children attend there. The discipline is inconsistant. There is little school spirit. Our school gets no respect. No wonder.

I graduated from Central in June of 2002. I always had great experiences, and enjoyed my time there. I had great teachers, and I was involved in athletics (Cheerleading and Swimming). It's an important time in your life and I think that my experiences there will help me and stay with me for life.
