We love Centertown! My oldest son has been going there since he was in Kindergarten(5 years ago) & now my youngest son will be starting his first year in Kindergarten next fall. Ms. Turner, teachers, & staff are all great....so friendly & helpful when needed.They truly do care about the kids & having them be 'the best they can be'. I could not ask for a better school for my guys to go to! :-)

The teachers are excellent. My daughter transferred from another school in the county and she excelled here within months. The quality of the education is exceptional and the principal is wonderful and always trying to improve an already great school. We love Centertown.

This is our first year in a Warren County school and I could not have picked a better school. My son's teacher is tough as nails but it's the first time he has been challenged: it's taken some adjustment but we are doing well now. I feel very confident that he will be very prepared for 5th grade next year and beyond, all thanks to his teacher this year. The After-School program is wonderful, the school is clean, and the faculty and personnel are friendly and helpful.
