This school sucks, only for the staff tho. Students here are very nice and mostly everyone gets along. Staff on the other hand are very bad, a lot of them disrespect students as myself and don't care about their students education. I'm a senior in Clairemont High and the only thing I do not regret is meeting the students here. I suggest you don't allow your student to go here if you want them to have the best grades in their life. They will only get good grades from C's to B's unless they really try. If you want them to have more of a social experience involving friends then send them here. This is my point of view for this school, thank you for taking your time reading this. Have a stellar day!
There are so many unorganized teachers who don't seem to care about students. I can't believe they got rid of the seminar classes. There aren't a wide range of electives or any advance courses to choose from before too.
the school system is stupid too! it seems that they don't even care about our thoughts, opinions, or feelings with the school. they just thew us in to any open class. i wanted art but i didn't get that class. but other people who didn't want art got it! on the first day of school so many people went to the counselors right when they got their schedules. so many students were put in classes they don't even want! Now there are so many usual regular students put together in the same classes as kids that understands things faster and finishes their work faster. I've been with the same seminar students since i was in 6th grade! and every thing went well. now we are stuck with students that are slower.
For my English class right now, half the class didn't turn in this summary. the teacher didn't even tell us specifically what to write and then she graded the people who did do it strictly. and for the people who didn't do it, the is giving them A SECOND CHANCE TO AFTER SCHOOL TUTORING AND GIVING THEM FULL CREDIT!!!! I AM SO MAD RIGHT NOW!!!
for my math class we have a new teacher who is still taking classes like in college or something. and when u are absent she doesn't even care. she just says its your responsibility to make up everything! i was absent for 2 days to go to a funeral and then she gave me a test! i told her that i was absent but she just told me to "oh well, try your best." then i ended up getting a c. then she said we could do test corrections so i corrected my test and turned it in. then she just changed her mind and said she wound't be doing it! on homework she gave us, there will always be problems that she didn't even teach how to do it so i would struggle on it for like 2 hours!
my friend has a different English teacher and the teacher would have an assistant teacher teach the class without the teacher doing anything during class time. The assistant teacher doesn't give out good instructions and never mentioned a certain assignment the students did was actually graded, but instead it was a "practice". Everyone literally failed it and when we ask him about the topic, he avoids it completely.
