    I completely disagree about the statement about the staff not caring. In my experience they are wonderful and very sensitive to bullying and are quick to address it in the extremely rare occasion it has happened. There are after school programs community events and just so many cool things for the kids to be involved in my husband went there over 20 years ago and had the same great experiences. I am excited for the opportunity my daughter has to go to this school it is great and the more you are involved in what they have to offer the better it will be.

    My daugher only went here one year because the teachers and principal didn't care about her and did nothing to inform me of any potential problems. We had to teach her self defense because nothing was done to bullies. She went to other schools with out problems. Beware!

    Central Elementary is head and shoulders above the rest! Three of our children have been through the grades and two currently attend.

    I have two students at Central. The teachers GENUINELY care for their educational growth as well as their emotional well being. The parent teacher communication is wonderful. We have a child with ADHD and the programs here are one of a kind. The principal is OUTSTANDING. This is truely a great school.

    Central Elementary is a wonderful school. I feel my children are safe well cared for and are educationally challenged. I feel the teachers really and truely care about their students and go out of their way to show their kindness. I feel that Central is a community school. Everyone is involved and parents are always welcome in the classrooms.

    I find that of all the schools my children have been to that this elementary school has been the best and they did better here. The teachers care and parent involvement is higher here than I've seen anywhere. The principal really is a great guy and my children like him and respect him. I give this school high marks.
