I've been here close to 10 years, it's getting worse. I have a kid that's starting high school next year, so glad we are out and moving to a smaller and quieter town. Where are the parents? Oh wait..they are in California lol

School is 16% Black. The are more likely pushed around then doing the pushing. You do not have a big impact in a school with 16% of the population. And the Centennial student body has a reputation for being pretty aggressive in inter school stuff. Not a great school but kind of jockish and average. Can do good there though I would get a very smart kid into the NW Tech or Ad Tech.

Well, I dunno, I mean in that video they are pretty aggressive in my opinion. The question is why is this kind of stuff even happening? This ain't the first time this school has been on the news, the middle school near it is no better, Escobedo MS. I think I have an idea why but I'm not going to start or say anything. I always blame the parents, if kids don't have respect for their parents then this kind of stuff will happen.

Easier said than done. The directional CTAs each get over 2000 applicants for less than 400 spots. A-Tech and Veterans CTA get even more as they provide transportation for any student in the valley.

I push hard for my accelerated 8th graders to apply to CTAs, but several of my top students don't get in and are forced to go to their local high school with an average ACT below 18.

There's only really 2 CTAs worth anything - A-Tech (23.0) and West Tech (23.0). Coronado (21.3) and Palo Verde (20.5) do just as well as SW CTA (20.2), NW CTA (21.2), and LV Academy (21.6), and they have to keep all their behavior problems.

Considering you don't see this valley wide at least with anywhere near the frequency it's seen at Centennial my guess would be there is something "off" about the culture at that school. I've worked with dozens of HS students over the years from various schools in the NW and I've never met a kid who seemed to have any worries attending Rancho, Bonanza, Cimmeron or Clark.

Centennial Hills location alone suggests it would attract many home buyers who are less opened minded...suburban minded people.

I have little doubt both sides are contributing to the problems along with some possible mismanagement in their handling of things by the school.

Even though they claim that they'll jump the white kid, it seems to be a 1v1 in the videos, so at least I'll give them credit for that. The black students on the NW side of town seem to have a lot of unity though. Seems the youngsters still need some guidance. This is the 2nd time I'm hearing problems about black students in that area but this isn't anything crazy. I'm more afraid of some cowboy with a gun taking the law into his own hands at the rate things are going.

I would notify the principle in writing(with a copy of the letter sent to all the local TV stations) if he does nothing to secure the safety of my white son I'll be sending my son to school with a taser, mace or a switchblade to defend himself. I would not send my son to school without the ability to defend I himself after seeing that video. I would try to have those in the video arrested and charged as adults for assault.

Maybe there are some decent Californians out there but LV certainly doesn't seem to attract the decent ones.

This is what years of SJW leftist indoctrination In our schools had produced.

I went to high school in a majority black area. Make no mistake, there is a sizable contingent of the AA population that believes that everything is the white man's fault and who will go out of their way to start trouble with every white person they see, then scream racism.
