My kids have been at Centennial for the past 2 years and we have loved every moment. We moved from the San Francisco Bay Area in California and Centennial is miles above what we experienced there. The arts programs are robust and the academic standards are impressive. None of our 3 kids has had a bad teacher. Students leave 5th grade prepared to enter middle school and succeed. I love how my kids feel special and valued by their teachers. Class sizes are reasonable, facilities are new and gorgeous, teachers are dedicated, compassionate, and very competent. From the office staff to the educators, you know these people care about your kids. Rivals the best private schools.

My 6yr old has been in Mrs. Crouch's class for kindergarten this year and we're getting ready to have to move. I am DREADING leaving this school :( While I don't have any other children who've attended here, he has loved every minute of it and the staff is exceptional... and I'm a picky mom who was contemplating homeschooling. I HIGHLY recommend this school. The ONLY "iffy" thing that has bothered me is the way they do afternoon pickup. It's confusing for both the parents and kids. Otherwise, it's phenomenal school with wonderful people!!

My family has been a part of Centennial since its opening in 2007. I have consistently been amazed at the level of teacher dedication, administrator support, and parental involvement. The children receive excellent core teaching while also being exposed to art, music, and physical education. The teachers are knowledgeable and experienced, and their love for their students is obvious. Furthermore, I must brag specifically on the fifth grade teachers who work tirelessly to prepare their kids for middle school. They offer a team teaching approach and provide many extracurricular field trips from which the students learn and enjoy. Centennial is a beautiful, well kept school that rivals both public and private schools in the area!. We are very blessed to be a part of such a fantastic school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science and writing. The OCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
