Welcome to Centennial Place Elementary School...
Innovation is the key to any successful organization and Centennial Place utilizes innovation on a consistent basis to meet the growing demands involved in educating today’s youth and turning them into successful, productive and responsible citizens of the world. In fact our school’s motto Preparing Children to Change the World embodies the essence of what is required to produce life-long learners who possess a passion for education and are charged with the task of making the world a better place.
In 1994, Centennial Place was conceived by a collation of innovative Atlanta Public Schools educators, university leaders and community business stakeholders with one mission – create a ‘break-the-mold’ public school that could resolve contradiction, shatter barriers and provide a world class education for today’s youth. Since its inception, Centennial Place has become synonymous with high academic standards and exceptional student performance. Centennial Place continues to be a premier metropolitan Atlanta Public School because of the distinctive programming, exceptional teaching and learning environment, unique attention to data, and specific instructional student prescriptions. Centennial Place is truly a special place!
Our core belief revolves around a child-centered, community-based school that focuses on Science, Mathematics, and Technology. Our students are afforded the unique opportunity to learn and grow under the care and conviction of a dedicated faculty/staff who believe all children can meet their full potential with rigorous instruction and constant support and guidance. Through our exceptional instructional design, students develop a rich understanding of the traditional core subjects (mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, etc.) combined with 21st century digital literacy skills which are essential for success in today’s global society.
I welcome you to become a part of Centennial Place Elementary School where we are truly committed to making a true difference in the life of every child.
Strategically planning for the success of all students,
Alison C. Shelton
