“Whatever it takes; make learning happen.”

Vision: Centennial Junior High School will prepare all students to be successful citizens in our community by:

– engaging students academically with high expectations

– developing character to encompass leadership, responsibility, and respect. 

Students will become the best versions of themselves.

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. 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.

 

Programs

Centennial’s professional educators implement the common core and state standards. There is a strong emphasis on literacy, math and instructional strategies.

All Centennial sixth-grade and seventh-grade students take an additional semester of math and language arts in “extension classes.” These classes provide additional support in current grade level standards while providing a foundation in the following year’s standards.

Students have health and physical education, including the opportunity to take Hunter Safety and an adventure program with a high ropes course. We also provide a choice of electives and exploratory courses including woods/drafting, metals, family and consumer science, Spanish, Leadership Seminar, and Digital Environments. Fine and performing arts choices include two different art classes, vocal music, piano lab, band, orchestra, guitar, and exploring music. While all teachers differentiate instruction in classrooms, all students also benefit from a built in 20 minutes of classroom intervention in each block. Each day begins with a homeroom dedicated to progress monitoring, social emotional curriculum and setting students up for success in their other classes. Additional academic supports include Extended Day for help with academic needs, summer school, tutoring, special needs classes, math, and literacy lab support and assessment correction/retakes.

 

Activities

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, Anime Club, Archery Club, Drama, Centennial Singers, Tech Club, Jazz Band, Orchestra Strings Club, Spanish Club, Student Council, Yearbook Club, and Robotics Club. Students also may participate in a full range of athletics.
