Central Park East is a school with a lot of outside programs available which are excellent SAT preparations can begin as early a your freshman year many kis are still adjusting at this time from middle school to high school so not many take advantage of it till their junior year

This school is good academic wise but it is a terrible school. 445 students share one stepwell which is a safety hazard. There is not water heater which means the water is freezing cold. There is no place to put your jackets which means you literally have to carry everything. The staff does not care. My son asked to receive a new Id card because he list his but the guy in charged only told him to look harder. He gets pulled aside every morning asking where it is but the guy refuses to give him one. In the orientation they show the kids the whole school but they show you the middle school side. Every morning it is hard to go to your next class because 445 students share 1 amd 1/2 hallways

In terms of the school community I think its a small school where everyone generally gets along and knows each other by face if not name. The teachers are always available and ready to offer support academically as well as in social aspects. This school more importantly though lack rigorous courses and teachers that are willing to push students to reach new horizons this school although nice isn't the best place for someone who is looking for a challenging enriched academic high school experince sorry, but its the truth.

My child is starting high school this year and is currently making up classes during the summer at the middle school. i will keep my progess updates with you. My first observation of the staff and the school was not good, very unprofessional behavior. They language they allow to go in the middle school, I cam just imagine what the High school is like.
