My oldest son just graduated from Centennial and my younger son and step daughter are attending now. I have found the teachers to be excellent and very caring. The programs offered are outstanding and the facilities are great. I was amazed at all the Honor graduates at graduation this past May. This is a true testament to the teachers and the parent involvement.

This school used to be great. That is, until the arrival of one Ms. Kibbey Cuntly.

Recently, Centennial has been getting some bad reviews for this past 2012-2013 school year, and I can't argue with them...most of it is true. One thing that I did notice is that all these complaints seem to come from parents of on-level students at Centennial. The fact of the matter is, if your child is an on-level class they will probably not enjoy it as much. One reason being the teachers performance but the main reason is because of the behavior of most of the students in on-level classes. They are so rude and disrespectful it literally prevents the teacher from teaching and keeps other students from learning. I am not in on-level classes in am entering 10th grade in 2 APS and 3 honors classes. This past year I was in honors classes and I was challenged and I had little to no trouble learning mostly due to the fact that I am surrounded by other students who WANT to learn and do well. I honestly feel that the problems that people are complaining about are due to behavioral issues. Some problems are because of teachers but not many. Don't bash Centennial because it's not good or it's ratchet...I find it exciting compared to some preppy private school or Johns Creek, etc.

Do not send your children here. It used to be one of the best schools in the state, but it is probably the worst on north fulton county. Many of the best staff members, teachers and administrators, have left. There is a high turnover rate for the staff at this school. I have heard that teachers leave because there is a huge lack of professionalism by some of the staff members. My child went to Holcomb bridge middle school and the staff truly cared about my child. They were more concerned with actually doing their jobs and teaching my child rather than getting wrapped up in work place drama. I wish I could pick up the staff from Hbms and place them at chs.

The new principal doesn't even bother to respond to emails from concerned parents. My daughter's math teacher was absent over 40 days last year and the school failed to provide the class with a long term math substitute. The average EOCT grade for her class was a 67%. The school should be ashamed. When I asked the counselor to switch my daughter to another class I was told that switching isn't allowed. The icing on the cake was when the teacher came into class two weeks before school was out and announced to the students that she wasn't coming back! Although my daughter passed the class thanks to private tutoring, I'm disappointed that the school did nothing to address the concerns of parents or students. The students even signed a petition begging for help. What a terrible first impression of Centennial High School. My daughter's experience overall was ok, nothing to write home about. There was also a lot of fights for a school with such great ratings. If we don't see improvement next year we will hardship our daughter to a school that is safer and concerned with the education of all students.

Both of my kids struggled at Centennial after transferring from a private school. We met with our kids counselor many times and had many meetings with all the teachers. There were always suggestions but no support to help my kids be successful.

Best HIGH SCHOOL in Atlanta! Teachers seem very happy as well as the faculty and students. It is a great neighborhood and state-of-the-art classes.

I have three boys at Centennial and they are doing well. The teachers, the front office, the principal and counselor are wonderful. They have challenging classes (AP and Honors), tons or clubs, and a good sports program. They came from being home schooled, but have adjusted well and really enjoy school.

Parent of rising sophomore. Last year's freshman year went well. Lots of extracurricular activities and opportunity for the motivated student. Kids really like new principal. Most teachers good, always 1 exception and there was last year, but I'm happy with instruction quality. School facility is looking run down, but otherwise we've had a good experience.

Great new principal, who has quickly made some great changes. Finally! No more see-through backpacks. Great new band director who is turning the program around very quickly. New science lab wing, and a new band room next year. One of the few schools with improving facilities that isn't too overcrowded. Not a perfect school, but better than many.

I am a current parent of a CHS student. I had high expectations for the school because my sister graduated from Centennial and had a good experience. Unfortunately, things have changed at CHS. The overall attitude regarding diversity at Centennial is very poor. I think it's a great school for the students that teachers put the time and effort into. Teachers don't contact all parents and place the blame back on the students if they are not successful. My son informed me that he was lost and completely struggling about four weeks into the school year. I contacted the teacher and was told, 'lots of kids are struggling.' I'm sorry that's not an acceptable answer. I am looking at charter school options with more positive diversity so that my son is not stereotyped and left to fend for himself.
