Success
Centennial has had success in helping students transition from the elementary to the high school experience.   The Wolf Pack (homeroom) is a place where students develop relationships with a close peer group and a significant adult advocate.   Wolf Packs average twenty-one students for each adult mentor.

Centennial works to meet the needs of academically and ethnically diverse student population.
