CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A Centerville school is among just a handful nationwide to be named a National School of Character.

Centerville Primary Village North is one of 40 schools to receive the designation.

That title means the school successfully demonstrates its use of character development to drive a positive impact on academics.

The principal says it is good to be recognized for something besides test scores.

She says the staff works hard to teach all students three important words.

“Respect, responsibility and citizenship. Responsibility is taking care of your work and doing what you need to get done,” said Andrew Erwin, first grader.

“We really work hard to have a warm, positive learning environment where we work not just on academics, but work to become good citizens,” said Mindy Cline, Principal.

The school will be honored during a ceremony October 30 in Washington D.C.
