  • Our vision at Centennial Place is a school where all children have a supportive learning environment that meets their needs while preparing them for a global society. As the centerpiece of the learning village, the school features innovative uses of time and space, multi-grade groupings, self-paced learning as well as gender, ethnic, and generational inclusion. The professional staff is committed to the belief that the school exists to serve the child and that each child will be a successful learner. Each child will be encouraged to develop intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
