Central Park East has been a great experience so far now that i’m a senior. Everybody is so friendly and willing to help you with whatever your issue is! The teachers are very much involved with their students and helping them grow academically and mentally. Administration is also very helpful and kind. They will stay on top of you not letting kids slack but also know to give you your space. All administration pushes their kids to be involved in sports and activities and everyone is actually involved. We have great activities and everyone is very familiar and friendly with each other. Loved it.

The school is small and very supportive of its students. The classes are great and very helpful. There is a library and computer lab where I go to do work. The school offers students many extracurricular activities and opportunities to get into programs that help students go to college. Some changes need to be made to improve classes and maybe create new ones, but overall great!
Central Park East High School was a great high school experience! The teachers are all friendly and accepting of their diverse set of students. Students were able to open discussions on current events throughout class, and if the workload was overwhelming the teachers are understanding enough to listen to their students' stress. The guidance counselors care about their students, as I've entered their office multiple times only to leave feeling a bit better. There is also a strong support network to help students academically throughout the 4 years as well as during the college process. I will miss this school!
