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!

CHS is an amazing school that may now finally have a chance to come out of the dark shadow that politics have held over it for so long. The lies and negativity have been confronted by a great principal and the school has a bright future ahead.
