  • My children have attended Center School for three years. The teachers and administration are wonderful. The building is extremely dated and the district continues to throw good money after bad by renovating instead of replacing the building. My feeling is it is the people who make the school and not the facility and you could not ask for a more dedicated group of parents and teachers than you have here. My children are both very bright and they are challenged daily due to the diligence of the teachers, they are not left behind they are taught on an individual basis in accordance with their needs.
