My experience at Clarion was not the perfect high school experience, but was not awful by any measure. I was able to take classes I was interested in and met a few wonderful teachers whose positive influence and encouragement still motivates me today.
At Clarion Area High School I felt there was significant room for improvement in promoting academic activities such as Science Olympiad and Robotics. However, Clarion's involvement in the arts is very high, and I am always impressed to hear about the accomplishments of our musicians, dancers, artists, and more. Though I believe there is an imbalance between the importance of sports and other extracurriculars, we did very well for a rural high school of our size in encouraging students to involve themselves with their interests.

There is a lot of bullying at Clarion Area, which administration usually ignores. Classes are centered on passing tests, not truly learning and retaining the information presented to students. Teachers are feared and not seen as helpful when students are in need of assistance.
I liked the fact that Clarion is a school that is big on sports, clubs and just extracurricular activities. If I could change one thing about clarion high school is the bullying and racism. It would be absolutely no tolerance.
