this school does nothing to support the majority of its students. If your child is in the honors program, great, all others fall by the wayside. CB Neugroschl is not a great administrator and to quote one of the teachers, the school runs in spite of her, not because of her. There are some excellent teachers, but the majority are lacking. I would think twice before you send your daughter. When a student asked the guidance counselor what she should look for when visiting colleges, she was told a chabad house. This is not the Yeshiva University standards I grew up with and had when I attended the school. I have no idea what this school is becoming, but it's not good. SKA is a much better option, academically and religiously.

Central is a great school. My daughter is very happy there. The school is not that large so the students get more individualized attention. Once you see the school you will instantly fall in love with it.

This is a school where favoritism is rampant. Money and connections are valued above all else. Education is secondary. While there are several good teachers in the school they are overshadowed by the awful dinosaurs which the school refuses to let go. The biggest problem with the school, however, is its lack of leadership, provided by a principal with no concern for the students' well-being. I would caution any parent that before sending their daughter to this institution.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
