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).

I love that centennial is very diverse and it promotes positivity. Centennial sets a good example for not only many people but every school around us. Without wanting to be cocky, Centennial is one of the best schools in CNUSD because of everything it offers and all the opportunities students have at this school. Students at this school have the opportunity to be themselves not only for the school but for themselves and they get the opportunity to show who they really are. Students get the opportunity to represent their school and participate in fun, exciting activities like pep rallies and they assemblies in which students dress accordingly to their class color. Students also get involved by being in clubs and being able to create their own clubs as well. Overall Centennial High School is a safe place for all students and their well being.
I was in the IB Program at Centennial High School and my experience was mostly positive. I had some pretty great teachers that I knew cared about me and were passionate about their subjects and also had some bad teachers, which balanced it out. The IB Program provided me with some rigorous coursework and the small classes allowed me to be surrounded by other motivated, college and career-oriented students, which was a plus. Centennial really promoted the positives of their IB Program, but as an alumni of the program, I didn't really feel like the administration really cared for the program as much as the sports programs. I felt like all of the funds and attention was directed toward the sports programs, specifically the football team.
However, Centennial does offer a variety of clubs and a diverse body of students with a very spirited culture. Getting involved in multiple clubs helped me feel more connected to the community and meet other students and friends with similar interests.
