Lacks school spirit, but most of the teachers are nice and go out of their way to help students learn. Most of the kids are either rednecks, gothic/emo, beach bums, or extremely obsessed with their looks. It's not the best school in anyway and the principal could take more suggestions into consideration. The food is good, most kids are friendly, and new students beware because most of these kids have been friends since diaper days. The drama department always has plays but they're not spectacular. LOTS of AP courses and honors classes are always filled. The counselors could be better/kinder to students. AND THE NURSE! Oh wow she's awful, I felt sick during lunch and didn't want to leave during class because I didn't want to miss anything but she told me to wait until after lunch and return during 5th period. What?? I should miss class only to have you tell me im fine and send me back?! Besides all the obvious issues with this school, the education is great, and I guess that's all that matters anyways because it is a school. A poorly operated school.
I've gone to St. Lucie West Centennial for 2 years so far. It's an okay school. Most of my teachers have been great, and they make learning fun. Some of the teachers don't seem to feel like teaching and then expect the students to know things. I'm in honors classes and all i ever hear is 'you should know this, you're honors!' I dislike that a lot. I'm a sophomore and I don't understand the importance of our dress code. if you're sending kids out of class because they don't have a polo shirt on or its the wrong color, they're not learning anything that day! or at least they miss things. I follow the dress code, but it doesn't make any sense. It is a good school overall, though.
Although Centennial is not the best school, I thoroughly enjoy going there and do not regret my choice in choosing the school. Since Sophmore year, i have been in Advanced Placement Classes with exellent teachers who put there students before themselves. Though I have witnessed a few teachers that hand out grades and do not teach, these teachers are more there to baby sit the students. If a student does not feel the need to come to school or challenge themselves to do better, why should the school board care? The staff can get a little bit out of hand with dress code, attacking boys with untucked shirts rather than females with cleavage showing or short shirts but no other discrimanations are made.They also manage to keep every one safe to the best of there ability. With one or two close friends, you can have 4 great years of
