Discipline is very out of control and unmonitored. The teachers and administration seem to not find detention or in-school suspension are not useful or mandatory. Student background and prior knowledge is also unmonitored. These things usually help the teacher to accommodate learning and help in teaching ...  Read more

I am a graduate from Central High, I graduate on the honor roll with a child, I had teachers that really showed me they cared and helped me succeed. I had a niece and nephew that graduate from there, honor roll students, thats doing wonderfull. So its basically what your child makes out of it.

Central is the worse school in the whole state of Michigan. There is no leadership or authority for the children to look up too. There are always fights. The kids sit in the hall and gamble, smoke, and simply vandalize the school. I ADVISE everyone to never to the school.

I love the big 'CE' which is what we called it in 1973 when I graduated. I've also had a daughter graduate from Central recently. Anyone can do well, if you apply yourself.

Central is a very good school. Those who attend Detroit Central must be well focused and strong mentally. The surrounding area is highly influential to ones child. Although, if a child could stay focused and determined here that child would be able to encounter any task and succeed anywhere in the world. ...  Read more
