My experience at Clear Lake High School has been nothing less than mediocre. First of all, our school administration's number one priority is sports. We fund enough to get new football jerseys every single year even though we haven't gone to state in a while. Because sports are such a high priority to Clear Lake High school, there have been teachers who have gotten hired not for their credentials, but based on if they were able to coach a sport or not. We also have such old seats and an asbestos problem in the auditorium. However, the school decided to not use the money to fix these things, but instead on replacing our Chromebooks with newer Chromebooks (even though our old ones were completely fine!) Overall, I think that Clear Lake High School needs to work on their prioritizing skills.

I really enjoyed my experience at Clear Lake High School. I only had positive relationships with my teachers. They were always positive in class and willing to help me outside of class. I loved the sense of community within the school. All grades are genuinely friendly to each other, and many people have friends in all grades. I had a great group of friends throughout high school, but I was always chatting with and having a good time with people out of my friend group.
In four years of schooling at Clear Lake High School, I have had the opportunity to interact with amazing faculty members. The teachers are very cooperative with students and do everything in their power to prepare every student for their future, whether that may include college, trade school, or entering the job market.
