Centennial School District History

The history of schools in the Centennial area dates back to the mid 1800s. The name "Centennial" was chosen for the school district in 1958. Rather than name the district after one of its cities, since it serves several, a name was needed that would help unite the district. Then school board member Elsa Carlson suggested the name "Centennial" to honor the State of Minnesota's Centennial.
