I have been at this school for four years and I can say I've had a pretty good experience. They have so many paths you can take, and for a lot of different careers. I myself was involved in CAICC, a business academy. Now I am bundled in all microsoft offices and have a certificate in small business. All of the teachers are very supportive and care for their students' success. Last year, our school even had a 95% graduation rate! Our drama department is very popular in our county and even people who don't go to our school come to see our plays. I was also involved in a class called the Civil Rights Ambassadors. We talk about human rights and how we can apply equel human rights to our economy. We also participated in many county and national conventions and conferences in which we received positive feedback for. So overall, I believe Clearwater high school is a good school to go to. It may open new doors to many who aren't sure what they want to do.

High School is a time where you not only grow as a student, but you really grow as an individual. You really develop your own personality and learn what you do and don't like. You make friends that last for years and years and you'll make memories that last a lifetime. Personally I believe high school is more about social learning than academic learning. In 10 years it won't matter that the Pythagorean Theorem is but learning how to communicate with instructors and working with groups of people will. However, I would like to see an improvement in the food at Clearwater High. It'd be nice to see more options for vegetarian and vegan students like maybe a salad bar or healthier breakfast options like greek yogurt and assorted fruits to make a parfait. Overall, Clearwater High School has not failed me in the slightest. I'm proud to say I attended CHS and encourage all who are struggling in school to seek out guidance and never give up. It's worth the fight!
i’ve been going to clearwater high school since my freshmen year and i’ve enjoyed every year. The community is very diverse and the teachers and administration are very helpful, also caring. I have also played sports all 4 years and I believe our coaches are very good to the athletes and do a very good job at trainer there athletes. The only thing that sucks about our school is the food BLAH. WE NEED DIFFERENT LUNCH ASAP. We have very excellent clubs and all of our extracurricular activities with in the school are very organized and helpful. The academic programs at our school are also very educational and help prepare the students for college.
