Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School Reviews

146 reviews
All Categories
Overall, the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School contains the average highs and lows for any school district belonging to the traditional American school system. One of the more noticeable issues include scheduling, which has progressively gotten worse over the past several years, it usually involves students not getting the right classes, getting transferred to the wrong ones, and in rare cases, having no classes at all. Some of the teachers do not even bother with teaching and only pass out papers giving kids the highest grades possible without any effort. Plus, the typical idiocy of the students gives rise to many fights, police officers appearing for drug busts, and lack of respect for many of the teachers, which is in part due to the arrogance of some administrators.

Clearfield Area Jr Sr High School has amazing teachers that will take the time out of their day to help you, no matter the problem. There is a nice diversity of electives, a large group of hard-working students, and good sports teams.
Cons: nothing too out of the ordinary
I liked it there because they had a lot of ap- courses to take. They also had many club's and activities to a part of and be apart of the Clearfield community. I feel they take their student's safety very serious and are always looking for ways to improve their education and social organizations. There teachers and faculty care about the students, which I think is important.
