Centennial High School is a high school located in Pueblo, Colorado, United States. It serves roughly 1000 students in grades 9 through 12. The school is a part of Pueblo School District 60.


Centennial High School started out as a 16 x 20 foot structure built in 1873 at 421 North Santa Fe Avenue in what became downtown Pueblo. Six years later, a larger adobe building went up at Eleventh and Court Streets on Pueblo's north side. This school was first called the High School of District One, or Pueblo High School. When Colorado was admitted to the Union in 1876, one hundred years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the high school gradually began to be called "The Centennial," in honor of Colorado's appellation as "The Centennial State." At some point, locals dropped the article and began referring to the school as Centennial High School.

The adobe building was expanded beginning in the late 1880s, until a larger high school was mostly in place by 1921. This building served for over fifty years until a new campus was built further north at Mountview Drive and Baltimore Avenue in 1973. The new campus featured a large gymnasium, an indoor natatorium with balcony seating, and District 60's only planetarium. The old campus was torn down is now the site of a District 60 administration building. A museum featuring a recreation of the font facade from the original building was built on campus, and it houses archival material detailing the history of the school and serves as the headquarters for the Centennial's alumni organization.[2][3]

The first graduating class in 1884 consisted of seven students. Well-known graduates of Centennial include David Packard (1930), co-founder of the Hewlett-Packard Company; Morey Bernstein (1937), author of The Search for Bridey Murphy; Edra Jean "E.J." Peaker (1958), a Broadway, film, and television actress; and many of the business and political elite of Pueblo.

The school colors are red and white, which is believed to date back to 1894 when a group of the school's girls wore red and white ribbons in their hair for a football game against Colorado College. The school's mascot, the bulldog, gained school-wide acceptance around 1912. Centennial uses a variation of the University of Wisconsin fight song, which is sung as "On Centennial," for the school's fight song. Centennial won the first recognized Colorado state high school football championship in 1904, and has won three other state football championships since then, as well as championships in cross-country (seven) and basketball, golf, tennis, and cheerleading (one each).[4]

Centennial is part of what is believed to be the sixth oldest high school football rivalry, and the oldest west of the Mississippi River, with their annual game against cross-town rival Central High School. The schools first played in 1892 and played fairly regularly thereafter until 1907 when a brawl at that year's game and then JROTC training during World War I put a temporary halt to the series. Since resumption of the series in 1921 the teams have met every year. The game is known in Pueblo as "the Bell Game" and the winning school takes possession of an old train bell which was donated as a trophy in 1950.
