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.

Teachers in the upper-level courses are great. At centennial, they offer a lot of AP classes and Honors classes as well as IB courses. There is a lot of diversity both in race and ideas. There is also probably a club for anything. There are a lot of fights too!
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 .
