Open Quote As a student here, I HATE IT. Teachers will often bully students and will not even teach the material, instead relying on some outside source like Algebra Nation videos to teach them. Furthermore, lunches are disappointing and are similar to the portions at which they serve to KINDERGARTENERS. You would think food served at a middle school would at least make an effort to be more filling and attractive to us but what should really be expected from food served at a school. Bullying is also an issue as kids being picked on constantly happens in front of teachers without reprecussions. If a student is to fight back when punched, this insanely stupid zero tolerance policy pinches the kid who got hit just as bad. Overall hate my experience here and can't wait to be out of it. Maybe high school will actually be a good experience for me. Close Quote

Open Quote Central Middle School, is the WORST school, my son has attended.

The staff is INADEQUATE! Support is INADEQUATE!
The atmosphere of Central Middle School, is that of total CHAOS!

Also, don't waste your time, calling the Brevard County School Board for support either. The response I got, was that of friends, sitting around a card table, sipping tea and chatting it up. There was NO URGENCY and lacked PROFESSIONALISM!

Removing my son, from Central Middle School, was the best decision I ever made!

PS...If I were able to give Central, a lower rating then the "one star", I sure would have! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
