Good school. Public schools can only do so much to pay attention to each kid and family. But I am impressed with the effort that the teachers and faciltiy put forth. If you are going to go public, this is a good one in Centralia.

I would agree with prior review, although how this school is a 4-star escapes me. No music, no performances, resistant to parent involvement/observation. Try another school.

My daughter started kindergarten at this school last year. I was quite impressed with both her teacher and the school as a whole. I do wish there had been more opportunities for parent involvement/observation. There were no 'recitals' or performances which was kind of a bummer.
