Centennial High School 3

I was not entirely discouraged with my time here, but I was not impressed either. The students are initially friendly, but once class starts, a large handful can be very disrespectful to staff members, and there are obvious cases of drama that are often not dealt with properly. Unless there is a fight or a screaming match, many will be too lenient by just telling them to sop and leaving it at that. For this reason, I do not recommend this school to ANY person prone to drama on a regular basis. There has also been many cases of severe over crowding during lunch and to the point where it does not comply with restrictions set by the local fire marshal at my time here. The teachers do the best they can at their job with what they have, and they deal well with whatever cards they're dealt.

Teachers are great you can actually get to know them. I never got bored in school. Students are friendly, and so are teachers and counselors. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Centennial high school is great. Many extra curricular activities to help students success in school and post school. I was a 2006 graduate. Indeed the school is over crowed, but this something that can not be change since the budget continue to cut every year. WE have to understand, and the school has done everything that the could already to help the student. Talking about safety, I think any school near by our district is any safer than our school. School fight is normal, kids tend to fight, cause they are kids, right? I doubt if you can find a school that is fight free. Like some people said, the school is very supportive in many respect. For instance, when our FBLA student organization won the state 6A championship, our Principal donated $2000 for ten kidz to go to National, I was of them.

The school is overcrowded and dangerous. There were three fights the first month of the 2008 school year. Two of them were near my daughter's locker. Because of the overcrowding she finds it hard to get from one classroom to the other. All her life she has loved school but since coming to high school every morning when I drop her off she says 'I hate the %^%$**$ school.' She likes her teachers and she gets good grades, but she doesn't have to put out much effort at all to get her B+ average, so she is bored. She used to be a sweet kid but was picked on so much she had to toughen up and learn to shove back and curse back at other kids. Last year one senior girl tried to pick a fight with her because she didn't like my daughter's purse!

I think it is a great school now! It had its problems(2002-2004) but I think they are all worked out now(in my opinion).
