I was very worried about my son going to middle school Those are very hard years for a child. He had loved school so far and I didn't want him to have a bad experience and start disliking school I worried for nothing. He LOVED Central. They do a great job of helping the kids mature and take on more responsibility while still helping them along. He loved all of the teachers he had while he was there and seemed to really grow and learn a lot. The only problem seems to be that they do not fully prepare the students for junior high school. He is struggling with grades for the first time in his life, and it seems that a lot of his friends who moved up to junior high are also having problems.
