Engaging Students

Centennial Place Elementary School is a child-centered, community-based themed school that focuses on Science, Mathematics, and Technology. The school draws its student population from the Centennial Place neighborhood and surrounding communities including two shelters. The students bring a multiplicity of diversities in cultures, languages, socioeconomic status and customs. Centennial is designed with open classroom space configurations that provide technology rich learning environments. This configuration encourages cooperative, collaborative instructional teams to create and produce interdisciplinary work.

The Centennial Place vision is for families, schools, and the community to be unified as a Learning Village with focused strategies to change underlying attitudes toward education. The Learning Village idea was conceived by a coalition of Atlanta Public Schools educators, university leaders, and community business stakeholders. The ultimate goal of this unification is to create a pipeline beginning at Centennial to feeder middle school (Inman) and high school (Grady) and ultimately ending with our students enrolling into the Georgia Institute of Technology.
