C.K. McClatchy is a wonderful school! They have a beautiful campus and the most diverse student body in the district. They have many programs Noticeably, their AFJROTC program is starting to become fairly strong, also there's Law & Policy, Police Academy, and I'd admit that the HISP Program here is very rigorous (much better than JFK's PACE), but the students who are not in this program are obviously ignored and overlooked. Unfortunately, the English and History classes provided for them lack the support that HISP has. I hope they strengthen their curriculum soon, especially their new AP Literature and Composition class. They should probably get more counselors for their large student body; ones that care for their student and take an initiative to see their students more often than twice a school year. On the other hand, CKM provides many extra-curricular activities. As long as you participate and be involved, you can easily become a well-rounded student surrounded by other very talented students. It s a community where you pitch in the work to be the best not only for yourself, but for CKM as a whole. It s the pride of knowing that "IT s (always!) A GOOD DAY TO BE A LION!

Amazing school with amazing programs! HISP is one of the many. Both the academic and athletic curriculum is fabulous!

For parents interested in their child's performance, there are few options besides going directly to the school. In this age of technology, there should be a schoolwide online system available like there is at nearly ever other school I have encountered in the last 3 years.

If your going to have your kid go to CKM then your going to want them to go into HISP. I have kids in the program and they say it is much better than just the regular teaching environment... They have the better kids in that program and they stay out of trouble. Go Lions!

We have wonderful teachers and students. Drama and marching band still exist at our high school. The building and grounds are beautiful thanks to our great staff. We have a lot of parental involvement.

Love this school! My son is in HISP which is an awesome program and is preparing him and challenging his as well. It keeps him with a good crowd which is important. No danger problems at all. A++

I'm a former student. Sciences and mathematics are seriously lacking at this school. HISP, however, is a fantastic program for English and the various social sciences.

We have been very pleased with the school and Principal Clark. She has been very responsive and is moving forward to bring back the quality and tradition of CKM. Safety has not been a problem.

me and my sister enrolled in this school this year and honestly, we do not like it at all. sure, the teachers are cool and the staff is nice for the most part, but the students arent. weve gotten dirty looks and when we sat down in the cafeteria, everyone at the table got up. its not a very welcoming school and i dont feel safe.

Too large classroom size. How are students accommodated? Discipline seeming would be a factor. Plus for reviews for academics.

McClatchy is an overall great school. I am currently a senior, and I ca honestly say that I have never once felt in danger. The environment is very friendly. for those who are overachievers, or who want a challenge, HISP would be great. The staff is friendly, and are willing to help those who need it in order to insure everyone graduates.

This school has prepared me for real life. It has provided me with every opportunity I could have asked for! Plus, I feel comfortable going out into the real world, I wasn't overly sheltered as a CKM student.

The HISP program is a wonderful program. You couldn't get a better specialized program, even in the area private high schools.

The HISP program has been an outstanding public school environment for my daughter. She is now a senior and her rigorous, competitive load at McClatchy has her well-prepared for college. It is a large urban school, but the HISP students are given a great context to be challenged.

My daughter was in the HISP program. Excellent Program for High Achievers. Its very tough for the first two years, but the teachers prepare these kids for college. My daughter was also on the soccer team. We both had a very postitive experience.

McClatchy had a great ROTC program and a wonderful program for honors classes and extra-curricular activities. As a former student of CKM I can honestly say that it was one of the greatest schools that I have ever gone to and that I wish more schools had as strong an arts program and a science program as McClatchy.

The administration is very rough. Student records are not automated. Clumsy attendance and tardy nortification system. No way to reach counselors. Teachers don't use e-mail or voice mail. Assignments are not posted on websites. Teachers stressed with too much work. Can't give individual attention to students.No college advising to speak of. Very good magnet program for academically inclined (HISP) students.
