My 4 daughters attended Center Elementary School. This is an excellent school. These teachers always go the extra mile to assure that all children are given the opportunity to excell. Center Elementary is student/parent friendly and it is obvious how much the teachers and administrative staff care about their students. We will always owe a lot to Center Elementary for the part they have played in our childrens lives.
