Clarendon High School Reviews
CHS is like many schools in the Texas Panhandle! Sports are a HUGE deal, and everyone is supportive of them! Typically students that are involved with one thing at CHS are involved with several other things as well. Parents are usually supportive in general, but not necessarily when it gets down to something that their kid isn't interested in. Electronic devices are encouraged to be used in the classroom (for educational purposes only of course!), and the technology department is great. CHS also offers dual-credit enrollment through Clarendon College which allows for advanced students to get a more personalized and challenging education.
What I liked about Clarendon High School was the administration. The principal actually enforced the rules equally amongst all the students to keep a fair, safe environment. I did not like the amount of time we got for lunch. We only got 30 minutes everyday to drive ti get food, get the food, eat it, and come back without being late for class.
There are not many security measures in place, mostly because the school is in a rural area and threats have never been an issue. Drug dogs make a pass through the parking lot as well as through classrooms once every 3 months or so. Getting access to the nurse is a Herculean trial! If you are not felling well you have to ask the teacher permission, to go to the office, to ask permission to see the nurse that is all the way over in the elementary school building. The nurse is in charge of 3 campuses (Elementary, Junior High, and High School) so once you are able to see the nurse, there is a chance that she will be busy with another student. She is also not on the same schedule as students so there is a major lapse in time that she can be out of the office for her own lunch while all students are in class. There is no sex-ed course at CHS, as is common throughout Texas (Although a once-every-four-years program called Aim for Success comes to discuss the dangers of STDs, STIs, and other dangers of having intercourse. The program does not however discuss ways to prevent this other than abstinence).
