As a former student of Clinton High School, I am thankful for the education I attained as those three years held a substantial share in who I am today. For example, the teachers were dedicated and always confirmed students comprehended information. Because of my ADHD, it took me longer to understand lessons than peers around me. However, my teachers happily accommodated me as I received help in tutorials before and after school! The environment was positive. Monthly pep rallies allowed me to relax. Clubs and extracurricular activities also played a great role in how I interact with others. I participated in Spanish Club, Anchor Club, HOSA and choir. I developed exceptional communication, self-awareness, and deductive reasoning skills. My counselor guided me towards everything necessary for college. In conclusion, I believe Clinton High School was positively influential in my education and well-being. The benevolence and encouragement will remain with me forever.

As a student at Clinton High School, I feel that I am put in an environment in which I can easily learn how to work with others. Students of many cultures, religions, and ethnic backgrounds attend Clinton, preparing its students for jobs after high school--jobs in which they will work with a diverse group of people who each think differently than those around them. Teachers prepare students for college as well by treating their students like adults, especially in advanced placement classes. Clinton also offers fabulous Music and Arts programs that help teach students time management. Clinton High School does an excellent job at preparing students for their futures.
Clinton High really is an A school. The faculty is top notch and they do offer a wide variety of extracurriculars. However, one con is that everyone is VERY, and I emphasize VERY, cliqueish. On the outside everyone is really nice because they suppose to act like that and keep up their good kid image but deep down, they will find subtle ways to exclude you if you don’t fit their clique’s image (which most of the time is caucasian and preppy). Overall, it’s not a bad school to attend if you want to focus on your academics but just keep in mind if you don’t fit a certain image, you’ll be excluded.
