Being at Central my whole high school career, I've seen the good and bad side of Central. My freshman year you could see that the staff and faculty didn't really care about the students education and that the students did little to no work and still ended up passing their classes and/or graduating. But, as the years progressed you could see a drastic change within and outside of the school. Especially my senior year. My senior year, that's when Mr. Madry came from Texas and became our principle. He has done such a wonderful job with changing our school around for the better. Test scores increasing, attendance increased, class performance is better, more students are involved in extra curricular activities, etc. Even after I have graduated, I am still hearing wonderful things about my school. We now have a band, majorette team, more AP classes, new gym and football field, and much more. I am glad to say that I am an alumni of Central Academy of Excellence.

I've always had a sense that administration weren't very well organized, they're always persisting that we're up to date, yet they're slacking more so than us. I can admit that I haven't learned anything since my middle school year at this school.
I first started going to Central my freshman year and it was horrible. The students were bad they didn't want to learn, they were always fighting, cursing the teachers out and everything. I didn't feel like i was going to learn anything. So sophomore year I left and went to Hogan, they were no better so I ended up back at Central Junior year. Since we've gotten a new principal he's been making a lot of changes for our school. He's gotten us new lunch tables, better field trips, and more. He also stays involved with the school, he interact with the students as well and were also learning more with new teachers. Central is way better than what it was before and I can finally say I actually like going to school now
