Center Elementary


Welcome to Center Elementary!

Welcome to Center Elementary, home of the Center Elementary Eagles! At Center Elementary, our goal is to create a school that is welcoming, student-centered, focused on high academic standards, and supports the developmental and social well being of our students.

A big piece of Center Elementary’s focus is around positive behavior instructional support (PBIS). As a school, we are working to help each and every student SOARR (Be Safe, Be Orderly, Have a Positive Attitude, Be Responsible and Be Respectful)! In addition, we value parental input and support and work with our parents to provide the best possible education for our students.


Our motto at Center Elementary is, “One Team, One Dream”. We know that if we all work together we can make anything happen. Welcome to the Center Elementary family and we look forward to partnering with you throughout the year and continuing the tradition of educational excellence for all of our scholars.


Looking forward to seeing you at school!

About Center Elementary




Watch a quick video highlighting Center School District Teachers and Support Staff. These members of our team were nominated by peers to represent each building for their commitment to our students and staff. To honor social distancing this year, we recognized our building winners with yard signs at home. Help us thank our staff for their outstanding dedication to Center School District.
