Battle Creek Central is a wonderful school! They have teacher's and administrators who really love what they do! If you try to find trouble here, you will. But that's the same for every school. Battle Creek Central has many wonderful opportunities for everyone!

I am a BCC graduate currently attending the University of Michigan. Battle Creek Central gave me everything i needed to do well here at one of the top universities in the country. I had excellent teachers. Life is what you make of it. If you look for negativity you will find it.

Battle Creek Central is one of the worst schools I have ever laid eyes on. The staff are completely un-involved in the students academic progress, they offer no help to students, the violence in this school is so high that gangs are formed.

I am a former BCC student who graduated in 2006 and I have to say that I genuinely appreciate all of the knowledge and guidance I received from this school. I am currently a senior at Western Michigan University with a 4.0 GPA. I think that BCC played a big part in helping me achieve this and no matter ...  Read more

Oh my were should I start, The pressure our teens have these days are greater then ever, yet our teachers may be book smart.(maybe key word). But they lack the knowledge on how to deal with a student(our kids) that may not be the perfect student. They show little or no respect to these kids and think ...  Read more
