Central School comes by its name because it is centrally located in the Mamaroneck School District. We are fortunate to be situated in walking distance to the Long Island Sound as well as both villages of Larchmont and Mamaroneck.
Known as a particularly warm and welcoming community, Central is a K-5 school with approximately 500 students. The current Central School building at 1100 Palmer Avenue opened its doors in 1965. Prior to that time, Central was located on the Post Road in what is now our Village Hall. Our facility was built to accommodate the growing community back in the early 60s when it became clear that a larger school was needed. We boast abundant green space which includes two baseball fields, three playgrounds, an outdoor classroom and our very own Native Woodlands.
Our PTA is very active, placing children at the heart of all they do. They organize many events such as our Scare Fair (not really scary at all ), our annual play, the Central School Talent Show, the bike rally and twice yearly book fairs, just to name a few.
We are committed to working in partnership with students, parents, staff and the community. We provide a safe, nurturing environment that maintains high academic standards for all students. Students are encouraged and taught to solve problems and make decisions that benefit themselves and others. We strive to partner with families through communication and opportunities for active involvement. We believe that every member of our school community has something to contribute, which fosters an atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement for all learners.
In addition to our core subjects, students are exposed to the arts in many forms and approximately 90 percent of students in grades 3 – 5 study a musical instrument. We are also a district dedicated to the ever-growing and changing world of technology and our community STEM Alliance is very active with all district schools.
We are proud to be at the helm of this very special place in the center of one of Westchester County’s most vibrant communities!
