  • Recommended October 11, 2010 - Centennial is a wonderful school that we have been lucky to send 2 students to. The school spirit is unmatched, the academics are excellent, the teachers are wonderful, and the new principal (Dr. Brown) is amazing. Our children are college bound, 30+ ACT scores. We wouldnt consider any other school. THANK YOU CHS! - Posted by Parent
