    I have a child that attended Centennial Elementary School last year. He had an amazing experience being educated by such wonderful knowleagable teachers. They were always willing to help with any subject he was struggling with. Centennial was the best place for my child.

    I currently have a 5 year old enrolled at Centennial Elementary. He enjoys school so much that he has made significance growth since being here. He started learning to read during the first six weeks. At this is in Pre-K. The teachers at the school are very helpful and knowledgeable. The teachers always make time for me even if it is at 4pm. The administration is great. They promote a positive environment that is conducive to learning.

    Wonderful school !!!!My daughter attends centennial I have taught in a few schools in Lubbock including this one- by far the best.. It is small with excellent staff who are very involved with the children- even the principal knows all thier names. As a treat the kids get to eat lunch with the principal in their room. I will miss this when she moves up. Good luck!!!

    My son loves it! The faculty is outstanding as well as the education experience that he is having. We moved here in July worried about how the transition would affect his grades no problems- straight A's! We love this school!
