The diversity is absolutely amazing. Just seeing how involved the teachers are with students is very assuring. The programs available are very unbiased and custom made for each individual. The different career paths that are introduced to the students really allows for us to explore every aspect. The faculty are always wanting the best for their pupils and are like family. They always strive for us to reach the best and encourage us to learn as a passion. It is not a job for them, but the teachers do it to shape the future generation as best as possible. I have only been there for a year, yet I can say I look forward to the rest of my three years there.

Centennial, despite the reputation in the media, is an amazing school. The teachers will go above and beyond to help you; the facilities are falling apart, which is a shame. Overall, I would recommend this school to anyone!
Centennial is an outstanding academic school and very diverse. My 4 years there were definitely the best years of my life, I participated in the chess program, football program, basketball, and track. My grades weren't amazing but they weren't that bad either, my teachers did their best to prepare us for college and the real world.
