Centennial High School Reviews

I felt that the majority of my work was busy-work, not meant to teach but to occupy my time. The campus itself was very large, and the shorter passing periods did not allow for restroom usage between periods especially with classes across campus from each other. The lockers were well sized, they fit all of my textbooks easily and could hold a packed lunch. The school environment was positive from my perspective, the size of the school kept the events from being all-inclusive, for example: ASB passes out food/goodies to 'all' students who have purchased memberships, but the times were not advertised well and supplies would run out before even half of the students could receive the item. For the food, they do not have nutritious vegetarian options! At the time, it was not shown that the burritos had traces of pork, which made me ill. The only options are fruit parfait and cheese pizza. Neither have much appeal (the pizza lacks protein and the parfait is overly sweetened).

My time at Centennial High was extremely memorable and full of growth! Being involved in through sports, clubs and academics my school was extremely beneficial for my personal development.
The part that most people love about Centennial is the diversity and spirit of its students. We all come from such complex and diverse ethnic, religious, etc. backgrounds, and students and faculty always manage to invite every story and accept them with open arms. The spirit of the school is undeniably undefeated. Whether it's football games, spirit weeks, school dances or finals week, students always find the brighter or brightest sides of it all. What I would love to see improve is the college readiness. Allowing all students to enroll in programs like AVID is so beneficial to them, since a majority of those students cannot access college readiness programs elsewhere.
