Centennial High School Reviews

I had always expected a "High School Musical" experience, but everyone told me that was a unrealistic. I lowered my expectations. My junior year I got a taste of what I'd hoped for. There was a basketball game against Capitol High School. It was a competition of "the real CHS." The school was COVERED in centennial colors, and everyone was shining with school spirit. Our school came together, and cheered our team on. We ended up winning, and that win still unites us. Our sports teams aren't amazing, but we cheer each other on. We are united. I have also seen remarkable things in the academic category at my school. There is always going to be a teacher whose class puts you to sleep, but there are definitely teachers that are so engaged in what they are teaching. It makes me want to learn more. Every teacher I have had at Centennial is willing to help me every day during lunch, and before and after school. I'm so grateful for patient teachers who help me through everything I need.

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 love the welcoming environment. Everywhere from the students, to the teachers and admin. You will always feel like you have a place at this school! I love how involved the admin are as well. You will always see them checking in on students on the daily!
