Centennial High School Reviews

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.

As a student of CHS, I appreciated the format of the curriculum for honors and AP courses. I liked that the curriculums not only covered content in an understandable format but also the extra resources such as tutoring and teacher aid that made achieving academic success possible. I can speak for myself and my peers when I state that having resources to understand course material outside of class truly helps with achieving academic success. Many times concepts are not able to be learned instantly in a short class period and extra study help is very valuable. I also liked the A Day and B day structure of Centennial High School. This prevented me from becoming overwhelmed by my course load especially when I had extra-curricular activities and programs to participate in.
Frisco ISD, let alone, is a strong and successful school district. Centennial High School’s staff and faculty go above and beyond to ensure that every student performs to their highest ability. Throughout my 4 years, I have learned leadership capabilities that will be useful for the rest of my life. Although there are many schools within Frisco ISD, Centennial does an excellent job of ensuring the importance of our individual school when there are competitors within the district. I feel as if safety at the school is always high to best protect students. I have always felt welcomed and was never afraid to go talk to my counselor when I was going through a lot this senior year. No matter race, religion, or political views in the diversity of the student body, I have only ever witnessed friendships and open minds within the differences. Lastly, I will be leaving Centennial confident that they will continue to be successful in academics, student involvement, sports, etc...
