Central El School 5

Our school is a K-6 elementary school. 2 years ago, due to funding, several our "neighborhood" schools were closed, forcing Central to become the "in town" school. It was quite a change for all of us, as we were used to smaller classrooms, more one-on-one between teachers and students, and overall, a huge shift in thinking. Central rose to the challenge and has made this transition for my child, and the 100 other students who were new to the school, a wonderful experience. The teaching staff is amazing, and have welcomed teachers from the other schools. My daughter, who has always loved school, and has been a strong student, is growing in ways we had never imagined. She began archery, as it was an activity her gym teacher has excelled in, and has introduced the students to. She now shoots on a regular basis, and loves it! Last year, her teacher asked our daughter to participate in a talent show with her, and they tap danced to "Me and my Shadow" to the delight of the entire school. Every student has that relationship with the staff. They have been amazing, and have taken what could have been a very bad situation, and turned it into an exceptional one. Cudos to Central!!

Being a parent of 2 kids who go to this school. I am very impressed with the staff and principal. They all make you feel welcomed at their school. The principal gets to know the kids of her school and the families. I remember growing up the principals would not do that. I am very proud to have my kids going to Central.

Staff is good and principal is awesome. Traffic is terrible and there is no blinker light. There is a 25 mph sign right in front of the school. The painted 'school' on the road is almost completely faded. Sad.
