The Kinder program is fantastic! My kids are learning and they are having fun. The teachers really seem to care and provide excellent feedback and provide guidance on areas that students need more help. The Principle is very respected by the parents and students.
Central is a great school for many reasons, but the primary one is the strong community. Mr. Marchetti sets the tone from the top, and the sense of respect and caring that the teachers have for each other and for their students is an important part of what makes the school such a positive place for children. Despite California's terrible crisis in education funding, the school manages to continue providing art, music, dance, PE, science, and other "extras" that shouldn't have to be extra for our state's public schools but sadly are. Central manages to do all this through additional Ed Foundation funding (thank you SchoolForce!), a really strong PTA, and parent volunteers who help with everything from cutting paper to teaching art to ukulele club to yard duty. Parents put so much into helping make this school strong - combined with top notch teaching (even the "less favorite" teachers on the staff are really quite strong as far as teaching goes) and a leadership team that cares about academic excellence but also social and emotional learning, a hands-on-curriculum, a "tinker" lab starting in kindergarten, and emphasis on real-world skills like communication, comprehension, and problem-solving - we are really so lucky to have a school like Central.
This is a fantastic school. We are very pleased with the teachers and staff.
We love this school and the community. There is a very wonderful community of parents who are committed to creating a safe, nurturing, challenging environment for their children. The education is a lovely combination of whole child (with music, dance,and art) and a great academic preparation. The community has really rallied to keep the school top notch through these very challenging economic times from donating money to volunteering time. We are extremely grateful that are children are a part of this school and community.
