Centennial Elementary Exploring New Frontiers of Excellence
Centennial Elementary was opened in August of 2007 commemorating Oklahoma's 100th year anniversary of statehood. Nestled in the heart of Oklahoma, the school has successfully adapted to meet the needs of our growing community. Currently, our enrollment is over 800 students, ranging in grades prekindergarten through fifth. Centennial has built a solid reputation as a high performing school with devoted parent involvement, and a caring faculty and staff. As evidenced by the dedication of our parents, it is clear they value a well-rounded and rigorous education.
As you walk through the doors of Centennial Elementary, you will receive a warm welcome and visually experience Oklahoma's history. From the state seal in the main lobby, to the state song in our cafeteria, symbols are displayed throughout the school serving as reminders of our rich Oklahoma heritage. At the entrance of each grade level learning pod, Oklahoma emblems such as the Scissortail Flycatcher, Rose Rock, American Buffalo, White Bass, Red Bud Tree, and the Swallowtail Butterfly are embedded in the floor tiles in a mosaic design. Buddy the Buffalo is the school mascot encouraging students to be a "Buddy not a bully." Centennial is a very visually appealing school. However, the stellar education and emotional support students receive is paramount and always remains in the forefront of our faculty and staff.
