10 Parent Reviews for Centerville Elementary

I have 2 children at this school and overall I would say that, for a public school, it is probably better than average. The faculty, administration, and staff seem to care about the kids and the kids (including mine) seem to be pretty happy overall. I do think, though, that there are things that could ...  Read more

They have an excellent staff, starting with the principal, that serves the needs of the individual student. They could use some additional funds to enhance their programs and possibly allow them some money to disseminate to the nation.

A school is only as good as the people who run it. Personally, I am glad to see Mr. Foley go. He never once attended my child's IEP meetings, but his name was always on the attendance sheet. The comment a previous poster made about the 'snottiness' of the PTO hit the nail on the head! You see Centerville ...  Read more

The principal (who just retired) was great, a nice combination of child centered leadership coupled with strong discipline. The achievement of students is very high and as a whole the ...  Read more

As far as the teachers go, I have only had positive experiences. I wish I could say the same for the ...  Read more

This is great school! If I have to choose again this will be the school that I want! It is new school, great teachers and parents. There is room for everybody if willing to help. The PTO is great and anyone that wants to help is welcomed to help.

I agree that the are definite cliques that have to do with the parents. I know of a few families that moved because if you didn't live in a certain nghbrhd, your kids weren't included in anything. The academics are great, but forget it if your child is behind. I was told 2 weeks before school got out ...  Read more

Centerville gets the highest marks for educational environment and facility. The PTO is very active and provides funding for interesting field trips and other activities. The school seems to discourage parent volunteers and limits the areas in which they may assist (library, PTO). I would like to ...  Read more
