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!
