Centennial High School Reviews
I am on the fence at this time. I've seen some improvements by way of the maintenance of the school, however we are still way off in academics. My daughter seems to enjoy attending Centennial which is also extremely important to me.
Centennial High School has a new set of coaches leading the football team that actually has seen an improvement already! My son is excited to go to practice and feels that they truly care in a school where that is really hard to come by. For the first time, our football team may have a chance! Thanks to Coach Nolan & T!
