    This school is terrible if your child is a minority don't expect them to get the attention nor be able to blossom as they could I would take every effort to put them in another school

    since my children have been going to central they have been on the principals list and honor roll ! the teachers are great but the school has trouble keeping principals ! Mr.King was one of the best Principal that Central ever had as far as I am concerned and the principal after him well let's just say they filled Mr.Kings position with the enny menny minny mo game !!

    Cental Elementary is a great school. Although small the children are respectful and the climate is conducive to learning. I once taught at Central. Of the various schools that I taught at urban or county Central still ranks as number one.
