Welcome to Centennial Elementary, home of the Panthers! Our school is an outstanding place because we serve amazing students and families, and we have an amazing staff. We feel very lucky to be part of the Pikes Peak Park Community. At Centennial, we are focused on increasing student achievement. Our school mission is Achievement NOW. This mission guides the work we do on a daily basis. We provide a world-class education in a safe and caring environment. We are proud of our partnerships with parents, families, and the surrounding community. Our entire school community is involved in helping our students be successful and have choices in life. In fact, we are an award-winning school. In 2014, Centennial Elementary was awarded The National Title I Distinguished Schools Award. In 2015, we earned the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award. In 2017, we became the first ever Colorado Urban School of Excellence, a National Award that recognizes outstanding student achievement data, wonderful learning environments, and positive culture and climate. We were also awarded the National Kaiser Permanente Healthy School-Wellness and Family Engagement Award. Most recently, Centennial was named a 'Best of Elementary School' by the Colorado Springs Gazette in 2019 and 2020. We are proud of all of these awards because we know that they are representative of the wonderful work of our students, staff, and families.
