Welcome to South Central Elementary School

South Central Elementary is located in Washington County, just off Interstate 79 in Canonsburg, PA. Although it is the largest elementary building in the Canon-McMillan district, our school offers the charm of a closely-knit  neighborhood learning center. 

Everyday 430 smiling faces walk through the front doors into our beautifully remodeled building to receive a state of the art educational experience.

Using the 5 computers available in every room, our highly skilled teachers in grades K-4 are able to integrate technology into daily lessons and are encouraged to hone their own skills though on-going district initiatives.  South Central teachers mix the use of innovative tools with old fashion teaching to deliver a competitive curriculum at each child’s own level. 

To meet the needs of our diverse learners we offer the assistance of two special education teachers and para educators in a full inclusion setting. Additional support is provided through Autistic Support, Title I, and Reading Recovery programs. A comprehensive guidance curriculum, school nurse, speech and language therapist, English as a Second Language services are also available for our students. For those young learners who qualify - an extended day kindergarten program is offered.  Additionally, the SCOPE program is offered for those children identified as gifted.

South Central represents socioeconomic differences and cultural diversity working together for fun in learning. Our safe and nurturing environment centers around a Whale Done theme of conduct. Just as the trainers working with Shamu know - South Central recognizes that "nice matters." We make every effort to accentuate the positive, build trust and redirect energy when mistakes occur.

Stop in to visit and see for yourself what makes South Central a

WHALE DONE School!

IMPORTANT!!!

The district has a strict policy on birthday treats!

Please note in the Canon-McMillan K-4 handbook: Students are only permitted to send in NON EDIBLE TREATS for a child's birthday celebration. Sorry, but we will have to ask you pick them up if treats are sent to school.

Due to our high number of food allergies, as well as special diet concerns, South Central will not support the distribution of edible items during holiday parties as well. This is for the safety of all of our students.
