    I used to be a student at this school I graduated at the year of 2007 and it was an honor to be there. I have learned alot this school might have changed for others but it is still the same for me. I moved to Evansville IN on 2007 after my graduation and my fifth grade teacher might still be beautiful. I'm in eighth grade at Plaza Park Middle School im going to graduate here and go to Signature School in the Evansville downtown. I just wanted to say " Thank You" for having me and I miss you all. I hope you find me in your yearbook Manali Prajapati.

    I appreciate Central. I am an out of state parent who came and visited. My son attended for one year. It was hard for him to adjust coming from a lower level area were he had the higher grades. The strictness and disciple helped calm him down to realize people do care. If I had to do it all over again I would of had him in Central sooner. It was big had many activity buildings and academic requirements that made my son have to step up his game. His grade reduced compared to before but he is a better person. He will appreciate it later but I appreciate know. This school made me feel like going back to school. All the awards were very motivating;considering they do not exist in my area. I have visited colleges elementaries and middle schools in many areas I have never seen a lower level school this close to college material.
