    My children have attended this school for 3 yrs now and I LOVE Mr. Verbal and ALL of the staff. They very much care for the education and well being of the children. The private school my kids used to be in did not even come close to the attentiveness that South Central offers. Great school!

    I graduated from South Central 2 years ago. I am now a Sophomore at David Crockett High. (Go pioneers!!) South Central was the best to me! I loved it! Espically Mrs Broyles! She was the best 8th grade teacher there. So where you Mrs. Wright! My 8th grade year there was one of the best years I had for a long time. I wouldn't ever change anything about it. Even thought we had a few problems with our principals. They got it all worked out in the long run. I give a shout out to Mr. Chanley! Your the greatest! I miss each an every single one of you teachers at South Central!

    This seems to be the best school a parent could ask for I went there and so did my brother and my cousins well two of them are still attending the school. I just wanted to let you know that this school if wonderful. It would be even better if you could get Mr. Ayers to become the principle again. Well thank you for your time....
