Great teachers and principal. Great school culture, respect and responsibilty. Would definitely recommend and encourage more parents in the neighborhood to support this school.

Centennial is a wonderful school. The entire staff truly care about the success of every child. The support that the parents show to the staff is amazing. You feel a true understanding of community and commitment every time you enter the school. As a parent I feel welcomed by the teachers to participate in my child's education in and out of the classroom. Mr. Donnelly the principal always amazes me the first week of school he knows every child's name even the kinders and knows how to interact with each child and makes them feel that he cares.... Which he genuinely does!

The entire staff of Centennial Elementary is as fine a group of people as you will encounter anywhere. Their extent of caring and meeting student/parent concerns is outstanding. Their level of community spirit has always been exemplary.

I just have to say how wonderful all the teachers and staff are at centennial. They have been so great with my son for the last few years. They really care about the children and that is just the most reassuring thing to know.

They don't leave kids behind, but they let your child get board and do not challenge them when they are smarter then the others in their class. The teacher told us that everything my daughter knew was from learning at home, that in class they were not where she was yet, but they would not put her into a different grade where she could learn rather then be board in class. I took my daughter out and now we are homeschooling.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
