Awards and honors
Centerville Elementary received the 2014-2016 National PTA Schools of Excellence designation. Centerville Elementary shares this honor as one of 34 schools within the Garland ISD to receive it. Only 169 schools received this honor nationwide. 42 of them were in Texas.
To reward successful schools, the U.S. Department of Education established the No Child Left Behind - Blue Ribbon Schools Program to honor those elementary and secondary schools in the United States that make significant progress in closing the achievement gap or whose students achieve at very high levels. The program recognizes and presents as models both public and private elementary and secondary schools that meet either of two assessment criteria.
First, it recognizes schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds and have dramatically improved student performance to high levels in reading (language arts or English) and mathematics on state assessments or assessments referenced against national norms in at least the highest grade tested in the last year tested. Second, it recognizes schools, regardless of their demographics, that are in the top 10 percent of schools in their states as measured by state tests in both reading (language arts or English) and mathematics or that score in the top 10 percent on assessments referenced against national norms in at least the highest grade tested in the last year tested.
