Centennial High School Reviews

My freshman through juniors years I was a victim of bullying at a different school also in Georgia. I made the decision to transfer my senior year to Centennial, my local public school, and it was the best decision I've made in my 18 years. Here at Centennial I feel welcomed and at home. People are not mean or judgmental, they're accepting and appreciate everything the students bring to offer. The administration and the teachers are nice and involved, and there are certain traditions that only Centennial boasts. For example, every morning our principal will come on the announcements, and say her trademark phrase, "Our best days are ahead! Go Knights!" If anything could be changed about Centennial, it would just be to have more resources. Sometimes the bathrooms don't have toilet paper or paper towels or soap, in any of the bathrooms in one hall. We also had a mild paper crisis, where the teachers had to ration their paper in case Fulton County was not able to provide more eventually.

I love the diversity our school has! The school has students from all over the world. Over all the school is nice and throughout all four years i had fun. The school engages most of the kids to participate in some kind of an activity or a club or a sport. Also maybe a better and healthier style of food in the cafeterias. Something that i would like to see changed is some of the bathrooms might need a little renovation and also longer lunch. Some of the lockers need a little upgrade as well. Other then that the school doesn’t need anything else .
Centennial High School is a melting pot of students from various backgrounds and lifestyles. It's divided into students who value the importance of education to students who want to put on a show. Adding on, teachers are either a hit or miss. Some teachers are dedicated to their job and collaborate with their students in order for them to succeed. On the other hand, some teachers become the background of the classroom and are only there to take attendance. Overall, Centennial High School can improve in their education department as well as their discipline.
