This school has definitely been my favorite out of all the ones I've been to. Most of the teachers are great, and they really help you with academic support! One thing our school is very good at is arts! Centennial has the best orchestra in the state of Colorado!!
I really did not like this school. I came for the sixth grade and it was the worst school year I ever had. The students are very cliqy and also really snobby and mean. They always stay in their little groups never acknowledging anyone else. And u have to look a certain way to fit in. The teachers always pin the students against eachother , making it a difficult learning environment. don't go here if u have any differences . U will just completely disregarded or humiliated by the students
I am in 8th grade this year and I really like it. Some of the teachers are AMAZING and some are ok but I really love this school and have enjoyed going here for the past 3 years and yes there are some problems but over all in he area this is one of the best school and is just a great school. the teachers are really help full and supportive.
Horrible principal. (Rigid, uninformed). Staff seems afraid of this principal. (Staff will say something to you one-on-one but will not speak in front of her.) Bullying and complete division between spanish speakers and english speakers. (Girls on soccor team don't even acknowlege one another.) School is 100% out of compliance with Colorado State Law regarding TAG students. (No student has the mandated ALP.) Good school for bright or average, conforming, linear students. DO NOT send a student with any differences here. They will be treated like a psychiatric patient.
This school Is not fun. I am an eighth grader and My experience of all 3 years has been awful. It's cliquy and the school is a DUMP. Please, If your child is in 5th grade and she/he wants to go here, discourage them.
On 12/9/11 my son's basketball teammates were bullied by the Centennial team after their game on Angevines way to their waiting bus. The Angevine team was called derogatory names by the Centennial team who instigated a fight. Incredibly bad sportsmanship by Centennial and a poor reflection on Centennial school.
Centennial is the Best School ever, most of the teachers have been teaching at CMS for more than 15 years. The math teachers are great and have helped me bring my c average in math to an A. The school clubs are awesome and you can always make friends. The drama and art electives are great you can take musical theater, 3D art it is so fun. You can only take French and Spanish but the teachers are great. The school has a large student body which makes it easy to make friends. I'm starting my last year in fall and each year just gets better I'm going to miss it so much!
Centennial provides a warm nurturing academic focus to my children, while giving them plenty of elective choices, so their education is varied and fun.
i went to this school last year. some teachers are good some are bad. overalll the student is kinda clicky and i was able to just quit on my 8 grade and still graduate but now in high school im failing.
Agreed... it was a rough first year.. it took all year to request testing but it is finally done and I am looking forward to 7th grade and a new start to a new year. Some teachers and Mr. Wright care and helped the most.
We have sent all three of our kids to Centennial Middle School and have been extremely impressed by the level of education our kids received as well as the dedication of the staff to getting our kids excited about learning. They were well prepared for high school.
I'm an 8th grader here and personally I think theres are sooooo many other choices that would be better for students. Theres soo much drama that goes on and girls that come out of this school always get a a bad reputation . Its only 2-3 months into the school year and im so unhappy that im switching to another school. ASAP.
My son is a 6th grader at Centennial and so far the experience has been positive. I am very impressed in how the administration has the transition set up from 5th grade to 6th grade. It has gone smooth and my son is extremely happy and loves his new school. The staff has been very supportive.
We moved to Boulder last year. I have 2 children at Centennial and have been extremely disappointed in the lack of involvement by the administration. My children are bright, but I had to insist that my kids be tested to participate in the advanced classes. (They were in advanced classes prior to attending Centennial) Socially, the school is very cliquish. Parent participation is minimal. Overall, it has been a disappointing experience.
