this school needs help, rules are never folowed and kids are very disrespectful to teachers. fights happen often, but teachers try and do what they can. sometimes it feels like no one really cares

Central has got to be the worst school ever. There is no support from administrators, money for supplies, and to top it off, the kids are HORRIBLE. More time is spent in class managing students than actually teaching the lesson. Students cuss teachers out because their is no respect for authority. School is basically a social gathering. Studies conducted in the golden triangle place Central at the bottom of every list. Glad I found a job else wear, the best of luck to all those who decided to stay after the whole BISD scandal.

The district within itself has become quite a spectacle over the past 2 years, and this school has been at the heart of nearly every reason for it. Central is considered a "second chance school," meaning that there is virtually no rigid disciplinary system in place to govern either the behavior or the academic progress of students. The disciplinary recommendations of teachers are usually undermined to give students an excessive amount of second chances in such a way that violent behavior, truancy, and the level of disrespect has escalated. Especially during the weeks leading up to holidays, the school becomes one giant playground; 1 AP in particular does nearly all jobs you'd expect of the principal (of whom, is rarely involved in or seen by teachers and/or students), so nothing effective gets accomplished, and teachers are left to fend for themselves. It's no surprise that the level of teacher retention has become deplorable because of this lack of administrative support. The vast majority of the students attending read and write well below grade level and have absolutely NO social or interpersonal skills. To parents: West Brook should be your first choice, hands down.

Central has a great band, and the Medical Science Academy is awesome.

During volunteer events, students seemed to rule the school while teachers seemed afraid to discipline.
