Engage and Thrive at Centennial Elementary

At Centennial Elementary, our strength comes from the close-knit nature of a small neighborhood school. Located in the suburb of Richfield, we serve and teach students grades PreK through 5. With a low student-to-teacher ratio, we provide rich and individualized learning experiences for each of our students, ensuring success at all levels. Our teachers genuinely care about and are committed to improving the well-being of our students and their families. We respect and value the cultural backgrounds of all our students and consider our diversity an advantage in the classroom.
