Welcome to The Center School

The Center School is a part of the Nashoba Regional School District which consists of Stow, Bolton, and Lancaster. The Center School houses students in grades PK-5 and currently has 630 students enrolled. The Center School building project was completed in the fall of 2012, in time for all students to begin the school year in the new building. There are presently 29 classrooms and the staff totals 70 employees. Our class size varies from 18 to 25 depending upon the grade. We provide a strong academic program featuring high expectations and current educational practices which enable students to maximize their individual potential and become valuable citizens in our community.

Letter from Mr. LaCoste, Principal:

Good Afternoon,

Each year I am amazed at how quickly the school year has passed. It seems as though we were just welcoming students back to school. May and June are often busy and exciting times of the school year. The weather is warmer and we begin to celebrate our accomplishments as a school, grade, classroom, and individuals. There are author's tea where first graders share their writing, science fairs that bring to life concepts, and field days where students demonstrate their skills. The end of a school year provides students and teachers with opportunities for reflection and continued goal setting. We're confident that we will finish the year strong as we prepare students for a new challenge.


 Thank You
The Center School is a special place and one that I will remember for years to come. Knowing that the end of the school year is near I can't help but reflect on the positive experiences I have had over the four years I have been principal. I have had the pleasure of working with a dedicated, caring, and hardworking group of professionals who put forth their best effort day in and day out. Having the opportunity to work with families who are supportive of education has been integral to our success as a school. The greater community of Stow embraced me four years ago and to this day I am impressed and inspired by the commitment it has to providing comprehensive services to all who reside here. Finally, what I will remember most about Center School are the children. They are what make being an educator a rewarding experience. I want to thank you for sharing your children with us each day. We know that when you send your children to school you entrust us to provide them with a safe and nurturing environment in which to learn. We take this very seriously.

In short, thank you for all of your support during my four years as Principal of The Center School. I will miss Center School very much!
