A year late, But also watched the show with Jamie. What a bunch of backwards-rednecks the administration is. A student is only as smart as the teacher is. What a shame for this school.

I was watching Jamie Oliver this evening and I was truly gobsmacked at the attitude of the cooks at central City Elementary School but more angry at the attitude of the Head teacher when Jamie suggested the children using knifes and forks! A school is supposed to enable children to gain new skills and not to try and stunt their growth! I live in the UK and children are encouraged to develop their social skills from an early age. I can't believe the staff at this school would not try to encourage their children or grandchildren to develop these basic skills and so should encourage the children they work with! As one of the reviewers stated if the cooks wont change , finds sone cooks that are willing to embrace change!!!!!

To the individual who is upset that their comment was erased. Wake up would you! There is no school system that controls what is brought into our schools. Your problem should not be with a cook, a principal, or even the board of education. The problem is due to our government not putting enough money into lunch reimbursements. You need to send your opinions to the feds and support your school system. I am really tired to hear individuals, such as yourself, blast public school when it is the federal governments and state governments that control what we do and how we do things. Get off the band wagon, Jamie provided insight to many in our community about making better choices. Also, you have to realize that it was a reality show and they simply could not produce a program of what really occurs in the public school system. Jamie's mission was to make us aware of our school lunch programs and the processed foods that are flooding the system. You need to take a stand and tell your school system you want a change in the school lunch program. I know, because I was there and it's beyond one person's control. Change only occurs when pressure is applied.

EXCUSE ME....why was MY OPINION taken off.I wont go asy and if you disagree, lets hear it. Again, the ignorance of the schoolboard,principal and LUNCH LADIES, are making the children in the town SICK.For one of the most obese states in the country, you figure you would like to learn how to be healthy what i see instead is laziness and ignorance, start thinking about the generation of children who will be running this country instead of how tired you are of cooking. The lunch ladies looked at the fresh food like Mr. Oliver was trying to poison them unlike the truth which is what they are doing. Go ahead,erase me again BUT i have the right to my opinion and Im NOT GOING AWAY!

I think this school could be a lot better, my child has been there 3 years, the first two years were ok but this year has been awful. I receive no info from the teacher about my child other than a report card. The teacher seems to not know how to control her class, my child is picked on along with other students in the class. I will be looking to move my child to a new scool next scool year.

They have wonder programs at CCE. The have fun nights that are fun but also get the children learning without even realizing it. And they really encourage parent involvement. My son loves the music, art, and gym along with computers and library. It's a great school.

I think that Central Ciry is an excellent school and that my son is excelling there. The staff and teachers work really hard to make sure that all of their students are getting a quality education. They have fun nights that have a learning component to them and are great fun for the kids but also teach them something. It's a great school.

All 3 of my children went to Central City. The whole time Central City school was apart of our everyday life was stressful. I believe it would be more helpful to the parents to receive daily reports about there child and there homework assignments wrote down. The teachers are not very involved or interested in learning to deal with each student in a individual way.

From the administration, teachers, and staff, this school is great. I have one child who went from kindergarten through fifth grade at this school, and I also have a first grader here. Both children got plenty of attention, and when my youngest was struggling, Carole Hensley took the time to discuss the situation with me, and together we decided what needed to be done. He has excelled ever since.

I have a daughter that goes to CCE, just finished kindergarten Ms. Hensley's class. CCE is a wonderful elementary school. There is a lot of schools in Huntington, WV, BUT...CCE is the best. My daughter learned so much from her teachers, in fact when school was out she cried for her teacher. The faculty at this school is excellent, you couldn't ask for a better, safer school for your children to attend.
