Open Quote Central Elementary is a very well-run school with a vibrant family community and a good diversity of students. The teachers are very strong although there has been movement in the ranks lately, but this has been mitigated by overall strength of school leadership. The school benefits from strong school support groups (PTA & Schoolforce) who rally the student body parental corp to supplement any funding shortfalls and ensure that the students receive a well-rounded education. The extra-curricular programming does seem more oriented towards the arts, but there is demand to build out early-STEM programming as well. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
