School Reviews

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!
