Centre Ave school has far exceeded my expectations on many levels. The teachers, staff and even parents are wonderful with the children. I feel very confident sending my kids here as my daughter is excelling in all areas of study as well has boosted her self-esteem and confidence. We love CAS!

Centre Avenue Elementary School is more than a school, it's a family of students, faculty, administration and PARENTS! The PTA at Centre Avenue works tirelessly creating events, assemblies, workshops, etc., that support the teachers' curriculum and support the childrens' natural curiosity. I volunteered today at a program, and watching the parents and faculty work together enriching my daughter's experience exemplifies the family atmosphere.

This school has brought back the confidenece in my kids. We just moved mid year and I thought the transition would be difficult, but on the contrary, this school was very welcoming and accomodating to my kid's needs. My oldest has improved in her self steem and grades...I am very pleased with their teachers and how they have showed how they care for each child.

On the review of the best education at centre ave. school is untrue to write. Yes this is a small passionate community with good hard working honest people in it but when half a grade fails state test 2 years in a row it is clear education is not priority in this school budget is. How injust to let these students fail 2 years in a row and NOTHING IS BEING DONE TO HELP THESE KIDS OUR FUTURE. This is the last year my children will attend Centre Avenue School. The community has come together after this devastating storm but 50 kids in a classroom is illegal and a major fire hazard. I pray to God there is not a fire Again please remove this school from great schools.com . There is a grade failing year after year and this would not happen in a great school

When a 4th grade teacher gives 2 mathamatical questions that 3 after school mothers at the after school program cannot answer there is a problem. I think that 4th grade should not be getting so much homework in one day espically when they need to be studying for outrageous history and science tests. My child studied with me on several occassions every single paragraph she knew. Why did the teacher go and ask the trickiest questions that I could not evenanswer. It is right it isn't fair. and it is inhumane. I doubut my child will be at this school next year. The Principalis a nice guy...but known as a "Push over". Im the "b" parent the one one who is around on weekends. But this doesn'tmean I am 100% involved in evrything my child does in and out of school.
