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!

What I liked about Centennial High School was the diversity, I appreciated that I had the pleasure to meet so many people from different parts of the world. I had got the opportunity to get to know others cultures. I also loved the activities and recreational things I was able to involve in at school. I joined the mock trial club, the marching band, and the chess club it was all very pleasing and fun during my high school years.
I love how focused Centennial is on college readiness and making sure everyone graduates and if not pursuing college, at least has something to do after college. I would love if admistration(of Columbus city schools in general), food, and select teachers would improve.
