Clay Center Community High School is an open school. The staff is made up of some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. They are a part of Redesign and the teachers that are involved in it are committed to making the school a better place for the students. They are working the hardest that they can to create more opportunities for all students to participate in, and they try to get as many opportunities open for all sorts of different people. The teachers are very helpful and are the perfect people for their positions. The staff checks on you if they notice you aren't being yourself. They spend so much one on one time with you. Some teachers will do everything in their power to make you feel loved and wanted and to let you know that you're not alone. The teachers make you feel like you're in one big family, and I think that's a very important quality that all teachers should have.

We have some awesome staff who is always open to help students out. I love having technology access at all times because it makes it super easy to keep track of assignments. Many students treat teachers poorly, and there are some teachers and staff members who don't treat all students fairly.
It’s a normal small town, farming community high school. Teachers and staff are welcoming and supportive of the students.
