I knew a student who was supposed to be in special education due to extreme mental disability. She tried to get help for a long time from the school because she was failing every class due to her disability. She was instead punished for her bad grades and got nasty attitudes from teachers and staff. They eventually just kicked her out of the school. She was also relentlessly bullied by other students.

This school is very fun and has good academics. With a face lift this school would be on the top charts. We have many great activities such as our district champion football team and our number 5 nationally ranked NJROTC unit, or baseball team, and many other activities. No reason not to come to this school, so what are you waiting for? Come to Centennial and join the Eagle fan club!
