Centerville City Schools embraces a tradition of excellence that dates back to the early 1800s when formal schooling took place in a one-room log cabin. The Centerville-Washington Township community has a long history of demanding quality public schools, with an emphasis on the importance of student accomplishments in academics, athletics and fine arts, stressing the importance of a well-rounded education.
