Our school is exceptional! We're very very academic as well as have great athletics. We're a very diverse school and have about 1000000 handfuls of classes you can take that best interest you. We're in a great district and are blessed to have great funding so we're able to provide the students (me) with tools to succeed, for example, the district-issued laptop I'm writing this on at this moment. Our support counselors are also amazing and are accepting, calm, and inviting which allows the students to openly talk about their life and problems and creates very supportive staff and a place of good mental health!

Clear Lake High School had undergone campus changes - moving from 3 buildings to 1 building. The change in campus life brought the students together. CLHS has an amazing music and arts program - the band program is thriving and the orchestra is ranked no. 1 nationally! The academics standpoint at CLHS allows students to study on their own (college readiness) but also has great peer tutoring to help students as well. As a senior, I have been grateful to be a part of this school and can't wait to see the school keep growing.
My experience at clear lake high school is like no other the school is amazing all around! The teachers are fantastic and do a wonderful job of elaborating and explaining. The school itself is unbelievably big and gorgeous. I love how clean, spic and span the hallways and the entire school is. One thing i would change about the school is the travel times, sometimes the perk about having a big school is that it takes some time to get to your next class maybe 10 minuets will do the trick! Everything else about the school is flawless honestly i wouldn't wish for any other school!
