That previous comment is the most racist/prejudice remark I've read so far here. So what if the school has a large percentage of Asians? How can you say Wilde Lake is diverse when there are exceedingly more African-Americans than other minorities. How can you also say that Wilde Lake is a better school when academically, it is doing far worse than Centennial? As a student, I have also never heard this term, 'Chentennial' amongst my peers. I believe Centennial is an excellent school for EVERYONE and deserves far more praise than the previous comment.
That last posting is appalling. I wish the person that posted that could have sent his/her daughter to another school too and make room for students who aren't raised by racist parents. Centennial continues to lead the county in test scores year after year. It is an excellent school regardless of the ethnicity of the students. I couldn't care less if my child was in a class full of polka dotted children as long as he is being challenged by his teachers and fellow classmates.
I feel that the school has too many asian students. I have heard rumors of people calling the school 'Chentennial' instead of Centennial. This is a redicule and I feel that in order to fix this problem, the school needs to be more diverse, like Wilde Lake. Wilde Lake is the most diverse school in the county and I feel that this school is the best out of them all. Mr. Whitaker is a wonderful principal, and I wish my daughter could have gone to that school like my son. I wish they never redistricted us. Thanks for your time. Good-night.
Centennial is a good school to graduate from but it is a school where the elitist attitude amongst the students is too high. Education there is great but the students are overall too spoiled to care about doing anything important in life. Athletically, there is some talent but no heart whatsoever. The extracurricular activities as a whole are good but students would not do them if their parents did not push them to. Every rumor about the kids being stuck up snobs is very true for these kids are completely useless without their parents demands.
Excellent programs; top quality academic preparation, most involved parents; challenged and challenging students - adds up to a high school preparation that will insure student success. Exceeds expectations which were high going in.
With the change in principal, Centennial can look forward to harmonious relationship with all faculty members, not just a few as it was in the past. The teachers are among the best I have ever seen.
There are some very involved and challenging teachers at Centennial. However, the administration is completely disorganized and at odds with the guidance counselors. This school needs to have a complete regime change. It's a shame that so many good kids and teachers can be so adversely effected by maladjusted and unchecked leadership.
My daughter is a sophomore this year and she loves Centennial High School. Most of the teachers are great, and the students are very kind and friendly. I think the school offers valuable challenges to help her gain the knowledge she will need to move on to college.
