    Central Lake Public Schools Ron Allard sent this to Liberty University I don't expect a reply to this; I think this has been completely and utterly ridiculous! I attended Central Lake Public Schools for 13 years of my life and I earned a High School Diploma from them... The least they can do is get you my transcripts!!!!! Because they refuse I cannot attend your school in order to serve God the way I envisioned!!!! Very very FRUSTRATED!!!

    I believe Central Lake is a good school system. Teachers and staff do care and offer their time whenever needed. Central Lake Schools prepared my child for college. Patental participation and support are always an important factor. Education begins at homme from birth. Any chilld can be successful but it takes an investment-- from the very beginning. Overall I know CL strives to help each student.

    this school is a complete joke anyone who went to this school and had problems that now have children of there own going to this school and complaining about this school are a big part of the problem do not send your child to this school if you want a quality education for your children if you went to this school then you know what im talking about doing the same thing over expecting a different result is insane and that's what these people are doing this school should be shut down permanently

    i feel that this school needs a complete makeover from the top down that's why i left and went to a different school

    i use to be a student there before i moved. i failed every class the teachers never really helped me.. when i moved i was put in algebra.. i failed that because the math i was doing at CL was 2nd-3rd grade math and this is 9th grade math. they worry about sports to much . but i love every one there

    I as a former student would like to add my opinion. I would not trade my education at C.L. for anything. The first thing we need to realize is that our childrens education is not entirley the teachers responsibility. I think with the resources available to smaller districts Central Lake is doing well. If you feel that your children are reading at 6th grade level then yes they do need help so help don't place all the blame on the great teachers we have. As far as sports we must face the fact the a school is a business as well as a place of learning. Athletics give kids a chance to develop leadership skills and generates revenue for the school. This must be done because we all know how much we like to pay taxes to help our kids out. My education at C.L. is top notch!

    I believe that Central Lake is a very good school. They have excellent teachers who devote time into each particular student. My son had some problems in math but their excellent Special Education teachers helped him out and is now getting an 'A' in math. I am a former student of Central Lake and want the same education for my son as I had.

    Central Lake needs to offer more help for the students who need help wtih homework or with any subject. they have funds for sports <which this is good but education important to not the name or who has money> why not tutoring...the students needs more. the schools needs to wise up to some of the issues with teachers too.

    The problem with Central Lake schools as a whole; They are more worried about sports and money then they are about education. Central Lake students are graduation and are reading at a 6th grade level if that and they're math scores are low also. I am a former student with kids in this school.
