Power Ranch Elementary is a neighborhood school that serves approximately 700 students with over 350 parent volunteers. Majority of our students live in Power Ranch and approximately 10 percent of our student population is open enrolled and live outside of our attendance area.

Power Ranch’s academic strength lies in our balance and integrated curricular program. Children master and apply literacy and mathematics skills through learning that emphasizes research, problem-solving, simulations and technology. The instructional program does not end with the acquisition of discrete skills but goes on to teach the use of those skills in higher-level problem-solving.

Centennial students also have the option to join the morning orchestra program for elementary school students and additional clubs formed based on student interest.

At Centennial, staff and students follow the model to “ACT 212:”

A = Academics (We promote high standards and academics)

C = Character (We help our students to be contributing citizens through service learning opportunities and character lessons)

T = Tradition (We have many traditions that we hold close to our heart such as our assemblies that the staff puts on for our students, talent shows, Pumpkin Lighting, Teacher of the Year recognition, Reading Under the Stars, and much more)

212 = Going the Extra Degree (At 211 degrees water doesn’t boil, but just by going one more degree it creates steam/energy and gets things moving. This is the philosophy that we live by, always going the extra degree in all we do.)
