    Welcome to Central Elementary School…“A Place Where Every Student Shines!”

    At Central Elementary School, “A Place Where Every Student Shines,” is more than just our motto.  It is at the core of our expectations, as every day we sincerely strive to create an environment where students are valued and flourish.  Our dedicated staff is committed to making sure each of your children is as successful as possible academically, socially and emotionally. 

    Each year, students at Central Elementary School perform above state averages on the the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (MSTEP) exams.  Although we take pride in this fact, the focus of the teachers and staff is equally on individual students’ personal and social growth and success.  We recognize that students are most successful when families, the community and our staff at Central work together toward our common goals.  Together, we cultivate an environment where students are lead to become independent, responsible, caring citizens and decision makers.

    Because we believe school improvement is a continuous process, each year as a staff, we evaluate what we’re doing and how we’re doing it, to improve the educational experience of your children.  We identify key practices supported by the most current research and set goals that include those practices.

    Thank you for sharing your child with us.  I am eager to continue our journey toward excellence and look forward to joining you on our team as we take active roles in your child’s experience at Central Elementary School.
