Clinton High School Reviews

The school is overall pretty average. The teachers complain about being at school if it's been awhile since a break. I also feel like there's not many opportunities or options for students who actually have the ambition and drive to go to a large university straight out of high school. There aren't many college-prep classes or classes that are taught at an advanced pace. The school offers AP Lit and AP Calc, but no other AP options. Many other schools offer MANY more AP options. Not that it's as important as the education, but the food definitely leaves something to be desired. Also, the only sports team that gets recognition is the football team and they win 2 games per season. It's ridiculous.

The most popular extracurricular opportunities are all athletics. This school does have clubs such as choir, jazz band, theater, band, and scholastic bowl. The band is very popular at this school, as is theater, however, with the low population of students, the other clubs are not as popular. For the amount of students Clinton High School has, there are plenty of extra curricular opportunities for every student to get involved in.
I had a handful of outstanding teachers while attending Clinton High School, however towards the end of my high school career, many of these outstanding teachers either moved to other schools or retired. Clinton High School seems to be struggling to fill those spots with reliable and professional teachers. In return, the students are not receiving the highest of education possible.
