I did not know what to expect from this school since we are on a transfer, I thought my son would be going to Cope since he went to McKinley for Elementary. But he actually really likes it and made friends the first day . Great teachers and a wonderful staff. We love Clement !!

Clement Middle School. The ParentPortal has been a great help in making certain all expected work is completed. The teachers have been very helpful.


Posted December 21, 2011

Clement is a great school. The teachers really care about the kids, as do the counseling staff. The principal is dedicated to making the school a great environment for learning. There are lots of programs for the students to be involved in, such as, band, choir, awesome drama program, lunchtime sports, and others. While many in the area remember the old days of Clement being a second class school, the leadership has really made it a priority to introduce great programs, teachers, and academic programs to make this a great school.

This school is really bad. My child, nor any of my students friends like attending Clement. Teachers and Staff are rude.

My husband and I have been very pleased (coming from private school) with both the campus, the staff (great comminucation) and the ciriculum.

I also agree that it is very difficult to get through to the teachers at this school. I've sent letters home on progress reports and actual letters that I gave to my child to give to the teacher and not once did I receive a response from any of my child's teachers.

I was very dissappointed with this school. Getting in touch with the teachers was nearly impossible. While the school is not fully responsible for the behavior of the children, obviously what takes place at home matters. I found the behavior of the children attending this school to be far less than adequate and parent involvement was lacking.

This is the best middle school in Redlands, and that is coming from a Parent and a teacher. My daughter loves the school and its teachers, and the students are well behaved.

Take a look at Clement's attendance figures for the previous 7 years - it will show that students don't want to miss a day of learning or any of the many fun things for them to do. Drama, Intramurals, field trips, student-led conferences, a top-quality web page, computers and technology, the 'team' approach, awesome teachers, Band, Choir, Broadcasting, the Yearbook. These are only some of the many things that make Clement the school to be at in Redlands. Clement is the best school in the best district!
—Submitted by a staff


Posted January 25, 2005

Clement has the best programs in comparison to the other area middle schools. The Drama and the Chorale Departments perform at a level far above what you would expect at middle school. The teachers enjoy their jobs ans it shows.

Clement MS is, indeed, a great school! My sixth-grade daughter has done well there and very much likes her teachers! The kids are pushed to do well, as well they should be! Dr. Kemple is a fantastic principal, who is very much involved in the school and is a great motivator for the students! Sadly, my daughter will be attending another school next year, but I'm sure she'll carry with her some wonderful and pleasant memories of her time spent at Clement!

Clement is an awesome school. Dr. Kemple is a great principal who expects great things from the staff and students. Her attitude makes the school a wonderful place. The 7D team teachers (2003-2004 school year) are very motivating and excellent. I am proud that my daughter goes to Clement.
