The Centennial School District is a suburban community bridging the cities of Portland and Gresham, Oregon. Downtown Portland, Portland International Airport and Mt. Hood Community College is all within a 20-minute drive. A primarily suburban district with strong community support, Centennial passed a $65 million school construction bond in the spring of 2020, allowing the district to update facilities, renovate classrooms, update safety and security systems, and improve energy efficiency throughout the district. In addition, the district received approximately $7.5 million in matching funds from the state of Oregon.
