Teachers and administrators are amazing and very understanding when dealing with children who are a little different! My son's teacher compliments him every time I talk to her and had nothing negative to say about him even though I know he won't work independently. She knows i worry about that, so instead of stressing me out by bringing it up when we talk, she simply informs me of how much he's improved and goes on to tell me how polite he is and how thoughtful he is. She really knows how to make a worried mom's stress go away!
Centerville Elementary is a great school unless you have to deal with a certain councilor. My child was being physically and emotionally bullied and it was up to her to decide how to handle it. She called me and told me it was my child's fault because she can be irritating. When I disagreed with how she handled the situation she told the vice principal I was yelling at her when I had not raised my tone even once. Now that that situation has been handled she keeps questioning my children and asking them inappropriate questions.
Centerville is a good and clean school. The staff is friendly and makes you feel welcome. My daughter graduated 5th with all A s but wish she could have been challenged more. Homework was done within 30 min or less. I m used to do more homework but I grew up in Germany. The school lunches are horrible and I started to prepare healthy lunches for my daughter. The Teachers like to keep communication with the parents. My daughter loved to go to school there and never had any problems
My family transferred here upon military orders. My two school age daughters attend Centerville but had been use to schools in the Boston, Ma. area. Having said that Centerville cannot compare with the schools they had. The educational standards are far below what they had and the extra activities such as music and art didn't capture my girls attention. Overall not a horrible school but not a over the top school like the one we had in the north either.
My daughter attended this school and did very well. We transferred from a Bibb County school and she really improved after the transfer; however, she is in Middle School now. One of my younger children now attends Centerville Elementary, and I hate to say it, but I have noticed a fall in standards. I went and ate lunch with my son one day and realized that the food offered in the lunch room is VERY unhealthy, and my son had started to gain a lot of weight. I've had to start packing his lunch as often as possible and his weight is getting back to normal. I would say that this school is okay, not great, but not bad, just okay...if you are looking for an elementary school in this county you could do better...
