Our School

Core Values

The core values of the school provide the foundation for building a positive culture and community. Students and staff are entitled to a safe and healthy learning/working environment. We also want to create an atmosphere, which is welcoming to visitors. Staff and students are expected to follow the following core values:

  1. Learning is our central purpose
  2. Respect for self and others
  3. Creating a positive and supportive community
  4. Making the world a better place

School Culture

In order to maintain Centennial’s safe, pleasant, clean and supportive community environment, we endeavour that all students:

  1. Engage in learning their course work.
  2. Demonstrate respect for self and others.
  3. Take pride in and responsibility for our school.
  4. Maintain a safe and comfortable learning atmosphere.
  5. Promote responsible, co-operative support among all students and staff.
  6. Develop good citizenship.
  7. Respect all members of the School Community.
  8. Refrain from bullying or harassment of any type.
  9. Are not in possession of weapons, drugs or alcohol, or under their influence.
  10. Accept responsibility for the safeguarding of all personal possessions.


One of the foundational principles of High School Redesign is Meaningful Relationships. ‘Yotes allows for teachers to connect with students and helps to ensure that every student has at least one advocate in the building that knows them. Every ‘Yotes teacher also ensures that students have support as they navigate through High School and onto post – secondary. Students remain with the same teacher for 3 years. ‘Yotes occurs most Fridays. More information is on our Student Services page.

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​​​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
