Clarkston Schools offers a challenging k-12 academic curriculum with limitless learning opportunities (AP, IB, early college/dual enrollment, CTE, STEM), state championship athletic teams, Broadway-caliber theater and musical programs and more! The district also has made considerable investments in the social, emotional, and physical well-being of each child. I love that Clarkston kids can create a story of learning that leads to personal fulfillment, meaningful relationships, and positive contributions starting RIGHT HERE in their neighborhood public schools!

CLARKSTON High school has provided a well rounded environment for my son to thrive in academically as well as with extracurricular activities of interest to him (ski team, marching band). School spirit and pride fostered by the administration and educators can be seen beaming from the faces of students in the halls on any given day in the life of a CLARKSTON wolf!
The Clarkston community school district is very small city compared to the other public schools in the county, but we are large community. I can say for my last year in the school system in Clarkston, I am very thankful that I was able to attend schools in Clarkston my whole life because quite honestly, the bar is raised very high here. Teachers in every school encourage their students to not only meet the standards but to exceed them. Not only do the students perform tremendously in the classroom, but we're very lucky to be well enhanced in athletics. We are a student-athlete community, welcoming anyone and everyone that would like to participate, and very serious about our education.
