Centennial High School & Tommy Stewart Field

About the project

The Centennial High School project is a $63.3 million expansion and renovation that will meet the capacity needs of our student population and eliminate portable classrooms.

What's happening now?


  • Spring 2018 - After meetings with District and school staff and two community info nights (January 10 and April 17), the project management team reviewed and incorporated feedback. Design will continue until the end of 2018. 

  • Summer 2018 - Site preparation and utility work completed prior to the start of the school year. 

  • Fall 2018 Design will continue through the end of 2018. A Community Info Night for Central, Centennial and McKinley Field was held October 30, 5:30 - 7 p.m., at Central High School Library for community members to see the latest progress and provide feedback.

  • Winter 2019 - Hazardous material abatement occurred over winter break, and more will happen starting in February. Minor utility relocation will be coordinated with local utilities. Bid documents for bid release 1 were released, and bids will be taken February 28. Bid documents for bid release 2 will be released in March.

  • Spring 2019 - Construction will begin on the north and south additions and interior renovations in several areas, including the pool and gym. A groundbreaking event will be held at Centennial on Friday, April 5, at 10 a.m.
