The saftey of the students is not cared for as well as the school board makes it seem.
Being that the school district has rearranged their buildings, the school is now an 8th/9th grade 'junior high' school. The building itself was the former high school prior to the 1999 completion of the current high school. The building was rennovated within the past year with the addition of an auxillary gym/weight room, new 600 seat auditorium, as well as various technology updates throughout. The new focus is to create a better transitionary platform for the students as they pass from the middle school to the high school. The school offers more programs and class options than a traditional middle school, but not quite as many as the 10-12 high school. The current teaching/administrative staff is relatively, but very energetic.
I am a student at CMS and i do believe that Clarkston MIddle School is a nice school. And i think Anna is right when she says that we're put with different groups to further more learn leadership skills, along with working together. Now that the school is a 8-9 building i think that we can further more be able to expand our selves to new heights before being subjected to high schools pressures. We get to be kids for a little longer!! Over all Clarkston has a nice set up not too diverse in rase but everyone has a different backround with family. Note: If your worried about your child meeting people everyone will be new this year because they are conjoining two schools together. Shasabaw MIddle, and Clarkston mIddle.
This school has a very nice way of grouping students onto teams so that they are able to meet new kids. Depending on what set of teachers are on each team, the parent envolvement is varied. Otherwise, the school extra-curricular activities are wonderful!
As a parent who did 'schools of choice' for our child to attend Clarkston Middle School I have nothing but praise for the teachers and staff.
Clarkston is the finest district in at least a 100 mile radius of Detroit. My only concern continues to be the liberal curriculum. For example,I believe it is more beneficial to teach our children a through histry of the US, not just specific focus on 'politically correct' special interest groups.
