About

Centennial, A School for Expeditionary Learning (Northwest Denver) is a neighborhood school for ECE through 5th grade.

Our mission at Centennial is to have an inclusive school that fosters each child’s sense of wonder and adventure through exemplary standards of character, academic achievement, and social responsibility.

The Expeditionary Learning model nurtures critical thinking, employs inquiry and real-life problem solving, sets high social and academic expectations, encourages perseverance, and utilizes opportunities which support cooperation and trust.

Centennial is very proud to say that we are the first neighborhood school in DPS implementing the Expeditionary Learning model!
