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!

I have had a great experience at Centennial! So far, there have been no problems. I am involved in cross country and track, which has been great. The communication between the school and the families has been great. It has helped that they have several twitter accounts, and the principal sends out a daily reminder email. I am excited for the years to come at Centennial!
The first thing you'll notice when you walk onto campus is pride! You're in Cougar Nation, and whether it it's sports or yearbook they're confident and believe that they can achieve. As far as teachers go they are great. Even though they have over 150 students daily, they remember your name, your academic history, but also your personality. They will help you succeed in the smaller things, like passing a hard test, but also with the bigger things, like how to get into your dream college. Everyone is ambitious, whether it's in academics or athletics. Everyone is passionated about something. It's pride and ambition that makes us bond with students with common interests, and it's very rare that someone gets left behind.
