All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

I was pleased with my daughters experience at Center School. She had a learning disability (auditory processing disorder). They worked hard to identify the issue. The school went out of there way to accommodate her special needs and to give her back her self esteem and confidence.

I have been a substitute at Thomaston center school for several years now and I think that the negative reviews it has received are unfair. The teachers there are fantastic, particularly the 4th and 5th grade teams. While i agree that there may be too much homework and that some of the work could be more challenging, this is an issue anywhere as teachers are no longer able to choose their curriculum and are forced to teach subjects that are outlined by state and federal guidelines. Recent integration of special education students into the mainstream classroom have further complicated things however this is NOT a problem with the school itself, rather it is a problem that is or will be affecting all schools. The principal is great and discipline is administered when necessary. I would recommend this school to anyone without hesitation.

Currently, I'm becoming a freshman at the Waterbury Arts Magnet School. Before coming to the Thomaston Center School for 6th grade, I attended the Maloney Interdistrict Magnet School in Waterbury. Once I came to TCS, it was a total shock for me. The 6th grade staff was great, but I was never academically challenged; the regular courses were too easy. But the bigger problems are these: The pricipal leadership, the discipline and the students attitudes towards others were (and still are) very poor. The pricipal lacked in the discipline area, and his leadership was poor towards it. Everyday, during my math class, there was a disruption from a student in the classroom above us, and we would here the principal there, trying to get him to stop, but he never really disciplined him. Also, there are many clicks there among the students. Parents, you can improve this school.

I think the school is great, some parents just need to stop blaming the principal and teachers and, just teach their children better. one thing I have to say is the homework is out of control, their back packs are so heavy its horrible. I think they need to do homework on a daily basis for example math on Mondays, english on tuesdays etc. that way we can help our childrens back. I think this is a great idea and will help our childrens back. thank you.

This school is horrible, the principal does not deal with the important issues. Most of the teachers are mean and to hard on the kids. My kids are in 5th grade and I would love to tranfer them else where.
