    "I have had two children go to central middle school and they are great students, not only because of their dad and myself, but because the staff at central make it priority number one to make sure that their student succeed in all aspects. Not only do they care about the students grades, they care about the students. My greatest appreciation to central middle school for all their hard work and caring."

    "We love Central! My daughter went there and my son is currently going. Yes, there are some (very few) teachers that are below average, but that doesn't make it a bad school. The majority of the teachers are really interested in students succeeding and doing their best. Central has gotten a bad rap over the years, and it's ridiculous because it isn't deserved at all now. The problems that they have are problems that ALL schools have - they just seem to be heard about more than the other schools and I think it's because this school doesn't have mostly middle-upper class families going to it and the media just likes to publicize anything that went wrong there. That's just sad. It is very diverse and I love that! My kids have gotten a great education there. It is in transition right now with administration, so I expect lots more good things to come. Don't count Central out - you will be pleasantly surprised. At least go visit the school before you decide yes or no. They also have a very active parent group, too, and that's really nice."

    "Central Middle School does have wonderful, caring teachers! Of course there are a few bad apples however what school is free from these? NONE! The Administration (principals) are caring and involved with the students at Central, they patrol the halls, etc and speak to the students. There is a parent group and police officer that helps patrol the halls, doors, etc so you can get involved if you want to help. There is also a PTA for parents to get involved. And really that is the key - Parent involvement! No I am not a teacher, I am a parent with a student there. There are rude kids - usually these kids have parents that are involved with work, othere things and expecting the school to raise their children for them! There are several groups of children there and they are NOT all bad! Great programs are offered!"

    "This school is absolutely horrid! If you live in this area and have a middle school child, don't take them here for their own good. I wish I could give it no stars. Most of the teachers are nice, but they either give too much discipline or too little. For example, my daughter came home crying on the first day of school, saying that some boys had called her fat, ugly, and other rude names. After contacting her teacher, she replied "suck it up." This school is awfully biased as well. I get that nutrition is good, but pointing out how unhealthy overweight people are just perpetuates the problem. Not all overweight people will get heart disease and die. You can be skinny and get heart disease and die. Another day, she had to serve lunch detention because someone stole her book. We almost had to pay $70+ for a stolen book, and they wouldn't even check the cameras! There are only 2 types of people here: The really stuck up girls and the evil boys who love to make fun of people. A bunch of girls fit into the second category as well. Overall, I give this school a 2/20, because its music program is great. Other than that, if your kid wants to remain sane, transfer schools or move."

    "Very unhappy with Central Middle!! The principle seem to turn a blind eye to any issues and try to look intimidating to keep the students in check. However, the majority of the student body is very rough. My children do not feel safe at this school and have witnessed and heard things from students in class that are very inappropriate and shocking and they feel like none of the teachers care!!! Heard nothing but, negative things about this school from some of the local residences. Wish I would of heard this before we bought a house in Central Middle location!! New to OKC and thought any school in Edmond was a good one. We were wrong!! Central is the same academically as other Edmond schools (which is good) but, the student body isn't!! Avoid at all costs!! Very disappointed!!"
