Personally, I love the schools and the people there, but I feel like the funding could be used a little better in the past. I am happy to see that they are building a new high school soon though. When I was in school people like the band kids, or jv teams did get the recognition they deserved. I believe this even for the groups I wasn’t apart of. Overall though, the school is always an upbeat place to be, and almost doesn’t feel like you’re in school all the time.
Clinton High School has helped shape me in to the person I’ve become. I have so much pride for my school, and hope to some day come back and teach in the Clinton Community School District! One thing I would change, is to make classes more challenging in order to prepare students in the most efficient way to go on to college.
