Centennial is a great school to attend. What ever your child wants to be or really not sure Centennial will lead your child in that direction. What i like about the school is the setting is for what ever your child wants to be after high school. For example if your child wanted to be in the medical field they have a class that is set up like a clinic, hospital, etc.. or if the child wanted to be a lawyer or a cook etc... If your in the Burleson area get in the district for Centennial High

First year for CHS, and having moved from out-of-state, we have been pleased so far. The environment and expectations for behavior have been high, and my son enjoys most of his teachers. The faculty and coaches took a person interest in my son, who is not an outstanding athlete.
