Message from the Principal

Dear Central School Families,

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Central School and its many available on-line resources!  Central School is known for its warm and welcoming atmosphere. We are a diverse community committed to creating lifelong learners though the development of the arts, math, literacy, technology, and inquiry skills. This takes place in an child-centered environment built on social responsibility and respect.

The staff is committed to:

  • encouraging intellectual curiosity and the love of learning
  • promoting collaborative learning while encouraging the child's construction of knowledge
  • providing opportunities for critical thinking
  • promoting a safe environment that enables inquiry and risk taking
  • celebrating diversity and respecting different learning styles
  • nurturing the development of confidence, self-esteem and independence
  • valuing and supporting interests and talents
  • incorporating research-based best practices in order to foster professional growth and enhance learning

I invite you explore the rest of our web site including the on-line resources, the classroom pages, and news from our co-curricular teachers and support staff.  I encourage you to visit this site frequently to read our weekly newsletter and updates from the office as well as individual teachers.
