Central School Complex on Sullivan

Central School Complex on Sullivan

The new Central School Complex on Sullivan Road, which cost $46 million, contains two separate schools — Central Middle School and Central Intermediate School.

The new school complex includes classroom space for 1,200 students at Central Middle School and 1,200 students at Central Intermediate School. The classrooms are state-of-the-art and include presentation tables with computers for teachers, pull down screens, and wi-fi. More advanced classrooms are provided for science labs, art, band, choir, home economics, and industrial arts.

Ordinary classrooms have 750 square feet of space, and other classrooms have 1,000 or more. The complex also includes a Cafeteria which can seat 1,200 to 1,300 for lunch and 700 for banquets.

There are two gyms — a competition gym and a practice gym. The competition gym, which is better than many small colleges offer, incudes additional basketball goals and volleyball. Locker rooms are elaborate, and athletic facilities include coaches’ offices and advanced washers and dryers.

Each of the two schools has its own library.  Teachers have many amenities, including convenient restrooms, work rooms, shared prep rooms for science labs, and much more.

The central courtyard includes a clock tower and learning displays, such as a giant map of the United States. There are also practice fields for football, baseball, and softball.

As one teacher said, “It is like leaving purgatory and arriving at the pearly gates of heaven!”

When she saw the finished school, then  school board president Sharon Browning said, “I teared up. It took my breath away!”
