Centennial Middle School is a neighborhood school that proudly offers an accomplished instructional program, an exceptional staff, and personalized attention for our students. We hold all students accountable to high academic expectations and a rigorous curriculum. The fundamental goals that drive our curriculum are:
- Mastery of basic skills, i.e. reading, writing and mathematics
- Command of problem solving skills that underline success in the academic and real world
- Development of good study habits; exploration of different courses and activities
- Understanding one’s self and one’s relationship to others.
Components of the school include a strong emphasis on maintaining small class size and teaming of students. Centennial offers opportunity for accelerated learning in honors Language Arts, Mathematics and World Language. Talented and Gifted, ESL, At-Risk, and Academic Support services are available. Teachers and counselors meet weekly to have "kid talks" to discuss students academic and behavioral concerns. Parents are a welcome addition to these talks. A "No Place for Hate" program was instituted in the fall of 2009. Peer Mediation and conflict mediation services with school counselors are available. 360 Leadership is a trained group of eighth graders who mentor sixth graders. We also provide an array of extra curricular activities over and above the district offerings.
