as a new student at central i have really enjoyed my teachers and staff and principals and secretary and resource officer they are very excellanta tanner mcmillion i really love central and glad to be there.


Posted July 11, 2009

First of all, Principal Frink has not been at Central in years. There have been two principals since then. Dr. Frederick Hill really did a lot to turn around Central and has improved the standards. He focused on the children more than any previous leader. Test scores have risen, technology implemented and safety issues from the past are no longer an issue. It may be the only middle school in Whiteville, but as a parent I can say I am glad that my children attend Central.

In response to the previous review, it is not the best middle school your child can go to, it is the ONLY public middle school your child can go to. I am a former student, and I experienced firsthand the level of racism and favoritism toward minority children at this school whilst under Principal Frink. The school should be razed to the ground.

I think this is the best middle school your child could go to in whiteville north carolina.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
