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!

If you are a parent looking for an academically enriching school, don’t consider CHS. A good amount of students at CHS have been involved in drugs and drinking. There’s multiple parties with illegal substances that are more dangerous than weed. Almost every party has weed, bongs, ecstasy, etc. The math department is behind on the learning curve and students are failing out of their classes, thereafter getting placed into readiness classes. Therefore, retaking the same course the next school year. The school spirit and positivity has gone downhill. A good amount of the teachers don’t care about their students grasping the material, but they care more about their individual pay. Of course, out of every school there is a decent amount of teachers that genuinely care for their students. Overall, Claremont is most definitely an experience that I won’t forget. As a current student, I wish that my parents would’ve researched more about the school and considered other options.
Claremont High School is great! The best part is the IB Program that they offer, but the kids are insane. Its nice to have the option between AP and IB and the rigor is easy to find. The kids generally score high and go to good schools.
