    "Centaurus was the best decision we made as a family to open enroll our incoming high schoolers. They were immediately drawn into the engineering program...talking each night about their plans/projects....going to the engineering room for lunch & after school. ..wanting to pull better grades in math & science because of engineering. ..the pluses go on. The staff are compassionate & want to see each student succeed. The band program is awesome and there's opportunity for any level student to participate in a sport they are interested in. This is a school that is small enough to feel that you're part of the school community...and large enough to have choices of study & extra curricular activities for a diverse student body. My husband & I haven't experienced seeing high school youth as happy as ours to be at Centaurus."

    "I have a sophomore at Centaurus and have been so happy with his experience there. He used to be self-conscious and has really blossomed and feels very confident and happy at CHS. He is in the engineering program and part of the 2-time state champions marching band and orchestra. He also participates in baseball and track so is well rounded and involved which is important in the success of any student. I also volunteer in the office so see first-hand how things are ran at that school. The staff are amazing and are committed to helping the kids be successful in school at the same time helping them have a good high school experience. The kids are very supportive of each other and bullying is not tolerated. BVSD has helped to provide great improvements at CHS, including the engineering program and the IB program. The teachers are very committed to helping the students achieve their potential and are open and responsive to parents. Compared to what I hear from parents who have kids at other BVSD high schools, I think CHS is the best!"

    "We looked at virtually every high school, public and private, in the area, but only Centaurus stood out as a great fit for my son. He is mid way through his freshman year and we have not been disappointed. The quality of the pre IB and engineering departments are outstanding, the teachers, counselors, and administrators are approachable and capable, and the climate overall has been quite positive. Centaurus is doing a great job of providing academic challenge in a supportive and friendly atmosphere."

    "My son has just completed his first semester at Centaurus and I am impressed. Teachers at Centaurus have an open-door policy and students can visit, get help, and spend time getting to know them. The teachers go out of their way to get to know the students and work to challenge them. The IB program is fantastic, the engineering program is 1st class, the teachers are incredibly engaging and inspiring, the staff is incredibly friendly. Centaurus is truly a hidden gem!"

    "This is my daughter's third high school in 3 years and she loves CHS. She even went to the "nationally ranked" school down the street but this is her favorite school by far. She says the teachers and administration at CHS are great. She gets good grades, has wonderful friends and is really happy! That's all that matters to me."
