My daughter has been attending this school scince the 5th grade and she and me absolutley love it!The teachers are great and are always there when you need them!

There should be separate buses available for these students of such a large age difference. I do not like the fact that my 13yr. old daughter is riding the bus with a high school senior. As far as the cell phones go...it's in every school, everywhere. Kids today are exposed to so much more technology and media than when we parents were at their age. Lets face it, if cell phones, ipods, gameboys, etc., were available to us back then, we would have wanted them too. I don't think that students in grades 5-8 should have a prom. Overall, I think that Man Central is a great school. There does need to be more parent involvement, but it's not the school's fault that we parents do not participate..the opportunity for us to do so is there. So, if we want to see an improvement in this school, let's make it happen.

Too many children attend this school. Grades 5-8 students ride the bus with High School students grades 9-12. The younger children are exposed to more than necessary. The 5th grade students have lunch at 10:30am. This school also has a Prom for 6-8grades these childrens also carry cell phones grades 3-8th.
