Claremont High School is a great school to attend. The campus is outdoors, so students are constantly surrounded by nature. Teachers are very respectful and care about their student’s academic and personal life. In my personal experiences I have noticed that teachers try their best to be inclusive of all students and accomadate to any special classroom needs. Teachers also emphasize respect for fellow classmates and staff. There are many interesting clubs on campus, and there is always a chance for a student to start a new one! There are also great opportunities within some of the electives. I’m great to be apart of this school, and I will miss it when I graduate!

It was at CHS that I had some of the greatest teachers I will ever have, but also the worst I will ever have. Teachers such as Glavin, Easton, and Suarez are fantastic, inspiring educators. However, Maria Zavala is the single worst teacher I will ever encounter. Principal O'Connor was kind, helpful, and heavily involved in many different aspects of the school. At a time when many students are scared to go to school due to the recent epidemic of school shootings, I always felt safe and protected at Claremont High School. The Claremont PD were a welcome presence on campus. School-wide events were held often and many efforts were made to include all students in activates. Claremont High School is a fine institution and my experience overall was positive.
My experience in this high school was very pleasant, they offer alot of programs and gives alot of opportunities to aspiring artist, athletes and academist. The teachers and students were very welcoming and respectful. The school itself was perfectly organized and their standards are high, keeping the school in good shape. However they could work on a few things for example sufficient after school or lunch time study help. Doing this could encourage more studying and a better understanding of a good study plan. In conclusion it is a very good school but like every school there are minor flaws that can be easily fixed to build a solid structure of a great school.
