 Welcome to Centennial!

Centennial is proud to be named one of Tennessee’s 2018 Reward Schools! Reward status is the top distinction a school can earn in Tennessee. Reward schools are identified annually as those that are improving overall student academic achievement as well as growth for all students and student groups. In 2018, 318 schools in 85 school districts (about 20 percent of schools in the state) earned “Reward” status. This is the third time Centennial has earned this high honor. 

The new accountability framework is based on principles that all schools can be successful and all Tennessee students must be served well. It is determined by a variety of measures, including chronic absenteeism, discipline, and TNReady scores. All schools are rated on both how they serve the full student population and how they are specifically serving student groups that have historically been underserved: students with disabilities, English learners, economically disadvantaged students, and African-American, Hispanic, and Native American students. 

Tennessee’s new school accountability system was developed through a 16-month process of gathering feedback and input from students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members. Tennessee has designated Reward and Priority Schools since 2012, but 2018 was the first year with an updated methodology as required by the federal Every Student Succeeds Act. As part of federal requirements, the plan was submitted to and approved by the U.S. Department of Education in an effort to increase school performance and student learning.
