Quality Profile

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 value of a well-rounded education.

The district has developed a Quality Profile that provides a more detailed look at what our community, staff and students value most in our schools. While state report cards tell part of the story, there are many other important components that make up a comprehensive, high quality educational experience for students in Centerville City Schools.
