  • We really like Central Elementary and the location. The teachers are supportive, and the staff is always quick to cantact you and willing to answer any questions and concerns you may have. I love the spirit weeks and their implementation of policies involving bullying. It challenges students to get involved and stop bullying. We cannot thank the staff enough for doing what they do, so again we thank you Central Elementary School staff.

  • My Grandson attends Central Elementary, and he has excelled in his academics. The children that reside around me have also excelled. The teachers are active in the parent/teacher/child relationship helping a student achieve the goals that lay the foundation for their future endeavors. If you are considering Central for your child I have to give them a A+.
