    I love this school. I used to go to school in tampa and when I switched to Centennial there was a big difference. All of the teachers staff and students are overall better people. They are friendlier and more caring. Teachers will always give you oppotunities to get your grades up or help you if you are struggling with homework. There are so many great teachers I could mention but I would have a long list! There are many sports clubs and other activities you could get involved in. In my opinion this is the best middle school in pasco county! -A

    I got to say when my oldest daughter who is now in ZHS went to CMS I wasnt sure what to think since it wasnt the middle school primarily in zephyrhills. I was very suprised at how great that school is. The teachers principal and atmosphere of other students really can structure a childs life to work hard and not give up. My daughter went in as an average grade student to become almost a straight A student by the end of the 8th grade. Some teachers like Mr.Duda offered after school help in math for students that needed it! All the teachers pitched in to watch their students succeed! That is what this school is about "success"! I have 3 more children that are going to this school currently! There isnt any better middle school than CMS!
