Central Avenue is not what I was expecting. They are not flexible and are not able to deliver personalized education. If you son/ daughter does not fit into the standard, they (principal - the new one - and teacher) are not just un able to handle and work with the difference, they don't understand it. Don't recommend this school at all at least for someone who doesn't fit in the "american" standard (coming from a different country, different religions/ parents with different sex orientation, etc). Very disappointed.

What a great school! We love the warmth of the school and the emphasis on education. A model school on all levels, set in a beautiful town with everything to offer.

Central Avenue is like a family - the faculty, parents and students are all commited to making this school the best! While the best education is a priority, there are also enrichment programs, sports and family events. I am very happy that my 2 kids attend CAS!

Excellent, homey school. It reminds me of how school was when my husband and I were growing up. The facilities are older, but there is a warmth in the school.

I think this school is great, my daughter goes there and I absolutely love it! There aregreat teachers who teach the students in such creative ways. The principle is very nice and is very friendly with the children. There are a bunch of volunteers and many parents involved with the children. They have so many oppurtuntinties for your children. I would definetly reccomend it!
