Central Park School for Children is a Magnet School within the Durham Public School system. Their status as a magnet school exempts them from many of the school system's rules, and their approach to education is "child-centered" and rather more flexible than traditional-style schools within the system. Class sizes are also smaller. The main downside is that admission is by lottery, so it can be difficult to get in; they are, however, expanding to help meet demand.

Harena's youngest, Benjamin, has been very positive since he switched to CPSC near the end of spring semester 2005. We continue to be impressed by the contrast between the public school's handling of Benjamin (who was officially diagnosed with ADHD shortly after joining CPSC) and CPSC's handling of him.
