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!

Overall, Centennial was a great place for me to experience my high school career. The number of classes I was able to choose from was very extended and the teachers at Centennial have been very dedicated to their students' education. I have not had a class or teacher that I have not liked. With the numerous positives about the school, I would like to see more diversity in the
food options as they have become very limited in the past few years. On top of that, most of the bathrooms have had issues with either mistreatment or being somewhat disregarded. Centennial has provided the safest environment that it is capable of and has had a massive increase in the administration's quality over the four years of my attendance.
As an incoming freshman on campus it's understandable and expected of you to be nervous and scared. I know that I was one of the hundreds of freshman on campus who felt this way my first day of high school, it's different. But at Centennial, they make you feel at home, they make you apart of 'The Pack'! Centennial has been the best place for me in my four years of highschool, friendly people, welcoming teachers, amazing sports and activities and a warm place to always feel welcome. An 'A' rated school is an understatement, as a student you understand that classes can be hard but at Centennial everyone is there to help, no one wants to see you fail, they want to see you grow! Academics and Activities, friends and fellow Coyotes, Centennial is more than a school, we are a pack.
