As a substitute teacher in multiple districts, I am so impressed with the dedication and the accountability of the staff at this school to help students with such diverse backgrounds succeed in their education. These primary students are experiencing curriculum up to one year ahead of other schools in the districts where I have worked as a guest teacher. It isn't unusual to have kindergarteners (including those who speak Spanish at home) able to write a minimum of 2 full sentences in English without assistance plus being conscientious about proper punctuation by mid-year! I have observed full classrooms of 1st graders in other schools writing like preschoolers with a string of all capital letters that did not make sense! Central staff has a firm grasp on teaching mathematics with many staff members on the district math curriculum adoption committee. Again, Central students are being taught higher level math concepts and problem-solving than other students in the area. The students and teachers use SmartBoards and the computer labs efficiently and effectively. All staff (including office and custodial) make sure students are held to high standards for behavior. The building is always kept neat, clean, and safe by hard-working teaching, kitchen, and custodial staff.

Some of the most dedicated staff that I have seen after subbing preschool through 12th grade in various subjects, schools, and districts. These teachers put in long hours creating solid lesson plans and sound classroom management programs. I have told them they deserve extra stipends since they have to put extra effort in their classrooms including making sure families have letters, homework, and other information in English and Spanish.

We love Central!! Both my boys attended there and we have had wonderful luck with teachers who truly care and have gone the extra mile making sure they understand what's being taught. It is just K-2 and because of that, it offers a unique learning environment. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place for their child's first school years.

Central Elementary is unsurpassed in their quality of teachers, caring, and nurturing staff. I am always impressed by the teamwork in this school, and the willingness to put in the 'extra' time and work as needed to keep this program operating smoothly. Step into the building and feel the positive energy this school offers the children.

I cannot recommend a school that would let a second grader who doesn't even print legibly or coherently pass to third grade.

Central Elementary is a great community based school. All of the teachers are dedicated to their students succeed, and are willing to put in extra hours when needed. There is a lot of parent involvement in class and in other areas of the school. One point Id like to make is that Central is only K-2, not K-3 as stated on this site.
