Principal's Message

Welcome to Central School, home of the Cheetahs. Built in 1935, Central School offers a unique history not often found in other schools.  The impressions of the students' hands on the tile wall at the entrance of the school remind all who visit that the children are our focus.

Our number one priority is student learning and achievement. We structure our learning community based upon high standards and expectations. We are also committed towards providing a safe, nurturing environment where students realize the benefits of education and life long learning. Most importantly, we believe that all of our students can go to college.
At Central School, we embrace our rich cultural diversity. Students, staff, parents and the community are all respected and valued for their uniqueness, ideas and contributions. We believe in the power of developing a positive self-concept in order to reach personal and academic goals.
