Centennial Elementary School Reviews
If you are considering this school or even the district DON'T. Save yourself the grief and the frustration. I have had 6 years of frustration with this poor performing school and district. There is a reason why Sonoran Science Academy has a huge waiting list as no parents that care about their kids are happy with this school district. If I could afford to put my child in private school I would. Dr. Patton, the principal, allowed the 6th grade to not be prepared for testing this year. They do not know the material for the aims test, there are huge behavioral issues, and the teacher turn over is high. These words come straight from Flowing Wells District Administrators. They need better administrators and leadership across the board as they are failing the children. RUN from this school district and stay away from it. If I could give this school and district a negative grade I would. It never used to be this bad either. The district has gone down hill in the last 7 years or so and its sad. You can not get parents to stand up as a group because most are too poor and just trying to to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. They don't have time to worry about the district.
Teachers don't care about educating their students. This is supposed to be a high level school but 2 months into the school year and this teacher has missed more than 6 days and seems like she expects the kids to learn from the sub.
This school needs to clean house like TUSD did to remove the teachers that don't prove to be beneficial to students.
My opinion is open enroll your kids in a different district like Marana or amphi.
