Welcome to Central Elementary

Central Elementary is located in the mountains of beautiful East Tennessee. The town's name is Wartburg, which is in Morgan County. Wartburg is approximately 50 miles west of Knoxville, TN.

The school houses Pre-K through the 5th grade with a total enrollment of around 700 students.

We are proud to create an environment which promotes academic growth and social achievement. We take pride in producing a risk free learning environment where every child can feel safe when at school. The community and family members are always welcome to become involved in the education of our students.

At Central Elementary we are working on “Building the Foundation” for the next generation!


Mission Statement
We, the staff of CES, work as a team with parents and the community to identify and meet the needs of our students.   Our mission requires that we provide developmentally sound methods of instruction in order to educate the whole child, in accordance with state objectives and curriculum.

    We would like to recognize students this morning who have achieved their Smart Goals. They are:

    Attitude. We’ve all got one, but what type of attitude do you have? Attitude is actually a choice. It is one of our most important choices because it affects the way we live every single day. Our character word for this month is peacefulness. Do you have an attitude of peacefulness? What do you think a person with a peaceful attitude is like?
