Open Quote Central is a terrible school with a terrible experience. Students are constantly stressed about maintaining a high GPA and are unable to enjoy the social benefits of other schools. We don't even have our own football team, so going to a football game is a strong no. Honestly, any Central student would be better off at a school like Blackman or Riverdale, because a 3.5 (which you're probably going to get at Central, because the teachers are terrible and the workload is FAR TOO HIGH) with a Central diploma probably won't get you as far as a 4.0 with a Blackman diploma. Let's not forget that my fellow classmates are all awkward, crummy, and annoying, most being religiously biased and Republican. The environment is so negative that at least EVERY student who has managed to grow up in the pre-K styled environment will tell you they've broken down MULTIPLE times due to the high pressure and terrible teaching.

Too long, didn't read?
Central is terrible, the people are awful, and the workload is better. Go somewhere else, I beg of you. 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.
