Being at Centennial felt like it was the perfect step forward towards my education. Not only do I feel prepared for college, but I feel prepared for my next chapter. With many AP classes I can take, as well as honors classes, college won’t be a shock once I actually start taking college courses. Besides classes, the administrators and staff at Centennial are amazing. They listen to problems within the school, and execute plans efficiently. The teachers there are into their classes, and especially want to help students succeed. Overall Centennial High School has been a place that I’ve enjoyed going to not only for the classes provided, but also the staff and environment.

Centennial High School provided me with an idea of the rigor of college courses. There is a wide variety of courses at CHS. Students can learn to cook, to draw, to carve wood, and to create robots. At CHS, there are also great services for disabled students. I am deaf, and CHS offered me many great resources that allowed me to excel in school. My first biology class, AP Biology, introduced me to the topic and I realized that I love learning about biology. I am now hoping to major in molecular biology or biochemistry. Another great part about CHS is that I can take several AP classes. These classes are great because they challenge me more and I can earn college credit.
I really like this school! It has a lot of quality teachers and courses! However, the Art Department is sorely lacking and the plumbing needs to be replaced—especially in the East Building.
