Our mission at Centennial Junior High School is to encourage all students to learn, grow, have fun, and excel in a safe, supportive environment.”
Centennial Junior High School strives to create a positive, caring, and safe environment for all students. The staff at Centennial has high expectations for all students and prides itself on preparing students for high school and life. Our motto at Centennial is: Be Nice, Be Here Everyday, and Do Your Best.
Students are grouped together in grade level, interdisciplinary CORE teams (Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies), creating much smaller environments within the larger school. Each student’s CORE teachers meet frequently to plan instruction and better meet all students’ individual learning needs.
The mission at Centennial is to provide students with opportunities for success and to reach their fullest potential. Centennial strives to create a culture that focuses on academic excellence and the social-emotional needs of our students.
Centennial’s professional educators implement the common core and state standards. There is a strong emphasis on literacy, math and instructional strategies. Students have health and physical education and a choice of electives and exploratory courses including woods/drafting, metals, digital environment, leadership seminar, family and consumer science and Spanish. Fine and performing arts choices include art, vocal music, piano lab, band, orchestra, guitar and a unique after school drama/spring musical program. While all teachers differentiate instruction in classrooms, all students also benefit from 30 minutes of remediation, or enrichment five days per week to meet their individual needs. Additional academic supports include Extended Day for help with language arts and math, Summer Bridges, tutoring, special needs classes, math and literacy lab support and assessment correction/retakes.
Centennial has a peer mentor program that groups selected eighth-graders with sixth- graders for planned activities and peer support. Other activities include Art
Club, Drama, Centennial Singers, Tech Club, Geography Club, National Junior Honor Society, Jazz Band, Spanish Club, Student Council, Yearbook Club and Robotics Club. Students also may participate in a full range of athletics.
