I would have to say Centauri HIgh School was the best school by far. They truly made me feel like I had another family other then my own. The teachers were wonderful, treating you like their own kid, just wanting the best for you. Everybody felt like family here since we weren't that big of school. This school taught me lot about myself and how many people care for you. The teachers are there to watch you succeed and make the best out of you. We just recently got granted a new school, which i'm sad to not be part of. The generations after us are lucky to experience this life changing thing. I hope they feel the same like I did, and know how lucky we are to be going to Centauri High School.
Amazing School! Highly recommend with excellent education and teachers. Everyone gets along and the sports and academics offered are great.
