I'm A Student At Clarendon High School . & Really , It's Actually A Pretty Good School . They Have The School Set As If You Were At Collage , So They Are Preparing You . But We Have A Demerit System & I Absolutely HATE It . There's A Building On The Other Side Of The Campus Witch Is A Pretty Far Walk & 3 Tardy Is 5 Days Lunch Detention . Teachers , There's Some That Are Kind & Some That Like To Get You Into Trouble . The Principle Is A Nice Guy But can be mean Sometimes And He Kind Of Scares Me But It's Actually A Good School ! Advice , If Your A Parent & Wanting To Enroll Your Child To Clarendon I Honestly Recommend It . I PROMISE They Will Make Friends , Our School Is Like One Big Family .

Clarendon High School is a low-income school, but the administration does a good job with the funds that are available. There is a lot of technology here that can't be found in other Arkansas schools. There are smartboards in every room and laptops available to the students. Most of the staff are dedicated and top-notch. The music and art departments receive more than adequate funding. However, there are also flaws. I've had lots of supplies taken from my classroom, some student work has been vandalized, and I've witnessed many fights. Our principal has dealt with these issues well. The school is in academic distress, but is working toward proficiency and making progress. Like all schools, it has its good points and bad points, but more good than bad I think.

I am very pleased with Clarendon High.We have a wonderful principal,Mr.Caldwell.He is a man of his word.He keeps our kids in line and don't take any mess from them.The only real problem i have is the math satilite class.The t.v. doesn't work more than half the time and there is no teacher to teach them.How are our children going to be ready for college if they don't have someone to teach them what they need to know because it's been to long for me to teach them especially when they don't have a book to go by and no teacher.Please help our children out!!!!!

Good athletic program and above average academics. While their math program is lacking, their english and science departments are very good. I enjoy going to this school.

As a college student who has attended Clarendon High School I can see that there is definite room for improvement. Classes at Clarendon would not have prepared me to survive at a university, had I not gone elsewhere for an additional education. Students were not taught to write MLA-cited papers, analyze literature in depth, nor were they taught to take notes during a lecture. While a general education requires one to know how to write lab reports, these were not required of students at Clarendon High School during my time, only three years ago. There is a decent choir program although it does not perform outside of the school, itself. Unfortunately, the majority of school's support goes to its football program, at the cost of some students' academic improvement. I pity the majority of children who attend this school in the expectation that he/she will be ready to attend college.
