We’ve been having construction at our school for the past two years that’s supposed to end in 2021 that’s been closing off different entrances and exits, making it difficult and time consuming to maneuver around the school. The teachers can be unforgiving about the tardiness because of it. Fights occur fairly often and rules aren’t enforced as much as they probably should (even the more important ones). That being said, the administration is amazing and always willing to help!

At Samuel Clemens High school academics are a priority, they supply students with many different courses to take ranging from regular to IB. There are clubs, sports, competitions and many other things for student to join. The community is diverse in religion, ethnicity, and style. Students can express themselves how the please, and within dress code. The teachers are always happy to communicate with students and parents to help make everyone feel comfortable. But my favorite part about Clemens is the want fro ever students participation in something. Since there are so many things to join everyone is welcome to participate in something! As a member of HOSA at Samuel Clemens I can say joining something can really make school a better experience.
Clemens is has a decent building currently undergoing construction and the expected renovations are exciting! As a senior I have thoroughly enjoyed my high school years. The teachers genuinely care and make efforts to help you learn the material and not just pass the class. A lot of my teachers are very accommodating and I know how to reach them outside of the classroom if I need any help.There are many extracurricular activities and a great athletics program! The IB and AP program are definitely top tear programs. As an AP student i highly recommend taking AP courses, because they thoroughly prepare you for college. I also am on the girls soccer team and all the sports are shown great support and Buff pride. Go Buffs!
