Like every high school, Centennial had it's ups and downs. Looking back on it now, it had mainly good things. In 2016, the community aspect was at an all time high for the school. Centennial was all over news articles for how great their student section was at football games. We were beating the rival football team or the first time in years! During those glory years, I was the news girl. Usually that doesn't go well in the stories. But it really didn't feel like I was the"new girl." The majority of students who attended were just good people, and I believe that is because of the leadership that was there. The principle, Dr. Webb, kept everybody in line and behaving. Not because she was mean or anything, but it was because nobody really wanted to disrespect her. Most of the teachers were REALLY good at their jobs. We learned and we had fun. The teachers truly wanted to see us succeed.
I am so blessed that I got to attend and graduate from Centennial High School!

At Centennial High School, the teachers (at least those that teach Advanced Placement courses) are very involved, encouraging, and want to help you learn! They will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in the classroom and make sure you are understanding the material. However, I found the administration and counseling staff to be very frustrating at times; I would ask simple questions about scholarships, dual enrollment, and the different types of diplomas one can obtain, and it was a headache to receive any answers, and if I did, they differed across the staff. Overall, it was a great place to receive education, but if you wanted your school to go above and beyond, it could be hard to accomplish.
Great high school experience! The student is big enough that you can make lots and lots of friends, but also small enough that you don’t feel lost in the crowd. I had some absolutely wonderful teachers who truly cared about the happiness and future success of their students. My teachers encouraged me and challenged me to be the mechanical engineer I am today. The school was very clean and well kept and always stocked with the latest technology. I had a fantastic high school experience and I would recommend Centennial to anyone considering attending.
