Centennial Jr. High School
Centennial Jr. High School is a two-story structure built with dynamic combinations of metal, glass, block, brick and steel. The district prototype school features numerous enhancements based on technology and community participation.
Each Centennial student receives a laptop for the school year, so two Wi-Fi hot spots were installed in every classroom, along with sufficient power and resources to enhance virtual teaching.
Collaborative learning spaces with displays and computer-aided workstations are located throughout the school so that students can work together more easily.
