My opinion is that this school and the district cares entirely to much about it's public image instead of it's students. Both of my children adored most of their teachers but their classroom experiences were not as loved. On a daily basis both would come home and expkain how they're class was disrupted by misbehaving students. It seems like admin isn't properly supporting teachers in this matter. If students are being disruptive then get them out! After our experience here and at the middle school we choise to leave the district and couldn't be happier!

I cannot begin to state what a tremendous school Central School is. This success is attributed to the fine leadership skills of its principal, a former Central School classroom teacher. Her amazing talent and knowledge in keeping parents informed, students welcomed, and professional faculty who support her leadership and love of learning for all students every day is truly amazing. We are so lucky to have such a successful and challenging learning environment in this town that still flaunts its low per student spending ratio. This is a public school of 474 students and the principal knows each student by name at least by mid-October. So glad we live here!

This lack-luster school is poorly managed and seems to not take partental interests into serious consideration. I have been rquestion a parent - teacher conference now for months (even in person), and the administration has not responded. I feel cut off from my child's education. I can't even get a clear picture of what an average day is like for him. Truly feeling cheated by this and cannot understand why any clear-thinking person would decide to send their child there instead of the far more professional and involved Eliot Elementary School.

The parental involvement in this school is amazing. It is encouraged and welcomed by the staff. There are many opportunities to volunteer and participate. The staff is great!
