High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Centennial High School is a secondary school located in Ellicott City, Maryland, which was established in 1977. The school is based in Howard County and is part of the Howard County Public Schools system. As of 2006, the school principal is Scott Pfeifer. In 1984-85, the school was recognized as one of the top 100 high schools in the country through the secondary school recognition program. In 1996, Centennial High School was the first high school within the state of Maryland to achieve the excellence standard in all categories report card. It attained these standards again in 2000 and 2001.
The school has a maximum capacity of 1,332 students, but through the addition of four portable classrooms currently as of 2005 enrolls over 1,600 students. Of those in attendance, 66.7 percent are White, 25.2 percent are Asian, 6.3 percent African American, and 1.6 percent are Hispanic. The high school dropout rate is 0.35 percent.
After school, all centennial sports teams were required to stay after school to clean the track and stands. Due to this, Principal Scott Pfeifer canceled Color Day for all future Spirit Weeks as well as, for one year, the pep rally and battle of the classes, an event centered on class competition traditionally plagued by similar acts as color day. The ensuing reaction from the Student Body was massively negative.
The mission of the Centennial community is to provide opportunities for all students to grow academically, artistically, and athletically, exhibit creative thinking, an excitement for learning, and a spirit of inquiry. Maintain a safe and emotionally supportive environment. Cultivate skills for success in a diverse and changing world and foster mutual respect and individual integrity.
