Richfield is a comfortable neighborhood community with a tradition of excellence in education. Centennial takes pride in the diversity of the student population. We provide a full range of educational offerings and student support services for all students.
In a stimulating and nurturing environment geared toward young children, students are grounded in the early learning fundamentals of reading, writing, and math. As part of a balanced literacy program, students learn reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Students are exposed to a wide variety of reading materials that are "leveled" to match their reading skill level as well as receiving at grade level instruction. Teachers frequently assess students' progress.
Centennial uses the Everyday math program. The materials for math are structured and incorporate a spiral teaching method and provide our students with opportunities for hands-on learning.
Our students are served by four teaching Specialists throughout our Monday thru Friday cycle. Music, Physical Education, Media/Library, and Art. Centennial is linked to the future with a fully equipped computer lab. Each classroom has three student computers and a Smart Board with the latest educational software.
We at Centennial believe that we combine the best of traditional methods and innovative programs to best serve the needs of the Richfield community.
