Centennial's learning environment has improved because there was a change in the leadership and many teachers were replaced. My freshman year up until my junior year Centennial's principal was Mr.Neal, that all changed my senior year when Mr.Holder became our new principal. Our academics and extracurriculars are highly encouraged by the staff at Centennial. Although, they could improve by recognizing sports such as Rodeo. Our geographical makeup is not very diverse and neither is the culture or clicks. The jocks and cheerleaders are the main focus, as of any school, but due to the over the funding of football, the agricultural department suffers. This has been improving and I hope that it only continues to strive for better after I graduate. Centennial does a good job of trying to prepare their students and tries to mold them into mold citizens.

Burleson ISD is a great school district! I feel we have the best teachers and our facilities are top notch. Mr Jimerson, our superintendent, is super nice and very involved at the schools. You will literally see him having lunch with the students at the high school at any given time. I am proud to be a student here, but if I could change anything it would definitely be the cliques. I realize every town has them, but I feel Burleson is such a tight knit community that it's very hard to be a new student that maybe came in later in their years or not a member of an already formed popularity group. I have gone to school here all my life, and while I know many people, I am not a part of the "popular" group because I do not play sports. Since that is such a huge part of the culture here, if you are not involved with that it can be very hard to form friendships.
STEAM Middle School is a great school. The teachers there are wonderful and they always give us different ways to learn what they teach. Since we have collaboration areas around the school I feel it is easier sometimes for us kids to learn and be comfortable with learning. A fun thing STEAM has done in our school has sorted the students into a house, like in Harry Potter. There are four houses and whenever someone does a good thing that they don't do often or nobody does they give the house that the student in points, whichever house has the most points by Friday of that week, they get free dress on Monday. If we are not in school Monday they get it on Tuesday. STEAM gives us trust cards. Trust cards are for students only, students use them to be able to go into collaboration area, the trust card has to be on the right six weeks most of the time and the teacher has to approve for you to go outside of the classroom. Overall this school is wonderful and the teachers are great. Have fun!
