    I disliked pretty much everything about this school. My son was advanced so he was bored. His teacher said she didn't have anything for him to do so he colored every day. On top of that they rarely had assemblies and there wasn't much parent involvement. They make kids hate school. My children didn't even know the principal because she is not involved at all. One of the worst schools in Tracy unified.

    My child is in Mrs. Hoerth's kindergarten classs and I think she is the best teacher. My son is excelling thanks to her. I paid $700 a month to send my son to preschool and he has learned more at Central than his private school. I think this is a great school

    My child Mikaela has attended Central from kindergarten to fifth grade. She has exceled at everthing she has done in the last six years. In my opinion that is due to the caring support of the entire staff. The hard working teachers who have pushed her to be the best she can. A principal who is never to busy to listen and is avaliable. We have cherished our years at Central and will greatly miss it ! (

    This school is not safe for your children. When issues happen on the playground most go unnoticed until it is beyond a point of repair. Teachers genuinely care about their students but the administration needs to work on discipline and hire yard duty that can see past their nose.
