    "Definitely the worst school in Allentown. I always hated Central. 95% of the teachers were mean 90% of the teachers were childish 5% of the teachers were generous I never received a 1st, 2nd, or even a 3rd place ribbon at the end of the school ceremony and that happened to me when I was at central for 5 years even though I've done so well. I even had to take the bus to central because my house was really far away from central which my address was 424 Greenleaf Street. After I graduated from 5th grade, I felt really jealous, angered, and unlucky because I got no rewards or nothing even though I've done so well; and I didn't want to see central again as long as I lived."

    "The teachers, staff and administrators at Central work unbelievably hard to reach the students in Central. We work with students who deal daily with one or a combination of factors such as: poverty, hunger, abuse, emotional distress/trauma, peer-induced self-deprecation, peer-induced anxiety, etc. The teachers here in Central make every effort towards making the classroom a 'safe' place' for all students, as well as a place where they can all learn. It is a most challenging proposition but the teachers do their job well. Don't judge a book by its cover, please take the opportunity to read it thoroughly first. Central is a tough school, but it is most definitely a good one."
