This school is the worst school by far my child has attended. The only good thing is the ROTC program. If your child has special needs especially Asperger's, ADHD, Sensory, ETC. Then look some where else. They don't care nor follow the students IEP. They escalate the student rather than find a solution. They don't advocate for the child. They don't find solutions. The assistant principal for your child is never on campus nor the ESE dept. I have had to call the school board, CARD (center for Autism and related disorders), I have consulted a lawyer and have called, emailed and shown up at the school. this is so sad because the person who loses in all of this is my child. I find that most situations could be avoided, teachers are not educated about special needs therefore they make matters worse. They tell your child they can do something then write them up for that same thing. Again, if you have a child with special needs!!!!! I urge you NOT TO ATTEND THIS SCHOOL. All you will find here is frustration, stress, sadness, and a teenager depressed with low confidence about their capabilities that were not there before they arrived at this school!!!!!!

I'm a student at this school and I don't like it. I just came here as a new student from Virginia and I'm a rising senior. The student population to me I think, is just rude and unfriendly, it seems like you have to go out of your way just to get someone to become your friend. The school only cares about their ROTC program and nothing else, like Acting, Art, Band, Chorus, etc...the administration and teachers need to start encouraging students to do well...have regular meetings with the students to encourage them and make sure everybody is doing well...they need to step up their game! Education in the state of Florida is much different and easier than it is up north...this is why florida is low in test scores, etc.

There is a bullying problem at this school. Bullying distracts from learning. While the official stance is that bullying is not tolerated, the reality is that bullies are not dealt with, and the children who are bullied are scolded for allowing it to get to them. There are a huge number of students who are Baker Acted from this school, while students who are really in need of help go without it.

Seems relatively organized so far. Concerned that there may not be enough books for students.

New to the area new to the school district. Driving farther than the nearest high school due to some recent redistricting. The staff has been very welcoming and I have been pleasantly surprised by the manners of the student body. For such a large school the staff does a remarkably good job of personalizing their interaction with students and parent. So far very pleased!

When we were moving to Florida from Massachusetts because of a work transfer with my husband, I was extremely worried about my childrens education. I did an extreme amount of research on public schools throughout Florida to decide where we would move to. Central was one of the best high schools within the area we could find and I was very happy with my sons results there. We only stayed 1 year and were transferred back to Mass but now are planning to move back to Florida on our own and I will only consider homes in the Central district!

My son graduated from CHS in '07. He participated in the Dual Enrollment program and graduated with his AA degree and his high school di[ploma simultaneously. I found the guidance office to be the most knowledgeable in the county in facilitating this process. He is now enrolled- at 19 yo- in a PharmD program and is wildly successful competing with students who are consistently older than him. CHS and PHCC prepared him academically for success in a most competitive academic environment. Kudos to all involved!!!

My son is finishing his first year at Central and I must say I've been very happy with the school. He is very active in football, but the best thing about Central is it's absolutely fantastic NJROTC program. The instructors are phenomenal and have really created a program that has changed the lives of many of the students involved in it. The score that Great Schools has given Central is incorrect...this school is a 10. Oo ra Navy!!!

I graduated from Central in 2006. The only thing that makes this school great is the NJROTC program. My senior year we ranked #1 in the NATION. It is an excellent program that teaches responsibility, respect, discipline, and is still fun. It also offers tutoring, extra-curricular activities, and athletics. This program could run the school. HOWEVER, central by itself is nothing, there are only a select few of teachers that seem to know anything.

This school is great! The NJROTC program is outstanding and as many may know, they are #1! I feel this school has changed a lot and is becoming better every day!

I go to Central now, and i think that this school needs to improve alot of things. Espeacially the academics. I can honestly say that i am not learning much. And we hardly do anything. this school seems to care more about the dress code then academics. I honestly think that i am less smart then i was before i started going to this school. And this is only my first year!

I think the school needs to worry more about academics and what the children are doing or not doing in class and less about what the kids are wearing to school. Now I am not saying they shouldn't have a dress code, but they are more strict with the dress code then they are about learning. My child is in honors classes and 11th grade classes, while in 10th grade and she is still learning things she learned in middle school when we lived in NY. If they expect these kids to do better on the FCATs and in college they need to work on strenghtening the programs they are being taught and making the subjects more challenging for the students of all grades.
