Handles bullying effectively: Disagree

Most teachers just turn a blind eye, even if it occurs in their classroom or right in front of them.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Fights, gangs, and drug use run wild.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

We (the students) are constantly correcting teachers as they teach us incorrect material. Most of the time, we know more than they do and if we don't understand something, we have to learn it on our own, as teachers just repeat the same thing, just louder.



- a
Centennial is definitely not a safe environment for learning. Fights break out often and there are lots of drug sales on the grounds. Most teachers there seem to just read from the book (if they "teach" at all) and students have to go and learn the material on their own time.

Centennial is the best kept secret in North Fulton County! Opportunities for all students to thrive in education and sports. Centennial had the highest number of early admission to UGA of all North Fulton Schools for the last two years! 2016 Centennial will offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) program only one of two North Fulton schools to offer this very sought after program! Great teachers, great location!

My son just finished his freshman year - amazing teachers who are truly dedicated to our children. My son was involved in band and sports as well. The administration and coaches are so supportive. The best part is the learning! All around academics were a win. Proud to be a Knight!



- a
Centennial teachers and administration are focused on improving education for all the students at this school, providing opportunities unlike any other high school in the area. For example, International Baccalaureate is coming to CHS in the next couple of years - the school is in the process of getting accredited.



- a
Offers an excellent environment for education by offering honors and advanced placement classes in all areas of study but with a focus on Science and Math.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Most teachers at the school are very effective, focusing on mastery of the content over memorization.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Some classes, particularly AP, have too much, while most are just right. That said, the AP classes with a lot of homework do prepare the students well for success on the AP exam.
