Best school my daughter could have attended within Lawton Public Schools. Staff incredibly professional and friendly and the principal is phenomenal. After reading some of the reviews when first moving to Lawton, OK I wasn't impressed, but my daughter excelled. We had to switch her mid-year after a home purchase and we regret our decision. Central has a supportive principal who you can reach any time and have a conversation, despite the school being big, he knows each and every student. Central Middle School has come a long way, apparently according to the locals. I have nothing but great things to say about it. The academic offers are wide ranged as well as sports. The kids are being held accountable for their action and my child has never felt safer in a school. I wish she could go back. We truly miss Central Middle School, the staff, teachers and Mr Thomas.Thank you for making a positive change and difference.
My son has attended this school for 3 years and I love it! It has amazing organization and structure. I love how the grade levels are not able to interact between class periods. The scheduling is well thought out and the teachers are top class. Although my son was recommended for honors class placement, we did not feel the need to place him in an honors class. He has scored advanced in both reading and math on his end of year state testing all 3 years after receiving instruction in a regular class! The teachers set the standard and the students respond. So proud to have my son be a part of this amazing school!
If you can avoid sending your child here please do so. It's easier to get a security clearance in to get a clear answer from an adult at that school there's three principles three Vice Principals one main principle they speak to you as if they were speaking to a child they're rude. The guidance counselor my daughter had was so rude funny he wasn't rude to my husband who was rude right back to him when my daughter was being bullied. Our daughter was bullied for months. 8 months. We spoke to guidance counselor, principal, etc, teacher's, etc they didn't fix it. We had to call police! The school acted as though it was first time they heard of the bullying, and one principal denied speaking to me! thank God i had my notes. It wasnt till other girl did real harm to property, not a person that she was expelled. This school has good teachers. Too bad it's representatives, principal and vice, counselors are so incompetent.
Although they have controlled a lot of the gang activiity; The bullying is very bad! This school treats every child that walks through the door like a hoodlum and does not take threats seriously. I am very disappointed in this school district. Fort Sill really needs its own school system because there is NO learning happening here!
I am a parent and my sixth grade daughter is not challenged. The adminstration has ignored my request for assistance in this matter. The students do not even have their own school books and they do not have any homework ever! This sets children up for great failure later in life.
