    This is a school that does so much to help children who are struggling to learn. They have an excellent program to help these children.

    My child attended Centennial from Kindergarten through 6th grade. He always felt safe enjoyed each and every teacher and received a lot of help when he needed it. His teachers worked hard to provide a solid education and the discipline and manners of the students at this school are the finest around. the building is always neat and clean and very well taken care of. The students and teachers are proud of this school and it shows! There are not a lot of programs or opportunities for advanced students but for a solid all around program it's great!
