Central Elementary School Reviews

By a Former Student on

Central is the worst school in Allentown. I always hated Central!
I was there for my 5 elementary school years which is too dull, inadequate, and very depressing for me
I really wanted to go to a different school for 5th grade which was the closest to my house, but I was stuck at Central for 5th grade
98% of teachers were so rude, stuck-up and despicable (Like Mrs. Slotter, Ms. M, and Mrs. Monaghan)
95% of teachers were so annoying and childish (Like Mrs. Riffle, Mrs. Cullen and Miss Nacci)
5% of teachers were kind and generous (Miss King, Ms. Blouse, Mrs. Oswald and Ms. Mitchell)
I was always unlucky
I always had to deal with mean substitute teachers (Ex.: 1 rude blonde guy was really rude to me, the 1 rude substitute lady in her 60’s was in my reading class, she says that I’m a mess and I was so insulted by her; the 1 rude lady had to cover my 2nd grade teacher, I asked for a drink because I was really thirsty, she replied “No..…!”
I never received a 1st, 2nd, and a 3rd place ribbon at the end of the school ceremony and it happened to me in 5 years at Central even though I’ve done so well, I still got nothing
I always lose at everything (Games)
I never made decent people
I was SUPER tired of going to that same school!
I was never fortunate
Some of the students were show-offs ({My sisters were}Experiencing great luck, getting all the attention), some of the students were rude, 5% of the students were generous, some of them were just plain losers & some of the students were just plain immature – childish (Acting like 5-year-olds)
I was always yelled by Mr. H (Especially when I screw up and don’t know what to do)
I felt like I was never in a spotlight
I was always treated like I was invisible
I had to deal with a mean gym teacher
I never win at anything
I never had any fun
I was always yelled at by Mrs. Monaghan for no reason
I hated my 5th grade year
I was abused by Mrs. Slotter
It made my experience totally miserable
It made my life miserable
I hated my 1st grade year
There were mean people there
I was permanently stable (Not moving to a different school)
I had 5% of decent friends
I was always left out
I’m always the last person to do anything (Being picked last in gym class)
I was always picked on by annoying teachers
It was the worst elementary school experience I’ve ever had in my entire life!
At the pizza party, I never got any pizza and all I got was the donut balls that taste disgusting
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 and started middle school, I felt really envious, miserable, and went to a total depression from it because I never received rewards or nothing even though I've done so well; I was unfortunate (Never experienced great luck) and I never wanted to see central again as long as I lived.
2 years later, when I see Central, I cursed that school out so severely that it’s definitely the worst school in the whole town
