For the most part ineffective. The leadership doesn't seem to understand what is important and therefore, does not provide the leadership that the few skilled teachers need and lack ability to identify and hire.
Great schools must not be aware that Centennial currently is considered a failed school. Centennial is not transparent with its delivery or should I say non-delivery of quality instructions to all students. The school is considered a FOCUS SCHOOL, which means that for an average 3 years the school failed to meet standards above the district and state average.
The teachers always set good examples for kids to follow . Also,, the movies and the stories are carefully selected then it's followed by discussions about the values that had been shown in the stories.
This school COULD be a great school. Once upon a time it was family oriented and the leadership as well as the teachers cared very much for the full child. Unfortunately this past year after leadership hired some fantastic and some not so fantastic teachers they decided they didn't care what the parents thought and basically pushed us out of the door. This caused the teachers to work even harder to show the parents that we were welcome. If you could get to the classroom - you felt warmly welcomed by the teachers but you had to walk through the front door (BRRRR) and get to the classroom first. Hate the parents opinion doesn't matter anymore.
