    Amazing little school devoted teachers wonderful parent group of volunteers awesome staff. The attention my children receive here rivals any they would receive at a private school. This school is a gem in Westerville.

    This school does not deserve this rating the teachers were often unfair and mean to the children and in my time there I had to leave due to how bad the school was in the arts math and science.

    Central College is an amazing small school. Everyone knows who my child is and wants her to succeed. The teachers are very good at working with each child at their own level. The classes are small and the parents are very involved.

    This is one of those rare schools that does almost everything right. The principals teachers school secretary and custodian are all very committed to the students. They all have a genuine desire not only to see the students succeed academically as is expected but also to see them happy and enthusiastic about school and learning which is a much more challenging goal. The teachers use very creative cross-grade learning opportunities and give older students the opportunity to mentor younger students to the benefit of all. Outside fieldtrips offer valid learning experiences and increase student excitement about learning. Parental involvement is high and the school PTA is active in providing funds for supplemental learning experiences. Extracurricular opportunities are good considering the school's small size and academic focus. It will be a challenge for the district to continue to provide this high a standard for the middle school experience of these students.
