Welcome to Central Elementary

Dear Central Elementary Friends and Families,

Central Elementary is home to 450 young five through fifth grade students. Our educational programming uses research based practices and curriculum to assist all learners, focused instruction in language arts and mathematics, and common planning time for teachers at all grade levels to design, deliver, and assess a comprehensive, yet differentiated learning environment for all students. Each week our children have the opportunity to participate in physical education, music, computer instruction, library, art, and for our fifth grade students Spanish. Our well-rounded curriculum allows for students to accelerate in areas of interest and our teaching faculty encourages and facilitates exploration and mastery learning for all.

It’s a great day to be a Central Elementary Comet!

At Central Elementary, we are learning about The 8 Keys of Excellence. You can help support your child’s character development by using the language of the keys at home!  Find out more about The 8 Keys of Excellence.
