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!

For Me Clarkston High School was overall a Good School. Although we didn't have all the latest resources when it came to technology, books, or even extra curricular activities, the environment and the teachers really put forth the effort to ensure that as students we were headed in the right direction. Furthermore, the administrators played a key role, working with students under disciplinary action so that the students could learn from their mistakes and not take a loss from them. I will be honest, due to our extreme amount of diversity it did cause our school to become slightly over-populated, but all the more respect to the teachers, administrators,coaches and even the janitors for toughing out 1,300 kids in a school that was only supposed to house 900 students.
My school experiences at Clarkston High School is good. Teachers will work with students to help achieve their goal for the future. We have a good security guard that will prevents student from getting into conflict. Staff work diligently to make school welcoming for other people. teachers are doing their best to push students to do better in school and willing to do anything to help students successful in the future. There may be time where students will get into conflict with their peers but it eventually got solved with help of a good teachers and security guard. In the future I wish to see less conflict at Clarkston High School. Overall, I like going and being a students of Clarkston High School. We have great teachers and staff that will do their best to welcome people to the school.
