    Before starting this school in the 3rd grade my daughter was at Busy Bees Wonderland and was blessed with really great teachers who insured she stayed well above average in all subjects. I was not very fond of having to put her in a public school but I'm GLAD to say that Century Park has impressed me a great deal. From 3rd grade to her current 5th grade her teachers have been very supportive of my daughters education. They really strive to help each student achieve their full potential. Some of the students need to be more focused and develop a sense of who they are and want to become in life but for the most part the teachers the principle and staff are outstanding. Another great reality of this school is the YDP after school program that encourages homework completion themed and seasonal activities and extracurricular activities and sports..... The PUMAS rock!

    My kid loves to go to Century Park. Teaching children to do their best and put learning first. Good communication with parents and extra activities focus on helping others in the community.

    This school is a castrophe. Too many irresponsible staff and aids not doing their job. This school does not accept responsibility when incidents occur nor contact parents whatsoever. Speaking as a parent this is not the best school for special need children.

    Century Park is a school that has truly improved and I know will continue to improve. I have had a child here for the past four years. The current principal seems to have great ideas and deals with discipline with a very caring approach. My child has had excellent teachers she loved Ms. Jones and Ms. Hogans and I feel they really care about their students and want them to succeed. The former principal seemed to be on track with the discipline but many parents complained about his attitude. I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and intend to have my child graduate from Century Park. I love the murals and the overall improved appearance of the school. I think there are some teachers there that do not care but the majority of the teachers work hard and want the children to learn.

    I believe the school is trying to improve. It needs more parent involvement. Parents really need to understand the power they have at schools. When this is learned and the parents rally together more will get done. The principal Mrs. Polk seems for change and for more parent involvement. I think they need more extracurricular activities as well to help with the morale of students. They as with all schools need more one on one time with students. They should not be labeled because some read faster than others. The other child may take in the information slower that's all. Also they are suppose to read to understand not to be the quickest. I'd rather my child understand what they read than reading 500 words per minute. Schools in general need to adopt the old learning program back it worked for me.

    I feel sorry for the teachers who have to deal with these kids every day. At least I can take my kid out of there and put he/she in a better school with higher schools. I blame the parents.

    The current prinicipal is a man and seems to be very intolerant of imappropriate behavior. Kudos to him for trying to get the school together. There are some good teachers who are very concerned with their students. Century Park School is in a nice community but you have to wonder what the problem is with these parents. They won't even try to form a PTA.

    The teachers at this school are all enthusiastic and work very hard to teach the children. The children are expected to work at as high a level as possible and man of them reach the level of expectations that their teachers set for them.

    My daughter's teacher worked on helping the students build confidence. She encouraged them to read a book everyday. Also she introduced them to knew things such as plays museums and learning how to write essays. Mrs. Gidden-Richie is a great teacher.
