Phoenix Central School District Reviews

Phoenix Central school district gave me so many great years. it showed me great leadership skill, how to show love and compassion towards those who do it back. The teachers have made a great impact in my career because they always pushed me to do my best. they were there when i was struggling. In 9th grade i was diagnosis with epilepsy they teachers understood why i couldn't focus with black out. they helped me by after school slowly going over the lesson so i wouldn't fall behind. they helped me thrive. Phoenix spends countless of hours helping people in need. We also are showed what a positive role model looks like. The only thing I believe we need to change is how people view our school. Many other schools call us "weak" because we aren't up to date on everything but we are working on it. This year we started our Capital project were our school is being remodeled and getting the latest technology. overall, this school was the best school i Could ever ask for.

My son needs extra help and he receives excellent services to help him with his IEP GOAL. The teachers go above and beyond to help the student achieve their goal. The teachers are very involved with the students and if they see a problem it’s addressed.
The sports programs aren’t very good but the band and chorus is fabulous.
There are 3 schools in Phoenix school district and each school have upgraded electronics and programs for the students.
The food is not very good, my kids have told me numerous time the sell outdated milk ect. It seems to be the same food all the time, there isn’t much diversity or fresh healthy food.
My experience with my school is that your feelings change each year. It always depends on the teacher and fellow students, and sometimes they can be downright cruel. The academic areas I feel are not as broad as they should be, and you need specific criteria for certain diplomas. Three years of language, one of art or music, etc. This irritates me the most as I have no skill in language, and because of that I can only obtain a Regent Diploma. Now, the food has always been terrible, but part of that might just be me as I have the broad scope of issues to nearly every plant food. Other than all that, my favorite parts of being at this school are the good teachers, and the support you get by the staff in High School. I had severe depression and anxiety in Freshman year, and the staff understood and made accomodations so I could make it to school easier. My attendance has improved drastically thanks to the support of the staff.
