16 Parent Reviews for Centennial High School

This school needs more teachers, security!! Every time I come to this school there are always students walking and it's not just 5 students there's more lets just say 15-20 in different directions. There needs to be security to tell these students to get to class. The school is just so unprofessional.

Centennial has come a long way. I remember a few years ago when it needed to pass accredidation- and it did. Everyone needs to put their components into making a school work. Blaming is easy, it's the self recongnition that's hard. Try that and Centennial can be just as great as other schools.

As a student at Centennial High, i think the parents and teachers need to get more involed and encourage us to do well. the school is also lacking on; desks, books, and school supplies. other than that we are doing great! we just need more support from parents, teachers, and students as well.

As a student at the big ten the school is doing real bad in every aspect that there is. There is a shortage of teachers, the principal shows no initiative, there is also a lack of school supplies ( school books, chairs and desks, computers, no library use, no computer use and also no copy machine use ...  Read more

When a school is under scrutiny from the state, the High School administration will begin documenting teachers to begin a paper trail on incompetent teachers, seeking to put focus on teacher commitment.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
