Central High elementary provides for the educational needs and the equitable educational opportunities for all students, encourages a lifelong desire to learn that will follow them into their adult life and prepare students physically, mentally, and socially as productive, responsible citizens in their community.

Central High Elementary is the center of this rural community. We have a strong tradition of outstanding achievement in academics, and extracurricular activities. This is a rural school where many students' parents, grandparent, and other relatives also attended school. Because of the high academic and ethical standards set forth by this rural school and its community members, many people have chosen as adults to come back to this rural community to raise their families.

The school has always strived to prepare our children for the next level of education, which was highlighted with our achievement of an "A" on our school report card in a new school grading system implemented within our state. Using data to improve instruction has changed the mindset of our faculty and students. Teachers and students rely on a variety of data to support decisions related to student growth and gain. We provide the most current trends on professional development, to maintain the "highly qualified" status of our entire staff in order that we can meet the educational needs of every student.

We have a wonderful supportive community that believes in the teachers and students to achieve the very best. I believe our greatest asset is the dedication of our faculty and staff. We have teachers and support staff who are loyal and hard working towards the ultimate goal, success of our students.
