Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Love, Love, Love this school!!! The staff is great; super kind and helpful. The teachers really take time to work with students that may be struggling. The school has high expectations for their students but they go the extra step and help guide students to meet and exceed those expectations. There is a reason that this school is so highly rated!!!!!

Centennial is a great school to go to. It has an outstanding IB program along with AP and honors programs. Almost every sinlge student is involved with clubs or sports. Centennial is a school that I highly recommend going to .

Very disappointed with the leadership and their representatives in this school and their lack of concern with the students academic achievements. Safety is not a priority with this school or the leaders. This is disheartening. Parent involvment is needed.

Centennial High School has an amazing amount of extracurricular focus. They excel in speech and debate, mock trial, academic decathalon, as well as being state champions in volleyball, and having an excellent football, baseball, and basketball team. The honors program at Centennial is very big, which has its benefits and its downfalls. The benefits include a wide base of opinions from thinking students that your honors child can bounce thier opinions off of. It also means that your child will have a large group of people to choose thier friends from, all who excel in school, promote educational values, and hold thought out opinions about the world. The downfall of this large honors class is that your honors child won't get as much attention as the honors kids from smaller highschools recieve. The teachers at Centennial (especially the those in the honors program) are engaging and will challange your student.

As a parent of a student who graduated from Centennial, I give my full support and appreciation to the leadership and staff at Centennial. My daughter just graduated from a major university and found that her education at Centennial prepared her in every way for college and life. Living in Bakersfield, I would not send my children to any other high school.

Obviously Centennial has many improvements to make, but as a soon-to-be graduate, I feel that Centennial is in the top 3 strongest schools in Bakersfield. It has a strong academic record, a nationally recognized We the People team, and is a powerhouse for sports. The rating on here is not nearly as representative of the atmosphere at Centennial as it should be.
