Clear Lake High School Reviews

The academics in STEM are good at preparing you for college, especially the math taught by Mr. Magee. The music program is strong too, with a Recording Technology program and the best band in the county. Safety isn’t that good though. I was electrically shocked twice due to negligence, and there are often very violent fights between students. Overall though, as long as you avoid insulting people, you don’t have to worry about being attacked. I’d say that the strong academics make up for it, especially since the school is going to be implementing new safety measures apparently.

Throughout my years at Clear Lake High School, I had many ups and downs. The teachers were a majority of it. Most of the teachers there are excellent and care about their students and their success. However, there are a few that seemingly are there just to make the lives of many 14-15 year olds incredibly difficult. Hands down the best part of Clear Lake High is the band program. The teacher of the program works incredibly hard and teaches students from 6th grade til 12th if they stick through with the program. Personally, I did band for 6 years and they were some of the most fun times I have ever had. The energy was always incredible and the lessons were always unique, even through all six years. Overall, Clear Lake High School is a fair place for students to learn and grow, and I would definitely recommend if you would like your child to have access to help from their teachers personally.
It was a great high school experience. You grow to know your teachers very closely since it is a very small school. Though I will say this year was very difficult and sad because of the corona virus and some things were very confusing. I think our teachers tried there best but some could've made it a bit less complicated, since online learning is difficult enough. It was very fun getting to spend my years here and they tried very hard to get our class of 2020 at CLHS to walk the stage. For that I will always be very grateful.
