Central Elementary School was the first elementary school in Pike Township. It opened in 1957 and was given its name because of its central location in Pike Township. The original Central was replaced by a new larger facility which opened on August 12, 2003, at 7001 Zionsville Road. It is on the same 155-acre campus as the Metropolitan School District of Pike Township's Administrative Services Center, Pike High School, Lincoln Middle School, and the Pike Public Library.
Today, teachers, administrators, and students at Central Elementary are continuing their school's proud tradition of excellence, which includes Four-Star School designations from the Indiana Department of Education, a national recognition for closing the achievement gap, a national drug-free school award, a state drug-free award, and accreditation by the Indiana Department of Education, with strong academic programs and a comprehensive curriculum. And, a dedicated Parent Teacher Association offers parents, our most important partners in the educational process, the opportunity to serve in the classroom and assist with other valuable PTA sponsored activities, which support our fabulous students and outstanding educators.
