    Centre Elementary is a wonderful school! I was worried about my son adjusting well since we preschooled at home but his teachers are outstanding and care very much about helping their students adjust into "big school". There are many assignments for the parents to help get their child get ahead or work on areas they may be having trouble with that the teachers go out if their way to make available. There are also many programs and groups to help parents make sure their child is getting the full educational experience they deserve. Centre Elementary really stresses a well balanced effort between the family and the teachers to make sure all the children have the tools they need and I couldn't be more pleased that my son gets to learn and grow here. I have not had a single issue and would highly recommend any family looking into other surrounding areas (like Hokes Bluff or Sand Rock) to take a tour at this school before deciding where your family would be most comfortable making a home.

    I personally love this school and wouldn't send my child to another! The teacher I've met so far are very nice ad sweet and treat the children the way they would want their own children treated.

    This is the absolute worst school I have seen in my life so far! The eduacation materials and levels are way below. I hardly call giving children the answers to pass legite. Lets not talk about staff. 0 I wonder if they even screen their teachers.
