Center Point Elementary School is a K-2 elementary school in the Jefferson County Schools system. It is located at 4801 Indian Trail behind the Center Point Shopping Center and just north of 23rd Avenue Northwest in Center Point.
The school has approximately 620 students in kindergarten through second grade. Laura Rose is the principal. The school's colors are green and white, and its mascot is the eagles.
The original Center Point School was constructed in 1924 with rocks gathered from throughout the community by residents.
The current school building was constructed in 2003 and had an "Eagle's Perch" second-grade wing added in 2007. The campus was nearly completely destroyed by a EF-3 tornado which hit Center Point early on the morning of January 23, 2012. Students were temporarily taught at nearby Erwin Elementary and Erwin Middle Schools until a replacement school could be constructed on the same site.
