I have a daughter attending preschool here and she absolutly loves it. She loves both her teacher and the assistant. She tells me about what happens everyday and they seem like very kind and caring indivuduals. The year is not even over yet, but I know my daughter is more than ready for kindergarten. She knows her numbers, the letters and their sounds, is reading some, and can write her name and all the letters beautifully. She usually gets a little bit of homework everyday but it is fun for her.

I was not impressed by this school. I found the teachers to be rude to my children & to me. ONE example is my son had drop his ruler on the floor with out realizing it. Another kid had found it and went to take it to him, because although it didnt have his name on it; he was the only one in the class that had a wooden ruler. The teacher procided to agrue with my and the other class mate and tell them that since there was no name on the rule he couldnt prove it was his, even though is the other one in class now that doesnt have one. She made them put it in a little girls desk that hadnt been there for 5 months and said that it beloged to the that girl. first of all what is a girls stuff doing there after 5 months aways And 2nd of all even after we(mom& dad) called her she stated that WELL IF ITS GOING TO BE A PROBLEM THAN ILL JUST GIVE HIM ONE OF MINE. like we were in the wrong for wanting our son to have the school supplies, that he has had all year and that we paid for. The Principal on the other hand was wonderful, there was a problem on the bus with my children getting bullied, we brought it up to her and from that day forward we didnt not have ANY MORE promblems with that.

You cant fully understand how great this school is until you have to move away and start in another school system. This was the only school when its not just one teacher its all the teachers care about the children and make sure they do a great job of teaching and caring. I have had my five children enrolled in this school for over a long period of time. So I have had many different teachers, I have never had any problems with any teachers all are very wonderful people and I love that you can tell that they really care about making sure your children are learning. I miss this school.

This is a great school. My son has been attending Central since kindergarten (he's now in 1st grade) and both of the teachers he's had have been young and had fresh, new ways to teach and discipline. This year we've had some concentration issues and his teacher has been very helpful in trying to figure out a way to deal with them. I especially love that the school has music, art and P.E.

This is simply the best elementary school out there. The Teachers are the best.

The school is very old. The teachers are strict, but kind. This is a good school overall. If you are looking for new, fresh teachers, this is not the school for you.

My daughter has gone to this school Kindergarten through 6th grade. She has always been given every opportunity to learn and grown. She has an eye disorder which has caused her learning process to be a little slow than others, however, due to Title 1 and Title IV tutoring, she has learned very well. Mrs. Matlock is a great leader and keeps great order. I have been especially appreciative of the art and music programs at our school. Some schools have none.
