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.

Centennial High School, overall, was an amazing experience for me. I learned so much about myself, the world, and people- life knowledge that goes beyond what's taught in the classroom. Every teacher and administrator truly wanted to make CHS the best school possible for kids from all different backgrounds, and the diversity of the student body was refreshing and unique. I will be sad to leave this spring when I graduate!
Centennial High School has allowed me to be adequately prepared for college. There are so many classes to include any interest a student has, and if there is not a club already in place for your interest the teachers and administration are more than happy to help start it. Centennial offers numerous AP classes to help students compete for top ranked colleges. The school spirit and support from students is seen in the large student sections for our sports teams. There has been so many amazing and fun opportunities that have come my way through Centennial and I could not have asked for a better high school experience here. Go cougars!
