Centennial High School has such a warm feeling from the moment you walk through the doors. It's apparent that the teachers there want to see their students succeed, as the continually take personal time to stay after or come in before school to help struggling students. The only thing that would have made my high school career here better was if there was more chances to get involved with our community. There are some clubs that focus on that, but I feel like they need to get promoted more frequently to the students.

Through Centennial High School I have seen and experienced a large array of excellent teachers and staff members who work toward making a personal connection with the students along the journeyy of aiding them not only through high school but also into their future careers and schooling whatever it may be. The only issue I would say there is to Centennial is that many of the extra curriculars go underfunded and the same may be said about the school itself. Despite the lack of funding although, Centennial does a great job working with what it has to provide the best possible learning experience.
I really enjoyed going to centennial high school. I am currently alumni, and graduated almost 20 years ago now, but it was a great place to learn, and there were many activities to participate in. The choir and the drama programs were the best! That was due to amazing teachers as well.
