We are pleased to announce that we have hired two new members of the Center School District team. Principal Selection Committees, made up of teachers, staff, students, parents and administrators worked to review applications and interview candidates for both the Center High School and Center Middle School positions. With the approval of The Center School District Board of Education, Mr. Mark Wiegers, Ed. S, has been selected to lead Center High School and Dr. Fred Skretta has been chosen to lead Center Middle School as the new principal.
Working in Center
Welcome to Center School District, a small "boutique" public school district in south Kansas City. The district offers one high school, one middle school, four elementary schools, an alternative high school and middle school, and an Early Childhood Center. Tucked between State Line Road on the west and Blue River on the east, the district serves students from 85th street to 114th Terrace in south Kansas City.
A low student-to-teacher ratio provides smaller class sizes at each level. Center teachers average 12 years of teaching experience and 64% of teachers have advanced degrees, higher than the state average. At Center, we are “accredited with distinction” by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education – the highest level of performance.
