Centennial High School Reviews
Overall, I had an amazing experience at Centennial! All of my teachers were incredible, and you could really tell that the staff genuinely cared about the students there. The classes were all very fun, and none were too challenging or difficult. The only think I can really complain about is the sports. The coaches tend to play favorites, and we haven't had new jerseys in quite some time. My teammates weren't always the nicest, and definitely were exclusive. Overall though, the experience was great!
Over my 3 years at Centennial High School (so far), the hallways and classrooms of the East and West Buildings have not only witnessed the physical transformations of my teenage years, but the mental transformations that come along with it. I have found great satisfaction with almost every teacher I have encountered at the school, and admire many of them as model citizens. Having taken a tough curriculum, my teachers, with the exception of the science teaching, have continuously pushed me and made me have to fully devote myself to my work in order to receive the grades that I yearn for. As for clubs and activities, I enjoy participation in programs such as Junior Class Committee, Mentoring, NHS, Peer Leading, Student Council, band, soccer, and (hopefully) tennis in the fall. I find value in what I have learned in high school, and look forward to furthering and devoting myself academically and in my interpersonal relationships in life during my next steps in college and beyond.
Centennial High School has decent facilities, kindhearted faculty that have been patient with me and provided me the information and materials to succeed in my career, athletes I’m proud of, and AP/Honors classes that are challenging; it makes me feel like I’m really learning things outside of my comfort zone. However, some of the students seeking help haven’t received any. The student culture is very sport-heavy and doesn’t acknowledge the more musical, club, and academic accomplishments of the student body. Popularity is big. There’s very few minorities, and diversity is rarely ever celebrated. CHS has it’s strengths, but is far from perfect.
