The Champions of Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts

Located just outside of Fayetteville, North Carolina, with approximately 400 students, Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts has a rich and storied history. Our students receive a rigorous academic curriculum while being simultaneously immersed in the arts. We embrace and hold all stakeholders to truly live our mission.

We provide our students with the opportunity to perform in our Eastover Little Players troupe, sing in our Champion Beat chorus, or to express themselves artistically in Creative Champions. They are encouraged to lead through becoming class representatives in the Student Council. Our students are academically challenged through the award-winning Battle of the Books and Science Olympiad teams, and celebrate their academic achievement through their earned membership in the Beta Club. Additionally, we create an atmosphere of leadership, and social-awareness and responsibility, through our Character Ambassadors. These, along with other extracurricular offerings, allow our students innumerable opportunities to excel.

Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts exudes excellence. It is expected by our students, parents, community, and team of highly qualified educators, and stems from both dedication and diligence. Our school family is exceedingly proud to call Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts home. We believe in high expectations, hard work, and a dedication to every single student's academic success. In turn, our students achieve this because of tradition, rigor, and relationships.
