Open Quote Very rigid and competitive curriculum. Involved teachers that really care. An arreay of extracurriculars. This school really pushes the kids to reach their full potential and makes attending college a priority. Close Quote

Open Quote I have had three children at Centennial and all have had a great experience. They have really wonderful friend groups. There seems to be very little drug use compared to other schools in the area. The principal cares about the students and good communication with the parents. She tries everything to bring up the ratings. Centennial is applying to be an IB school and there's only one other in the North Fulton area. This is a great school that doesn't get enough good exposure. Close Quote

Open Quote Wonderful school. High expectations and supportive atmosphere. The only thing that could be wrong is some of the parents act like spoiled brats at PTSA meetings Those parents make up a small (although vocal) group. Fantastic curriculum, teachers, sports/ academic programs. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

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.
