I am so glad to have gone to Centennial! The teachers, especially in honors and AP classes, were incredibly helpful in preparing me for college, and worked hard to help their students learn and grow. I enjoyed participating in track and cross country, and had very caring coaches. Many of our sports teams performed incredibly well, especially soccer and wrestling. I also adored the music program and various clubs, including debate, NHS, and Key Club. This is an excellent school for a musically inclined or academically-minded student with a good variety of classes. Food, facilities, and diversity were to be expected for Idaho. The school has a generally warm and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

I loved the rich culture at Centennial and the kindness of every student and staff member. I felt safe coming to school every day and met so many great people. The environment was very welcoming but not overwhelming. There weren't too many kids so I still had room to walk in the hallways and get to know all of the kids in my grade, but it wasn't too small either. I loved being a part of all the different clubs and activities I joined and my teachers made it worth my while to come each and every day. I truly had an awesome high school experience all four years and wouldn't have wanted to attend any other high school in Idaho!
Centennial is a good school with a very warm atmosphere. Everyone gets along fairly well and I’ve never had problems fitting in at this school. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and are always there when you need them. Centennial is somewhat outdated (considering it is fairly old) and could use some updates, such as new bathrooms and maybe some more windows! But overall Centennial is a great school and I was glad to spend my four high school years there.
