Nice School, nice kids, nice programs! I highly recommend this school especially for the Arts programs. The pricipal is very experienced and helpful as well as all the teachers have been. This is my daughters 2nd year here and she loves it.

great school, I would recommend this school for the excellent math, science and arts programs offered. I dont understand why East gets the bad rep when Central Dauphin Middle has more problems than anyone. My kids love this school and learned a lot and coming from private school the kids are really friendly and real honest not fake.

This is a horrible school. The teachers spend most of their time trying to correct the children with disciplinary problems that they don't have time to teach the kids that want to learn. The environment is so negative. My daughter will not return next year, she will be going to a private school until we move out of this area.

The teachers at this school, according to my daughter, are very nice. But as far as their attention goes with the students isn't very helpful. Some students at this school are very rude because of the teachers only punishing them and not trying to get involved and help them.

This a terrible school. The teachers and staff don't seemed to be too concerned with making sure the children get the best possible education. They would rather see how many students they can give punishments out to for little frivilous things. The kids in the school are treated like prisoners and not human beings. I will not send my child there again

Terribly disappointing school. My 2 boys will not return next year. I am saddened by the lack of control and lack of interest of the staff. Perhaps if my children had disciplinary problems they would have received the attention they needed. If its possible, I suggest you consider a private or parochial school rather then subjecting your child to what lies past the walls of this school.

No control in this school at all. I am pulling my two daughters at the end of this year. Reminds me of what you think of an inner city school.
