 Central Grade School


The mission of Central 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.
