Central Public School:

Central School has celebrated one hundred and six years of excellence in education. This school was built in 1906 to replace Elm Street Public School and the earlier S.S. Number 2, a log cabin which stood at the corner of Oak and Elm Streets. This new six room school was used for both elementary and secondary students. By 1910, a separate secondary school was needed and a three storey building was constructed on the same property. In 1925, Grimsby Secondary School was built on Bolton Avenue. This left the two buildings for use by the elementary students.

Over the years there have been numerous additions to the original building. The old high school building was demolished in 1969 and classrooms, a library resource centre, a gymnasium and change rooms were all added in 1970. Central School has a rich history. It was originally named Grimsby Central School because of its location in downtown Grimsby.

Currently, Central School has a population of just under 600 students. There are 23 classes in the school from Early Learning to grade 8 as well as French Immersion in grade 1, 4, 5 and 6. The Science, Design and Technology program is held at Grimsby Secondary School for the grade 7 and 8 students. The students at Central School participate in a rich and varied program provided by an excellent staff.

At Central School We Believe • that everyone should be treated with respect because everyone is special.

• that everyone must value their own accomplishments as well as those of others in order to develop confidence, curiosity, initiative, and self-discipline.

• that the provision of a safe, positive and nurturing environment will challenge children to pursue educational excellence.

• that a variety of instructional strategies are necessary to meet the needs of our students.

• that both individual and collaborative learning strategies are necessary for the development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable our students to be life-long learners.

• that parents and teachers are partners in the educational process modeling tolerance and respect of every child - the ultimate goal is to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to be positive participants in society.

• that on-going communication between parents, teachers, and children is necessary for students to achieve educational success.
