Very helpful and pleasant, my sons teacher was amazing being that he switch from a rochester school here i feel she made that transition for him a lot easier then i had expected.

Central school has the most wonderful staff of any school I have ever heard of. Everyone from the principal, the teachers, the secretary, the school nurse, the counselor, to the janitor and all of the support staff, go far above and beyond what is required of them to provide a safe, healthy, wonderful environment for all the students. Each one in turn has taken extra time out of their day to communicate with me as a parent, and go the extra mile for my son. They really care about each child, and have truly made a difference in our life. We feel so lucky to have attended school here. I can't say enough about our wonderful experience at Central. A heartfelt 'Thank-you' to all.
