The Raymond Central community is committed to providing a positive, challenging learning environment which prepares each individual student to be a responsible citizen in an everchanging society.
Raymond Central is a consolidated public school district incorporating the communities of Davey, Raymond, Agnew, Ceresco and Valparaiso.

All facilities have been updated allowing award-winning programs, high quality academic instruction, innovative teaching and one-to-one technology integration.
