Open Quote My children have attended this school for 6 years and as a parent I found this school to be A #1!! The teaching staff is extraordinary and the Administration is top notch. All questions and challenges have been answered or resolved in short order but these have been few and far between. All staff is attentive to students and to parents alike. Centerra is a marvelous school. I am proud my children are Mustangs! Close Quote

Open Quote My son joined the Centerra Mirage STEM Academy robotics team in the 2015-16 school year. 6 of 8 teams made it the state Robotics competition. 3 of those teams made it to the Vex World Robotics competition. They have an amazing robotics program. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
