This is our first year and we have four children attending, grades K, 2, 4, and 6. Each of them love their teachers. The teachers are like their cheerleaders. My children feel supported and encouraged to do well in their work and in doing the right thing. As a bonus, the principal knows them by name and is always friendly with the students as he walks around campus. He is not one to sit and watch or stay locked away in his office (we've dealt with one of those kind at another elementary school, not fun). The teachers constantly communicate with their students' parents so that we know what is being covered and what is coming up. We are so grateful to be at such a caring school.

My son has attended Centennial Elementary from Kindergarten through 6th grade. He has had excellent teachers and an excellent front office staff. The current principal seems involved and concerned, though in honesty we have had/needed little contact with her. We moved from the Panorama area of Bakersfield to the NW specifically to find better schools for our son. We feel completely satisfied that we have achieved our goals.

Centennial Elementary is a wonderful school for our children. The staff cares about our children and the administration is excellent! We moved into this area just so our children could attend Centennial. Thank you Centennial!!

Centennial has caring staff that works cohesively to help each child maximize what they can do. A variety of teaching methods are used and students are encouraged to try a variety of activities.

My two children have attended Centennial Elementary for two years and we have been pleased with the education. I do wish there were more strict with drills and helping the kids get more depth than breadth in many areas of study but that is true with all California schools I have seen. Principal leadership is excellent.
