    Central Middle School has its flaws but it has great spirit and has great teachers. It could definitley use improvement in the way it chooses it's teachers. In the 2011-2012 school year I had a science teacher who did not even cover the chapters that were in the curriculum. Central could also improve in the way they spend their money. Thank you Central for teaching me half of what I know now. I am now going onto 8th grade and I am very sad to move on to 9th. I'll miss that place.... I guess

    I went to this school as a student for two years and was completely unsatisfied. Yes Central has amazing spirit cheerleaders and sports but does spirit pay the bills? No it doesn't. At Central they didn't teach me anything. I would turn in complete garbage and get A's. The students are not motivated and do not try. If you student isn't ahead doesn't want to be successful and just wants to live an average joe life then centrals the place for you. But if you have a motivated student who has real potential and has a future as a previous student I'm asking you not to ruin by sending your kid there. Just take a look at the reviews I dare you to find one with correct grammar spelling and punctuation. If you think your kid isn't smart but has a lot of spirit and good looks then Central Middle School is the place for you!

    My daughter's core classes have interesting group projects she can stretch with. The orchestra teachers are keeping the students challenged and happy. The bulk of the teachers are responsive to the students and the parents.

    It has exploratory cycles to enrich childrens imagination and add smoe fun in there. It also has fittness to keep us healthier then if we didn't. Also it has band or orcestra ad thats always a winner becuase learning an instrument is a good way to expand your horizons.
