Centennial High School is an amazing school - beyond the academics. There is always a way to get more involved on campus with such a large variety of organizations and clubs. From wanting to learn about agriculture to health to business to anime, there’s something for everyone! The one thing I wish they would change is the social activities the school provided in comparison to other high schools I have seen. Besides this, the teachers and faculty are all so kind and caring and will do anything they can to make you feel at home. Join an organization and become a leader - I was personally involved with DECA, BPA, CSA, NHS, Key Club, Cash Club, and a few more. Centennial DECA truly changed my life, not only did it give me a passion for finance, but it taught me leadership skills, a major source of happiness, and people to call family. Find what makes you happy like DECA did for me, and trust me, Centennial will provide that! Finally, enjoy your time here, it goes by before you know it!

As a senior, I believe that there are several things that CHS has to offer to students who are looking to go beyond what is expected of them. There are several classes offered to students with more to come every year. Moreover, teachers who teach Advanced Placement classes are often not just great teachers but also great human beings. One can expect a friendly environment at this school when they talk to the administrative staff or the teachers on campus. I think that student bonding with teachers is seen a lot on this campus, and extracurricular activities are almost always encouraged in this school, with the plethora of clubs created almost every year. Although there is still room for improvement, there is no such thing as the perfect school, but Centennial High School comes closer and closer to their expectations every year.
Frisco ISD in general has a very good reputation. Centennial High School lives up to that reputation. I have been here all 4 years and my brother is a Sophomore here and we both love it! I have played soccer for Centennial all 4 years of high school, winning State my Freshman year. The support of the school and community in general is something I will never forget. When I was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, the school (my counselor, teachers, 504 coordinator, principal) all met with me and my mom and we all came up with a plan to make sure my educational needs were met. The student-teacher ratio is smaller so it allows for more one-on-one interaction with the teacher and they are able to help ensure I get the best education I can get. I love the atmosphere, the sports, the teachers, my friends! I am so happy to be here at such a wonderful school and I will miss it terribly when I graduate in June 2019.
