This school has a wide variety of academic, artistic, athletic, and extracurricular opportunities. It has a unique academic feature in the form of CSMTech, the Clarkston Science, Math, and Technology Academy. This provides a challenging and enthusiastic environment for any of our students who are interested in STEM topics and want to pursue those interests further. Beyond academics, there is a wide variety of art opportunities, both performing and visual arts, including orchestra, band, choir, and varying levels of art classes. The clubs range from Mindfulness Club to Dagorhir (Live Action Roleplay Battles) and give an opportunity for anyone to find a community that shares some of their interests.
Clarkston High School has great funding and excellent teachers. I had a great experience with my teachers there and consider one of my high school teachers as a very influential person to my future career, inspirations, and thought processes. The school is pretty large, with a graduating class of around 600 on average. Although a lot of money is put into our football program other than other sports-related or extracurricular activities, Clarkston cares about their students and try their best to provide an inclusive learning environment.
