    "I loved how open and supportive everyone in the school was. I felt welcomed and accepted the minute I walked into the school. Centaurus has help led me to grow as an individual and has prepared me to go out into the world with a great outlook and a new perspective. I'm very thankful for all that this school has provided me with."

    "Centaurus is an underrated school in BVSD. Despite residing in a lower-income area, many of the teachers and administration are equivalent to to some of the best schools in the area. The school has one of the best engineering programs in the US (which has sent an experiment to the ISS) and has rigorous IB and AP course options for students that are seeking a challenge. The school policies and teachers are genuinely interested in student success and will work around problems. Centaurus has some amazing teachers in every department. All the teachers are highly qualified and know how to teach in innovative and effective ways. The recent Interim principle who previously was principle of Boulder High commended students for being well behaved and a pleasure to be around. The school has a strong LGTBQ community and students are very accepting of that community."

    "When I was first looking at high schools I was positive I would attend New Vista High School. However I ended up falling in love with Centaurus High School instead. I have had so many opportunities to grow academically and have made friends that are truly special. I have done some kind of extracurricular after school every year and kept a good GPA. Centaurus is the perfect student body size, and everyone is essentially family."

    "Overall Centaurus is a great school. It offers a pre-engineering program, AVID, AP, and IB classes, so there is really something for everyone. There is a wide variety of Clubs and Sports, and if there is a club that you want that doesn't exist, you can always start one as long as you have a teacher sponsor. Most of the teachers are very supportive of students and involved in the school. The student body is very diverse and there is little to no cliques which is nice. I highly recommend doing the engineering and IB programs because the classes and teachers are great."
