Central Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

July 27, 2014 Submitted by a parent
My children have thrived at Central. We moved here for the schools and have been very happy! Principal Dygert is wonderful, engaging and positive with everyone. The kids are challenged each day - we love it! Way to go Central El!

New principal (Mr. Surian) this past fall as definitely made a difference in this school for the better! Such a tremendous positive feel in the building, I believe you wouldn't recognize it from last year! Amazing! Many great teachers. I think Central is on it's way to the best in the district!

This is my son's second year at this school and I've been very happy with his teachers. As an elementary teacher myself, I can say they have gone above and beyond what I have expected them to do for my son. The school has a new principal as of 2012 and there is a positive feel to the building. Parent participation is excellent.
April 20, 2010 Submitted by a parent
The principal is not forthcoming regarding information explaining school policies. My child's teacher has spent the year attempting to dissuade me from teaching him things he has asked to learn because I might be 'pushing too hard'. The playground staff is inattentive and pays little attention to scraps and bullying. And the PTO are unkind to one another behind each others backs. Altogether not the best school in Portage, by any means.
January 26, 2010 Submitted by a parent
As a parent whose child was assigned to Central Elementary after Waylee's closing, I have some observations regarding Central that are unflattering. There seems to be a different 'feel' and culture here than at the other Portage schools. My child's teacher is 'adequate' but I cannot say that she is inspired. The children seem to spend an inordinate amount of time being entertained by television in the classroom. My child's teacher is a very nice woman, and she keeps the kids working to the lesson plan, but: There isn't enough advancement that I can see is useful, and: she doesn't seem to have taken the time to really know each child the way my kid's other teachers have. I hear similar complaints from other parents. And although the school has some strict policies regarding behavior, they seem to be enforcing them in a rather haphazard manner. Portage has better schools.
