The Central Model Senior National School is a co-educational school for pupils from second to sixth class.
It shares a building in Marlborough Street, Dublin 1, with the neighbouring infants' school.
The school participates in Band 1 of Delivering Equality of Opportunity to Schools (DEIS), the action plan of the Department of Education and Skills for educational inclusion.
Strategies developed by the school under this plan have had a noticeable impact on improving pupil attendance levels, which are now very good. The school presents as an inclusive learning environment in which pupils of many nationalities are welcomed and encouraged to participate fully in school life.
