I love Clear Spring! It got me away from my awful experience with students at Williamsport. I love it here and I’ve made some of the closest friends, life long friends, and memories that’ll last forever. The plays and cross country are the two activities I loved the most. Clear Spring will always be my favorite school.

I personally had an okay time at Clear Spring. The teachers are not bad. But, the students are not the best and the teachers don’t do as much as they should to make sure everything is okay. One of my teachers I have had bad experience with, and did not at all like her grading or attendance because she was absent a lot, and did not grade for months. The arts teachers are very nice and friendly, and there are many opportunities at Clear Spring to get involved.
I've went to Clear Spring all of my life, it's a great school with an amazing sense of community. I personally enjoy the fact that this is in a rural area because classes are more focus on the students success. It's a very nice school with great staff and students; Everyone knows's each other and helps each other be successful.
