Posted August 12, 2011

I did not have a good experience at this school & this has really upset me. I felt as if my daughter and I were outsiders, and on opposite teams from the school. My adopted daughter was dealing with a new school, a new home, and a new family. These factors, along with her learning disability, played a major role in her struggles in school. I feel as if the teachers, and staff members did not take any of this into consideration, instead I felt as if they took her acting out personally. It saddens me to feel that the teaching motivation was just not there. There is a difference between being bad and being troubled. I did not want her to be treated special, however, every student/child is different. They don t always learn the same nor act the same. I guess all I can say is that I am really shocked & upset at the experience I had at Centerville.

Centerville is a great school. The teachers are very helpful whenever a students needs help. The safety of the school is very excellent. My son enjoyed going to this school.

The teachers at Centerville are so dedicated! For a school with so little help from parents, they are working hard all the way around. Great school, and Mrs. Roseberry is an awesome kindergarten teacher!
