My kid was bullied at this school. He would shut down because he wasnt protected and this was written up in a behavior report as "defiance." He was suspended for pushing the girl away because nobody was intervining. I told him he should call home instead of fighting with his hands. The day he called home, staff checked him for bruises and sent him back to class. After I called three times, the principal said the teacher heard the bully threaten to hit him. Both children were told to respect personal space and sent back to class. The teacher said my kid could not call home as I had instructed. I told her I diidnt want to teach him to be sneaky with a phone in his book bag, so a specific time was set to call home if needed. Oddly enough, he never needed to after that. It wasn't until the end of the school year that the bully was finally suspended without my kid having to react. A substitute saw the girl throw dirt in his mouth and kick him, so she was suspended for a half-day. This sort of thing went on all year long, but I trusted teachers to protect him and considered him dramatic. Believe your kid, expecially if they're the easier target for the school to blame.

i am very impressed with Central and its staff...as a grand parent to my kindergarden little girl i feel she is in good hands at the school ...they seem to really care about the students and not just academic's but welfare as well...they seem to take an active role in learning about the child home life which is very important...if a child has problems at home it affects their school work. I am thankful for the staff at Central

This seems to be a school where staff and parents put the children's education first. I like it because it's a 'year round school'. Friendly people.
