16 Parent Reviews for Central Middle School

Classrooms are over crowded. Teachers and staff struggle to maintain control and use ineffective methods. Struggling students just drop out of sight with little concern for improvement. Counselor does not follow through her job.

It's an okay school, but the teachers are not the best... they don't act like they actually want to teach kids. the students there are not really disciplined, and the teachers act like kids and only really talk or call on the more 'popular' children. library is nice. some teachers are very good and ...  Read more

Central is so awesome! The teachers are great! I enjoy school a lot. The teachers and staff make it fun! (Lunch is way better than any other school's too!)
