I am a former student of Clarkston High School. I would first like to start off by saying that this school has a few select teachers that truly love to teach and are there to help you learn, they assist excellently. The staff, however is a completely different story. Many staff members, assistants, secretaries etc. are fouled-mouth and unproffesional, as well as the other majority of teachers. It is not a comfortable safe environment for everyone, many of the students are disrespectful as well, as well as loud and just plain rude. The receptionist for the school does not talk eloquently and is not very friendly, the counseling office is always on about 100 different schedules not knowing how to work together to help students, parents, and visitors. Itrust me everyone has a different story, but mine happens to be negative. I am so glad I'm done with it! Overall, if you are someone who is respectful, study and do your work, you will do fine, there is no need to worry, just focus on achieveing what you came there to do despite the chaotic environment.
CHs is not a bad school only the kids are bad they are mostly racist and don't care about education and skip school or class don't blame the teachers I slack off at times but I learn enough from the teachers
This is one of the worst schools ever. The teachers are basically there to get paid for doing nothing. There is absolutely no motivation in this school system. Majority of the students here are gang affiliated and the administrators are very rude and conniving. Transferring out of this school was the best choice ive ever made. The teachers and administrators are to blame because they gave up a long time ago on the students and these students lack the support and resources many schools around the nation have. Dont ever send your child here!
Clarkson high school is not a very good school academic wise, but the teachers are not to blame. Some students just dont care and doesnt realize the importants of an education. Administrators only seems to care about making ayp and getting off of the needs improvement list, but they are very friendly. Well at least some of them. I would reccomend your child to go there only if he or she has trouble academic wise because most of the classes are easy to pass.
I am a student here at clarkston high school. I can honestly say that most of the schools faculty is doing their best to help us strive for exellence. this may not be the best school in the dekalb county area, but you cant say their not trying
Clarkston High School's primary flaw is that the administrators are careless, and a majority of the students are careless. However, there are several students who actually strive for the best. I have been here for two years, and because i took advanced classes and AP courses, i didn't have to face the chaos of indifference. There are teachers who really care though, but without sufficient student motivation, Clarkston High School will never meet AYP, and will remain on the D-list in Dekalb
This school may not be the best. And it's just some kids who just don't want to learn. That's the parent's fault, not the teacher's. The parents should have done something about their son/daughter. As a current student; I can tell you, if you're determined and stay away from certain crowds, the school is great. The teachers are the best; can't say so for the administrators though. The teachers are extremely hardworking and they're reaaally friendly, they want you to pass; but it's hard for them if certain students don't want to. Which is why there are advanced classes. If you were in advanced classes; then you wouldn't be complaining.
