    "Everyone fights about everthing at this school. Worst school ever! Im putting my kids in a private school because CD and CDEAST are horrible. Parents are not correcting their children at home and they hand them money to do what ever they want except act right in school why should they, their parents wil pay their way out of anything.."

    "As a student, I do not believe that the previous parents' comments can accurately describe life inside Central Dauphin High School. In one, a lack of ethnic diversity is mentioned. To that, what can I say? It's a false statement. The faculty more than willing to help you before school, after school, and even through e-mail. Having been disciplined recently... I can say that the school has strong and (yet not overly strong) principals and leadership. These are things that parents just cannot see."

    "I am currently a student at Central Dauphin High School. I went to a very small catholic school for 9 years and finally decided that it was the for a change. Going to Central Dauphin was the best decision that I have ever made. It has every good aspect that one should look for if they are considering CD. First off, because of its size, there is a wide array of student interests that you will find. There truly is a group of people for every student. The sports, arts, and extra curriculars are state of the art. On a personal level I am highly involved with the music and drama departments and you will not find a better school for that in the area. Another extremely important aspect is the phenomenal teachers. CLass sizes are small and every teacher I have had, I have been able to create a connection with past the classroom. They want the best for their students and show a great respect, of course as long as the student is willing to return it. Students will always say that they hate high school and everyone will have unpleasant experiences, but aside from all of that, CD is the best place in the Harrisburg area that one could send their children."

    "The misconduct that goes on in this school is unbelievable. The teachers dont care. Classrooms are so unorganized the students do what they please. No wonder the grade averages are so low at Central Dauphin High."

    "Well rounded school that excells in sports and the arts. Too focused by Administration on state test results, but teachers and staff try to provide a complete learning environment. Currently doing an outstanding job, given budget constraints, but the future cloudy. Declining revenues may result in arts and eventually sports cuts without state or federal funding."
