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.
