Centennial Middle School was built in 1996, the year Utah celebrated its 100th birthday. Approximately 1,000 students fill up Centennial each school day, with students from Canyon Crest, Edgemont, Provost, Rock Canyon, Wasatch, Provo Peaks, and Spring Creek Elementary Schools. Nearly 40 exceptional teachers with a broad range of training, academic preparation and post-graduate study keep Centennial students learning, challenged, and at a good student-teacher ratio.
Centennial Parents are active in supporting teachers and curriculum. Each year they offer approximately 1000 volunteer hours. The PTA is fully functioning and meets weekly to support Centennial academic and social programs.
Centennial offers the standard core curriculum as well as a wide range of elective courses, including co-curricular enrichment activities. Opportunities for enrichment and academic support abound at Centennial as well. The Wolf Pack (homeroom) is a place where students develop relationships with a close peer group and a significant adult advocate. Wolf Packs average twenty-one students for each adult mentor. This school also utilizes Plus Time four days a week for 35 minutes. Plus Time gives students the chance to return to a classroom and have another opportunity to learn what they might have missed or just haven’t quite figured out during class time.
Centennial has received statewide recognition for the ballroom team and choir performances, social studies competitions, standout geography bee success and essay writing contests.
The teachers and staff care deeply about the success and learning of each student at Centennial Middle School. While Centennial students already outperform their peers across Utah and the United States on both English and mathematics testing, every effort is made to continually raise the achievement rate and keep each student ever progressing to a future full of opportunity and success.
