Our Philosophy

No student should be expected to fit into a mould.

Too many schools are designed to suit the so-called “average” student. At Centennial, it’s quite the opposite. We shape our school to fit our students.

We are early adopters of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a scientifically-driven educational framework that addresses the main barrier to learning: an inflexible, one-size-fits-all approach to teaching. UDL reaches all types of learners, by providing multiple means of representation, expression and engagement.

As firm believers in UDL, we aim to be academically and socially inclusive and strive to make learning both accessible and meaningful.

By following the principles of UDL, we can actively cause learning.

We shape our school to fit the needs of our students.

We shape our school to fit our students – not the other way around.
