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!!
We love Centennials very caring staff members. They are truly there for the children. They make you feel like family. My child learning experience has been a positive one. Thank you for all you do. :)
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.
