This school caters to friends ofthe principals and coaches. The really good kids with talent on sports or other competitive activities get bullied or left behind that's why their are so many bullies in the school. That's also why our teams stink, because they won't fix it.

I love this school!! My daughter is taking Japanese and loves it! There is no other school around doing this. What an opportunity to learn a little about another language and culture while in middle school! If your child is motivated the programs there are abundant!! There is no other public school in Ocean County that has their own Teachers offering tutoring to their students after school. This one does!

I am Currently a 7th grader at CRMS and i really like it. The teachers are all wonderful and actually care about your education. They are also so nice, for the most part. There is a wide variety of after school activities and there are a lot of in school activities too. I have not witnessed any bullying or drugs which surprises me because i have heard many bad things about this school. The school itself is very easy to figure out and new students will not have a problem. The extra rooms like the library, computer lab, etc are all so nice and a great addition to the school. i highly suggest having your kids come to Central Regional Middle School.

Best group of caring teachers around. I am proud to send my kids there. Lets face it, most kids in Middle School hate it, but my kids enjoy CRMS most days!

I went to Central a long time ago and now teach here. I have to say that the staff is more than welcoming, friendly and cooperative. Programs, events and sports keep our students occupied and the administration, guidance and CST really have a passion for what they do. It shows in how much they care for their students that they want to see them succeed and grow. I wouldn't want to be a part of any other school district.

I am currently attending this school. Ugh, it's horrible! People are always finding ways to get in trouble. The gym teachers are terrible harsh , One of the math teachers BARELY speak English properly, let alone can teach math. It is WAY too over-crowded to be a middle school because everyone is getting held back. I'm glad i made it through my first year here and i will not get left behind. No matter how horrible the teachers are and the students. To wrap everything up in a simple sentence or two, This school is Dreadful. With the way my classmates act here, I have no hope for the up and coming generation.

I can't say this is a great school. It is a marginal school at best. With the tax dollars we pay in Berekeley Township; I would hope we could do better. The good teachers are hard to find and the marginal teachers are in abundance! Most classes are so large that the average child gets lost. This school caters to the academically advanced and challenged. Bullying in the hallways between classes is rampant and goes unchecked by the teachers monitoring. Very disappointed as my children came from H&M Potter and BTES which are both great Berkeley elementary schools. The Central Regional School system needs help!

Absolutely devastated that my child has to attend this school. When we first moved to the area, I could not have been happier with the Berkeley Schools (H&M Potter & Berkeley Township Elementary). This year the oldest of my four children entered middle school which, in this area, includes a transfer of school districts to Central Regional. With my son, who was thriving in Berkeley, having some trouble adjusting to the new school, we asked for a meeting to see what could be done. Our meeting seemed to be accepted with utter disinterest by some of the staff. When we asked what could be done to help my child, whom had been in the enrichment program his entire school career and is now struggling in Central, One teacher had the audacity to say, "Well, I have 29 kids in that class, what do you want me to do?" Her attitude seems to resonate throughout the school. There was also an incident of my son being bullied that was apparently never addressed correctly as I had to return to the school on multiple occasions for the issue. Now, unfortunately, my family will be moving because it would be a disservice to my children to send them there. At least they have tenure to protect them.

This schoool is a great school! It has loads of after school activitys and sports (yes, even for the middle schoolers). At first I was nervous for my daughter to go to this school, because i had heard nasty things about it. But we whent to the orientation and I was blown away. My daughter has now attended her first year there and she is so happy with it. And she says she cant wait to go to Central High. Go Eagles!
