There are many ups and downs to this particular high school. I am fortunate enough to say that I really enjoyed my four years attending the school, participating in sports, theatre, and academic extra curricular organizations was overall a fun and education experience for me. Many teachers were helpful in teaching me their class subject and about growing up in general. As much as my friends and I participate and try to enjoy school run events, there are large amounts of students who have a disregard for school policy and other's enjoyment in general. It puts a damper on things at times when students fail to participate in the same fashion you do, but sometimes they pull through. I also think that the school puts emphasis on average or below average performing sport teams instead of those that do exceptionally well. Both the cross country and swim teams at the school have amazing records but seldom get the same attention as the football team who have a major losing streak.

The school all together is full of pride and spirit. Theres a feeling of comfort in every classroom. Almost all of the teachers are always down to help you. The only thing I would say should be changed is the way the students and coaches treat certain students. You have to be well known in the area to make it onto a team. The coaches won't even consider you if they aren't very familiar with you or your family. The students are very "clique-y". They don't open their eyes to other people to be friends with. They only focus on their "clique" and only their "clique". Thats the only downfall to this school. If you don't fit in with the small town of people, then you have to learn to be okay with walking the hallways alone.
I have had a good experience in Saint Clair High School. The school has an exceptional dedication to students' pursuit of academics and athletics. The teachers are very encouraging and willing to help student to achieve. I always feel that the school has a high expectation of the students and promotes student achievement. Saint Clair High School has many positive attributes, but lacks the resources to make a student's experience exceptional. In regards to college readiness, the school has fallen short in helping students to move to the next level of education. The focus of the school is high school achievement, yet there is very little focus placed on careers or education.

If I were consulting someone on whether or not they should go to Saint Clair High School, I would advise against it. Although I have met great people and done well in the area of sports, I believe that I would achieve higher at a school that has the resources to push students further.
