Principal's Message

  • Bulldogs,

    Welcome to Centennial High School for the 2021-22 school year!  In the near future, some of you will become the last classes to graduate from the current Centennial building and some of you will be the first classes to graduate from our new, state-of-the-art Centennial High School, which will be completed in the next year.  Either way, all of you will be graduating and becoming part of an impressive and successful alumni community that spans over 140 years.

    It is our pleasure to have all students and staff back at school and engaged in learning again! You have made an important choice to be a Bulldog, where our goal is to help each student strive for excellence, honor and the Bulldog way.  Simply put, we will prepare each student to become a well-rounded citizen who can thrive in the real world.  We do this by providing each of you with rigorous academic offerings, meaningful character development opportunities, and instilling necessary life skills. The proof of the success is well documented in the consistency of annual State School Performance reports.

    As we return safely to in-person learning during this Covid recovery, I want to challenge each Bulldog student to fully participate in the well-rounded learning experience that Centennial High School provides. This can be accomplished by engaging in the rigorous learning provided by our highly trained teaching staff and by participating in multiple sports, clubs and programs that help develop leadership, teamwork, creativity and essential life skills.You only have four short years to absorb all of the knowledge you can, explore any and all of your interests, and fully enjoy being a Bulldog!  I encourage you all to take full advantage of what Centennial has to offer and enjoy every minute of it.


    Dave Craddock
