  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 12, 2006
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I have been so impressed with the work ethic of the teachers and staff at Central and at the camaraderie between all the staff and volunteers. They are so committed to building a quality learning environment and making sure each child has their individual needs met. The principle is very involved, spends time in the classrooms daily, and knows all the kids by name. I appreciate that there is a focus not only on academic improvement, but also on building the children's personal character, integrity, and self esteem. Central is a positive and caring environment for kids to learn and grow in.
