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!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
