Centennial High School is an excellent high school that demonstrates academic excellence as well as amazing school pride. This school has staff that cares so much about the students at Centennial. Being at this school has taught me about confidence and striving to succeed towards my goals. It is different than other schools because of the honor and respect each student has for each other. Everyone at Centennial works towards their academic goals as well as other extracurricular activities to be more involved in Centennial spirit. In my opinion, Centennial has been so great so far, and everything every staff, student, and parent are doing, all helps to make Centennial the best it can be! Go Coyotes!
Centennial is a welcoming environment for students. The staff works hard to hear out students and parents then make adjustments to help prepare for post-secondary success. The staff truly cares about student's opinions and mental health and their role in that. The environment is clean and spirited. I as a student feel safe and supported. There are resources to help students find what life path will be the best fit for them and what they need to do in school to help them be best prepared. However, even with some of these helpful tools it can be hard to find them and get the help you need. Another downfall is the sports programs. There is high turnover for coaches leaving athletes at a disadvantage for learning and growing. There is also little support with helping students to know what their options are for pursing athletics in college and how to set themselves up for success. Overall, Centennial is a great school with a positive environment that is conducive for learning and growing.
