Clarence Senior High School Reviews

This school offers a lot of opportunities that most high school students do not have. They are really flexible with scheduling courses, offering four different lunch times, and even allowing students to eat in classes.

Given their large endowment, the school offers a variety of special "college-credit" courses through Syracuse University. I personally took the course "Forensics"and obtained college credit for taking it. This course was my favorite experience at Clarence because it included field trips and presentations of real cases, some by police offers.

I took advantage of their AP classes and even self-taught myself AP French and AP Economics because the school didn't offer them. With AP French, a teacher who took it upon herself to supplement me with material, meeting with me weekly.

One downside to Clarence was their lack of diversity. When I attended 97% of the student body was white, which as a minority was really daunting .

I have gone to school in the Clarence School District since I was in Kindergarten. I have had nothing but an amazing experience here. All the faculty and staff I have ever met or talked to want nothing but the best for you. The school is newer and feels very updated and have smart boards in every classroom. Also the athletic fields are brand new turf. There is a brand new stadium with new bleachers and a new turf football field, along with a new gym with new floors, lighting, and mats!
Clarence Senior High School is a great place to learn, grow and achieve success. There are many opportunities for involvement and the teachers are awesome as well!
