Mission Statement

About Central Five - Jefferson/Hamilton...

At Central Five there is a sense of family - a bond between children, parents, staff and community. It is through this connection that the Central Five family holds high its mission of bridging the gap between the prekindergarten to fourth grade and the middle school as it provides for the achievement of all students and enables our citizens to become motivated as life long independent and group learners. We currently enroll 587 students.

The programs at Central Five include strong academic curricula which are enhanced by art, physical/health education, DARE, vocal/instrumental music and computer science. In addition to a computer lab with twenty-seven IBM compatible units, there are networked units in each academic instructional area including resource centers, special education rooms and Academic Achievement classes. Access to the Internet is also available through these units.

We are proud of our uniqueness and importance in the molding of our young adults.
