Reviews for Central Elementary School

I have been very impressed by the quality of staff at Central. A lot of parents joke that there is no need to request a teacher because they are all fabulous...very true! The principal, Mrs. M.J., is amazing, super-involved with every aspect of the school. During the school day she can be seen doing everything from wiping down tables in the lunch room, visiting classrooms, supervising/visiting with children during recess, etc. The parent involvement is amazing and allows Central to continue fun traditions such as their monthly family nights, where the whole family is invited to the school for a fun, educational, themed evening.Read Full Review

Central is the most diverse school in the Iowa City Coralville School District system; dynamic - forward looking - solution focused - student centered - with indoor/outdoor classroom, in a park like setting. Located in the heart of historic Coralville, within the residential community. Student body participates in and donates to the community, nurturing the whole persona as our future. Read Full Review

This school has been a great environment for my kids. Their teachers are good, the parent involvement is outstanding, the traditions that are special at Central are a lot of fun. We loved Mr. O'Leary but have been impressed with the new principal, Mrs. MJ in her ability to command a sense of respect and pride at Central. There is huge diversity here, but kids accept each other well.Read Full Review

The principal Mike O'Leary sets the tone for the students, staff and parents. He is an extremely hard worker who cares deeply about this school. There are excellent teachers at every grade level and my wife and I have been very impressed. Coralville Central has a diversified population of students with different cultural backgrounds which we feel is also a very positive experience for our girls.Read Full Review
