The academic programs can't be beat. Infact I have never heard of some of these programs in any other schools. As far as the extracurricular activities go it is a very easy to enroll a student into one of these. Central Middle School has lost very few athletic awards but, to my knowledge it has won a world championship in a program called lego league. Some of the facilities in this school are outstanding. The Parent involvement could use improvement but it has what matters the most and that is that the parents support these student's and help them achive the grade they need. Overall this school could use some improvement but in my opinion is extremely rare to have compared to other schools in the district.
