    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.
