Central Park School for Children Reviews

1 review
As long as I have known, they have had a wonderful reputation but it took me actually sending my child there to realize that there are so many things that they need to work on. They pride themselves on being a diverse school when their staff is not diverse at all. The student body is identical to a private school full of predominantly white privileged children that are allowed to misbehave with little to no consequences for their behavior. The donations that parents make to the school actually are their way of having a say in how things should go. There have been teachers that were fired per parent's requests so I have been told.
