    My child went to Blue Heron Elementary which was wonderful! I thought CMS would be ran very simular. Not what I expected at all! CMS is probably a good school if you have a child who challenges themselves that is very organized and self disciplined. This school makes no effort to help or stay on top of those who are not. I was very disappointed in the " the student has to want it" approach. It's also a very gossipy school both students and staff. Privacy and tact aren't their strong suit. The principal shows no leadship qualities rather deligates his duties to other staff members. Hope it improves!

    I think the school is awesome we moved from St Paul to Centennial and my son was already behind. Centennial curriculum was already ahead of St Pauls and in just one year he caught up and is doing awesome. I definitely recommend the school to everybody

    I am a graduate of Centennial High School and I am very proud to admit it. Centennial was a great school when I was growing up and I have no doubts that it still is. The teachers were dedicated and knowledgable there were many electives to choose from and the environment was safe. It offered great opportunites and I took them. Centennial prepared me very well for my future. I am now a teacher and love it! Thank you.

    Our child has had nothing but trouble these past two years. Her grades fell dramatically but at no time were we contacted about this very poor communication. We are searching out private schools for this reason.

    My son has attended CMS for the past two years and loves the environment. Each grade (6-8) has it's own wing. The teachers are all very dedicated and go out of their way to communicate and work with students and parents.
