“Whatever it takes;--together--we make it happen.” We are #BetterTogether and #TryHard!
- Centennial Junior High School will prepare all students to be successful citizens in our community by:
- building strong relationships to inspire maximum growth
- engaging all with high expectations
- inspiring innovative thinkers to be the best version of themselves
- developing character to encompass leadership, responsibility, and respect
At Centennial, we have adopted four pillars that we encourage our staff, students, and families to live each and every day. It is our core belief that, by living these pillars, not only will we all be successful academically, but we will continue to grow as human beings.
We strive to foster a positive, caring, and safe environment for all members of our Centennial family. The staff at Centennial has high expectations for all students -- and each other -- encouraging all to have a growth mindset, as we truly believe that everyone can succeed. Our staff and students are expected to "try hard" each and every day, knowing that success only comes from all of us putting forth our best effort.
Centennial’s professional educators implement the Wyoming state standards, with a strong emphasis on literacy, math, and researched-based, creative instructional strategies.
All Centennial students are provided with math and language arts on a daily basis, and science and social studies every other day. Our students are provided with health and physical education, with a strong focus on outdoor recreation activities. We also provide a choice of electives and exploratory courses including woods/drafting, metals, family and consumer science, Spanish, computer science, and digital environment. Fine and performing arts choices include visual art, vocal music, band, orchestra, and exploring music which offers a variety of instrument and music technique experiences. While all teachers differentiate instruction in their classrooms, students also benefit from a "WIN" (what I need) time, which consists of classroom intervention/extension in each core content area.
Each day begins with a homeroom dedicated to progress monitoring, social-emotional curriculum, and setting students up for success in their other classes. Additional supports include tutoring for math and language arts during the school day, an after-school intervention club (ASI) and before-school intervention club (BSI) for help with academic needs, summer school, tiered interventions for both academic and social-emotional needs, and opportunities for assessment correction/retakes.
Centennial has the WEB Program, which stands for "Where Everybody Belongs." This is a program that consists of select 8th graders who work with our 6th graders to ensure their transition to middle school is a positive and successful one. These students get the opportunity to work with the same peers all year long! Other activities include Art Club, Anime Club, Archery Club, Drama, Centennial Singers, Jazz Band, Orchestra Strings Club, Spanish Club, Student Council, Yearbook Club, and Robotics Club. Centennial students also have the opportunity to participate in a range of athletics including volleyball, football, basketball, golf, soccer, swimming, wrestling, cross country, track, and Nordic skiing.
Classes begin at 8:00 a.m. and run until 2:40 p.m. The school is open for students from 7:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
