Clarksville High School has become my home over the last four years! I will always be a Wildcat at heart, and I couldn’t imagine experiencing the last four years at any other highschool. My classes have prepared me for the future years of college by challenging me intuitively. I have involved myself in several clubs and have joined several Honors Societies through CHS. I have strived to be the best student that I can, and I have accomplished so much over the years. I think that Clarksville High would improve if there was more emphasis from staff to participate in clubs and activities. Our school offers a great selection of these, yet students don’t join because they aren’t aware of the opportunities.

Clarksville High School has provided me with some of the most memorable moments in my life. Most of the faculty cares for their students and will do their best to help students pass. There are plenty of AP, honors, and dual classes available to help students earn college credit before they even graduate high school. Lots of clubs and sports make it easy for students to get involved and build their resume. The only downcast of the school is the counselors. The counselors are incompetent when it comes to creating students schedules as almost half the school has issues with them at the beginning of the year. As far as senior year goes, the counselors don't talk about scholarships available, college applications, or FAFSA. The counselors don't even put together the transcripts. I'm not exactly sure what the counselors are good at but at least Clarksville High has counselors.
Moving from a small town to a larger, bustling one such as Clarksville, the change of scenery was wonderful. I adore the departments and clubs our school has to offer, such as the Theatre Department and various activities in the library. School spirit is bolstering and unity is a present theme. However, the attitude of some of the students gets to be bothersome. While safer than other schools in the city, Clarksville students can constantly be heard muttering racist or homophobic comments, and teachers sometimes tend to teach with political bias in history or economics-related subjects.
