Clarkston High School gave me a wonderful high school experience. The teachers guide you, they have almost every sport and plenty clubs; you can even make your own! , the school is clean. There are people from all over the world that go to my school which doesn’t give you a typical high school experience.
The teachers at Clarkston help you with life. I’ve had teachers give their numbers to their students. Clarkston happens to be the most diverse square mike in America, so my school has people from over 74 nations in the world. We have all the typical clubs but a special club near and dear to my heart is HOSA, the healthcare club which will help me prepare to be a nurse. You can even make a club that suits you.
I believe that anyone would have a great time going to a Clarkston High School.You’ll be able to find yourself and others around you will help and make you want to come to school. It’s fun and I would love to relive it again.

The diversity of this school is excellent as everyone is welcome. There are plenty of great activities and clubs— one of which is my favorite is the K-Pop club. The school is lacking in distributing out cleanliness for the safety of all students, staffs, and workers. Nevertheless, everyone are encouraged to learn and be ready for their future!
I love Clarkston High School because every day the resources to succeed are all available to me! All I have to do is ask and take advantage of the opportunities before me. Clarkston Is so racially diverse and includes many from Asia and Africa. The unique cultures make Clarkston different from any school I've ever been in before. Teachers actually care and actually ask to ensure that you understand the information you are give to ensure that I succeed. I'm so blessed to be attending this school.
