    Center City PCS was not the school for my child. They didn't seem to have much patience with my child who was diagnosed with ADHD. I feel they could have worked with him on different levels and they didn't. My child was very discouraged and lost the willing to achieve and learn attitude.

    The Trinidad Campus of Center City is an excellent learning environment. The faculty are caring and nurturing. They work with students where they are and help them to find success. Students really grow at this campus.
