Centerville School programs keep kids current

PLUGGED IN: Dianna Toledo, foreground, Rachelle Guthrie, and other students at the Centerville School work on computers in the school's study hall. The school is running a new levy this year.

The 69 students attending the Centerville School hear it often:

"You are held to a higher standard at Centerville School."

Kristen Cameron, superintendent of the school, points out the truth behind the statement: the school is a 2012 Washington Achievement Award winner, Measurement of Student Progress. "You must show growth in order to qualify for this prestigious award," she says.

The school is housed in a building constructed in 1919 and that, despite windows that have been redone, looks much the same as it did then. But the school's programs are current with the times. As it ramps up for a new levy this year, Cameron says funds are earmarked for the school's long-term sustainability.
