Central Grade School

The mission of Central Grade School is "doing whatever it takes so that all will learn and know we care."

We use a school-wide approach called "Umbrellas for Peace" that focuses on kindness, responsibility, respect and positive thinking. Student assemblies are held throughout the year that focus on these character traits.

We reach a high level of academic achievement as determined by state and district standards. We commit to a comprehensive system of support to assure this outcome. Differentiation of instruction is used to meet the different ability levels throughout our 2nd-5th grade classrooms.
