Welcome to Central Elementary School

Sara Wagenaar, Principal

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, library, and art. 

Here at Central Elementary, we live by the 8 Keys of Excellence. These character traits guide our behavior, thinking and how we treat each other. Each month, we focus on a specific Key with lessons that go deeper into their purpose. Learn more about the 8 Keys of Excellence by clicking HERE

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!
