Centennial High School Reviews

By a Current Student on

I am a current student at Centennial High School. I would recommend this school to any parent seeking a school for his or her child to attend. The test scores are phenomenal for one thing. For another, our athletic program is outstanding. The head QB on our varsity football team... is going to attend USC on a full football scholarship after his season this year. Mr. Nixon, the head football coach at CHS, has been a great coach to kids like Cody. He has the ability to see the potential in everybody, even if it appears to be hidden. My last point: There is ZERO tolerance for fighting and/or drug and alcohol use, and when I say ZERO tolerance, I mean none whatsoever. We have a police man on our campus daily, and we have plenty of security personnel. I can honestly say I feel safe at school and it's a place I love to be.
