    Overall I love Century Elementary! My kids love going to the school. However over the last few years it seems all the extra activities have disappeared. They used to participate in the annual egg drop pumpkin walk running in the halls (a treat for students who read!) Grandparents days Parents and Pastries and there is a lot more. The principal is...well...detached. He seems to not follow through with things and likes to deny any request before hearing anything out. They used to send home weekly folders put together by parent volunteers as well as a monthly newsletter (which have both disappeared as well). The parent volunteers have decreased over the years it seems lack of communication is part of that? Not sure what is happening but hopefully the school can get back to where it was 7-8 years ago.

    I like the school's anti-bulling policy. Bullying is still attempted by the students at times but the staff nip it in the bud which creates an overall safe learning environment.

    My sweet children have only been attending since 2008 but I have been extremely pleased with the presiding principals. They care about the kids currently attending and all the ones to come. My kids adore them! They teachers rock!!! I have had children in all the grade levels and you can't go wrong. My children have enjoyed learning and will carry what they have learned so well here to the intermediate school middle school and high school and will be better students for it. I LOVE IT AND SO DO MY KIDS!

    My children have all attended Century. I think the principal currently at our Century school needs to be friendlier to our students and parents. It appears she is there to fulfill the needs of our superintendent and not the students.

    this school is great all of my children have attended here HOWEVER it has declined significantly since the change of principals 2 years ago. The new principal is very standoffish where as the one before was very personable and likeable. I wish we could have him back. Box Elder School District is a great place for kids and Century is one of the best schools in it.
