Center Road School fosters a positive, inclusive school climate. Relationships are at the heart of our approach. We create strong connections with students and families through relationship building and communication. All students are taught social-emotional skills and school wide behavioral expectations. More individualized interventions are available to those who need them. We support students in demonstrating our core values of being Caring, Responsible, and Safe.
