At Centreville we believe that all children are inherently talented and that optimism, hard work, perseverance, and positive relationships will help children to develop their talents to be successful at the highest level. Our staff purposefully creates a safe learning environment that encourages risk taking, goal setting, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. We have a diverse student population and we celebrate our diversity embracing each student as a unique learner.
Centreville Elementary School has a special partnership with the Kennedy Center as a member of the Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program. The CETA program helps us to energize the classroom with fun learning activities that utilize dance, music, theatre, and visual arts to teach the core curriculum! We have a variety of "green" efforts in recycling and energy conservation, and our students take pride in leading efforts to help maintain our outdoor learning spaces. Our efforts were so unprecedented that we were the first elementary school in FCPS to earn the coveted "Green Flag" award from the National Wildlife Federation.
We have a wonderful PTA that bridges our school, family, and community by supporting cultural arts, field trips, special projects, technology, and a variety of after-school programs. At Centreville we believe that our enthusiasm for learning, school pride, strong work ethic, and ability to make positive relationships with students, families, and community helps us to ensure that every child loves coming to school each day in a fun and challenging learning environment!
