The Mission of Centennial R-1 School District

We will provide the best education for all students utilizing a variety of research-based curricula and cultural resources, effective communication among parents, community and staff, and collaboration to create a safe learning environment to provide opportunities to our students for success in a global society.

Each student in our community has the right to a rigorous, high-quality education in a supportive and nurturing environment. Guaranteeing access to learning experiences that grow students’ critical and creative thinking requires high expectations of ourselves, our instruction, and our school community. We expect four things from our community school:

  1. Access to high-quality content through grade-appropriate assignments
  2. Strong Instruction that lets students do most of the thinking in a lesson
  3. A sense of deep engagement in what students are learning
  4. Teachers who hold high expectations for students and truly believe they can meet grade-level standards

At Centennial, we strive to treat all students with dignity and to honor and sustain our local culture. We do this by creating and supporting the conditions for meaningful learning for our students, our staff, and our families. 

Let’s draw on each other’s strengths to meet the goals and values of our District’s mission.

Together, we do great things.
