• From the Principal, Mrs. Rose Bowman & Associate Principal, Mr. Kevin Tavares



    Welcome to Center School!

    Center School is an Early Childhood School where children in grades Pre-School through grade 3 come together in a positive learning community. The Center School staff welcomes the opportunity to share each day with our students. We are confident that together we can create the optimum environment to ensure the success of all students!

    Each morning we come together in the gymnasium to have our opening exercises together. We begin the day by listening to a piece of classical music as part of the “Music in the Morning” curriculum provided by the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. The Pledge of Allegiance is recited, we sing a patriotic song and hear a message from Principal as a school community.

    All of the teachers at Center School have been trained in the “Responsive Classroom” model. The learning environment is focused on positive student engagement as students and teachers work together to understand and internalize the standards that have been set in the each area of the curriculum. Each week all students in grades Kindergarten through grade three participate in five specialty classes: Art, Library, Music, Physical Education and Technology.

    Each day we work as a team with students and their families. Together we know that we can make a difference in the life of each child in our school community!
