School Tours, Open Houses, and Coffee Chats

A lot has happened at Centennial over the past year, including the implementation of Expeditionary Learning and a new ECE-3 program at the start of this current school year. There is so much positive energy in and around our school- it’s contagious!

Centennial is the first DPS neighborhood school to use the Expeditionary Learning model, which combines traditional instruction in core academic subjects with real-world projects and community service. This approach supports students as they explore the world outside of the classroom. Centennial also provides Spanish, Music, PE and Art to all students ECE 4-5th grade.

We know you have questions about Expeditionary Learning, after-school care and enrichment, parent involvement, SPF scores, and innovation status, and we are here to provide helpful insight.
