As a Kansas City Public School (KCPS) alumnus, Mr. Neal is excited and proud to be serving as Principal at Central Middle School. Prior to joining the Central Middle family, Mr. Neal served as the principal of Benjamin Banneker Elementary, he attended the Institute for Urban Education at the UMKC School of Education and then served as an administrator for Lee A. Tolbert Academy.
While bringing academic improvement to Central Middle is his central aim, Neal realizes that building a personal, trusting relationship with students and parents is the first step to Central Middle’s success. While our students face many difficult obstacles, it’s important they understand we have high expectations of every student. Every member of our faculty is committed to helping our students succeed!
Neal is not only a product of KCPS, but his son is also a KCPS student. Neal’s ultimate goal as principal is that every student moves on from Central Middle with a strong educational foundation and is ready to succeed in high school and beyond.
