Centennial School District Reviews

I love Centennial and all the friendships and connections to teachers I’ve made. Centennial doesn’t have great funding but are doing a pretty decent job with what they have considering the low income majority of the school body. Some teachers are amazing, but some are very sub par. Centennial needs to listen to there students, because the teachers that do are the ones that thrive. Also need to improve college readiness. Overall a great community.

I am a very active student at Centennial High School. As a very diverse school, it is great to see many different culture and for me being Asian, surround by peers that share the same culture as I do. As being a part of student council, I had the privilege to interact with a mass amount of the people within the school. Throughout my whole high school journey, I've never really had an incident where I felt things were unfair or other people bully me. I was surrounded by teachers who cared about me and my education and people around me who appreciate who I was
My experience at Centennial High School was less than satisfactory. The education department lacks in attention to detail and the lives of students outside of school. I felt very alone in some of my classes, and it seemed as though many Centennial faculty was very lazy. Many powerpoints and videos were shown, information being spit at us with no analyzing or discussion. Teachers often over stepped their boundaries concerning punishment when breaking their rules. Centennial classes felt very economically motivated, and it seemed to me some teachers took the easy way out. The sports program at Centennial was very nice, and included many students. There was always a fair tryout, and for the most part, fair treatment and playing time provided by coaches. If I could suggest Centennial School District change anything, it would be quality of teachers and classes.
