Centennial High School

CHS opened its doors in the fall of 2010 with only 750 students. Today we have over 1700 students and offer a wide range of classes designed to meet the needs of today's learners.

Principal's Ponderings

We have one more school week before the Thanksgiving Break. Please talk with your student about making sure they are in attendance, on time to each class, and then while there, doing everything possible to achieve the highest grade.


We look forward to a week long break (Nov. 20th-24th)! We are thankful for the entire Spartan Community!

There are several reasons that attendance is a primary focus of any school. The primary factor is that attendance has a direct correlation to achievement. When students are not in class, they cannot learn the material being taught. Over time, absences can add up and may cause a student to lose credit for the class either by not passing the course or by missing more than the State allows. We hope that everyone will make attendance at school a priority.
