Centerville has a very dedicated, caring faculty. It is a Title One school with great diversity. The teachers treat their students equally and with great care, but have high expectations in their performance.

The school is going down hill quick. The community is changing and the school is not adapting. I have two kids in the school and the school is basically a baby sitting service. We educate our kids after school

I've had 3 children attend Centerville, 2 still attending, and I have know complaints. They have a great idea of what communication means with parents. Great school and community to live in. The teachers are caring, attentive, and patient with the children. I always see alot of parents at events.

My son has attended Pre-K thru 4th grade at Centerville, he has ADHD. This is a good gauge for the teachers abilities; he usually makes the honor roll. Each teacher has done an excellent job preparing and constantly challenging my son to do his personal best. I feel very confident that my son will be well prepared for Middle school.

We are so very pleased with this school and the serious curriculum that is offers, words alone can not express my happiness. I absolutely love the diversity of the students and what my son learns from each and every child is priceless. The administrators, teachers and staff are very caring. When I go there, I feel as though the year is 1965 and the world is perfect, the teachers wear apple sweaters. I really get that warm and fuzzy feeling when I am there. Great job, Ms. Kathleen Kelly (third grade)

I have two children who attend Centerville and I absolutely love this school. The teachers, the principal, the counselors, they all keep up to date information on my children's behavior, involvement in the class and there strengths. As a working parent I'm not able to spend as much time in their classrooms as I would like and their teachers find other ways for me to participate. I hate that my fifth grader will be leaving Centerville this year.

My two children attend Centerville Elementary and they are having a wonderful experience. If you want your children to start out the right way make sure they have Mrs.Lowery in kindergarten. She is the best kindergarten teacher and your child will definitely learn how to read. The best first grade teacher is Ms. Wallace she reinforces what they learned in the kindergarten and she is big on math and reading. This school is filled with wonderful teachers.

My daughter has attended Centerville Elem. for 4 years and we have had a wonderful experience here. The teachers are very helpful and caring. My daughters 4th grade teacher Mr. Reece was outstanding. He was always there if she needed help with anything.The parent involvement is great. We have alot of after school activites.

I've had all 6 of my children attend Centerville and have no complaints. There is always great parent involvement and since we now have a new principal there is a lot better communication. The best thing about Centerville is the sense of family.

My daughter Kelli is in kindergarten. Her teacher, Ms. Kellas is amazing! Kelli LOVES going to school and is at the top of her class! She also loves Mrs. Hardy (parapro). This has to be the best k-class at Centerville!
