Centennial High School Reviews
Rating 3.58 out of 5 224 reviews
I had a lot of good experiences in specific groups such as band and swim team. I feel like the administration of the school did a lousy job attending to the needs of students. In terms of recognition, the school did a terrible job of recognizing some of the smaller clubs or activities and instead focused on the stereotypically popular sports such as basketball or football. In band we would get very little recognition despite playing at almost every single assembly, football game, basketball game, and more.
For 3 years so far being part of the school, I've come to enjoy the culture and diversity around with the school. It's well open to all students alike and easier to get along with each other. The teachers are chill to students but also somehow makes most people motivated to focus in class while having fun learning. Of course, you'd have to work hard and study well to get the teachers' respect for you, which shouldn't be too much of a big deal in my personal opinion. There are many classes for different subjects too, and many sports and clubs for every students' interests outside of the learning environment. One thing I do wish the school could change though is their lunches. Some lunches from the school is a hit or miss at most cases and really, most people tend to buy their food from vending machines or at fast food places. Regardless of the food situation, I really enjoy and love the school's environment and hopefully, you will too if you decide to go there!
Overall my experience was pretty good, the reason for that was the diversity of the school and the many groups, clubs, & people. The problem with centennial is the facilities there were some parts of the school that needed to be fixed, but never were. The bathrooms are not even worth going in to, & lastly the administration that had put some really horrible rules that made no sense, what I've heard of recently after I've graduated even sounds worst.
