I used to go to Keith Valley Middle School, where I was under way too much stress and hated everything and everyone there. So, I moved to Log and I LOVE IT HERE. The people are nice, the teachers are excellent, and they work with you one on one to give you the best education experience. If you have a choice between Hatboro-Horsham and Centennial, choose Centennial. GO LCMS COLONIALS!

I had an awful awful awful experience here. I'm a senior at Tennent now, so looking back it's not that bad. However, people in middle school are CRUEL AND MEAN. A lot of kids that age have terrible filters and will make fun of you all of the time. Tell your kid what you want, but honestly it's a learning experience and they're going to have a terrible time anyways. However, this is just middle school in general. The teachers/staff/faculty are way too strict-some of them are great though but they are all strict to some extent, there weren't optimal club/program activities, the counselors are helpful but there needs to be more. Teachers need to loosen up on 6th graders, the activities are enjoyed by some students but they weren't fun for me. There is little support groups at all, tutorial is unnecessary because teachers get mad at you for doing your homework. The Principal kept changing the rules all of the time. "Team Days" were comprised of watching movies that no one chose and sitting down/shutting up or walking around outside which was okay. It's hard to avoid stalkers and bullies since honor level classes are not prevalent. Teachers go on half hour rants. Overall, really awful.

I've alway been extremely happy with Centennial Schools, in general, and Log College Middle School is no exception! It starts with great leadership, Dr. Bucky Clark is a phenomenal administrator and sets the bar high for his teaching staff. The teachers are second to none, and are extremely dedicated, caring, and knowledgeable. Attending this school more than prepares our children for the next stage in their scholastic career.

I absolytely love this school. It has the best dances and the teachers are always involved. The assistant principal, Mr. Julius is very involved and very kind, but when it is time to be disciplined, he will !

At Log College they recognize that the school owes much of its success to their principal, Dr. Bucky Clark. He is the main cheerleader and supporter. He repeatedly acknowledges his belief that Log has the best staff and student body in Pennsylvania and in the United States and, somewhere along the way, we began to believe it ourselves. His staff started a Blue Ribbon process to express their thanks to him for all he has done for Log since 1971. They were grateful that they could present him with the Pennsylvania Blue Ribbon. The National Blue Ribbon would be even better. I know, because I myself attended Log College!
