Well it's okay. Great schools are not just about parents of wealthy kids hiring tutors which is what Central is about. The parents make the school, for sure not the weak teachers.

Wonderful school, teachers are very cooperative and understanding. Child Study team is fantastic and they have qualified and specialized associates to help. My son who was facing quite some challenges earlier got a completely new, better and happier personality in less than 1 year that we've been here. keep up the good work Central.

My daughter enjoys school. The teachers are very caring, helpful and focused on over all development of the kids. She made good friends at school.

I found this school way to cold and uncaring when it came to my daughter. Instead of taking the time to help her learn, her second grade teacher would make her feel bad about her work. Her teacher also had the nerve to keep saying how this is East Brunswick and they have to uphold a standard, and didn't help my daughter improve her work at all. Spotswood seemed to care a great more, and since moving to Spotswood my daughter's grades have improved drastically.

The teachers & the principal are great! My daughter went from kindergarten to fifth, and now my son attends. I can't say enough great things about this school.

P.T.A. does an outstanding job of providing numerous diverse programs for the children. Playground and lunchroom could be better supervised especially considering that the schoolyard is not fenced in and fronts a very busy road. The School Nurse is abrupt and confrontational with both children and parents.
