Centennial High

I see anger, fear in disguise
Fears a cover for tears
Tears a cover for fear
Laughter hiding sorrow after
Mirrors speak and none here
Invisible doors made visible

Centennial High is a large 3 storey school that serves Millhaven and the surrounding area. Bequeathed to the town by Emily Hart in 1882, the school was originally slated to be a warehouse but that fell through. In 1900 the third storey was added and the second completed during the towns boom. The third storey has been closed since 1904 and is off limits to the student body.

The school currently houses 401 students in grades 9-12. Most classes consist of grades 9-10 in one, and 11-12 in another for each subject. Subjects runs on a semester system (4 classes a semester, 2 a year. Sept-Jan, Feb-June.). The school opens at 8am for students who want to get a cheap breakfast at the cafeteria.

Every other week the 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 classes change. So one week classes run 1,2,lunch,3,4 and the next 3,4,lunch,1,2. This is ostensibly to make up for the 10 minutes missing in the 2nd period classes, but in reality is done to confuse students and get them prepared for the illogicity of the real world.
