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 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.
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.
