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!
My experience in this school district has been for the most part positive! the atmosphere the administration creates is something that many students and parents envy. The administration tries its best to push academic integrity along with social skills. I personally have enjoyed my stay at specific the Clarkston Senior High School and hope they continue the excellence. The only reason I rated it four stars was because there is still room for improvement, like anything, in their faculty. I only say this due to my encounters with some truly bad teachers. It's sad but true. Teachers who get their worksheets online, make the class teach themselves, and fail at properly explaining the subject have been prevalent in this school, But the many out ways the few.
