CHS is full of cliques. The populars and nonpopulas mainly. The popular girls don't talk to me because Im not popular. The popular boys won't talk to me because I don't play sports. The kids are rude. They need to learn to not bully and judge others. Teachers are great!

Been going to clarkston since kindergarten. So I'm user to it. But people are really snobby a lot of people like you if you're rich and pretty. Thats it. No one cares if your nice you have to be an athlete or something popular. The education is outstanding ahs best teachers but done teachers are just rude and I feel clarkston all about money. I would recommend this school but its over crowded you cant move in the hall at all.

Clarkston High School is full of bullies, snobs & down right MEAN kids. I guess the parents of Clarkston are to worried about making that money to teach their children respect. Believe me when I say it is full of teenagers who drink and use drugs and have unprotected sex and brag about it to everyone in the school. Your child won't get a proper education at this High School!

I attended Clarkston High School at the beginning of my junior year after moving from Ohio. I had never before encountered such mean kids in my life. I was ridiculed by several classmates every day, my grades fell, I became very self-conscious and introverted, and I hated going to school. The administrators told my parents it was something that I needed to "resolve on my own " without adult interference. How do you handle it on your own when it is allowed to continue every day? I was extremely grateful to finally transfer to Our Lady of the Lakes at the start of the second semester. It was the best thing my parents could have done for me! The students and teachers were very welcoming and nice and they do not allow bullying or mean behavior. There are also other good schools to consider, as well. Just make sure you choose what is best for your child. It really makes a big difference!

I like the layout and and I enjoy the Csmtech program that is so challenging. They have plenty of electives and the sports are great as well.

I have a child at Clarkston High School and I can't believe how over-crowded the building is. Also, the only sport the A.D. cares about is football and basketball, .

Terrible. It may be a newer building, but it has the same old low Clarkston standards. Good sports, but that is all.

There are many academic and extracurricular activites at CHS, but the way the school district works has become highly political in the last few years. CHS has become a totally different environment than it was 8 or so years ago, an not necessarily in a good way.

My children came from a private school environment into CHS. Academicaly the challenges are equal to any of the best private schools. Athletics are second to none in every sport. Every child is given every opportunity to excell in their interests. We definetly made the RIGHT choice.

I have attended this school for four years. I absolutely love it. Just like any school, your time here is what you make of it. The school gives you many opportunities to be involved with many after school clubs, sports teams and music programs. There are a lot of kids, and at times it does feel like you are just another student, adn the counselors were not very helpful in the stages of planning for college. However because there are so many kids it teaches you how to make it in the real world, and find a way to get the attention you need because there won't be someone there to hold you're hand in the workplace. I think CHS has a great level of professionalism and has given me the tools I need to make it in the next part of my life.

My children are graduates of 2002 and 2004, the oldest is graduating college this year with a 3.8GPA at a top notch private university and my youngest is maintaining a 3.0 at a Michigan Public University. In High School those are the grade points they graduated with, so I believe that Clarkston High prepares the child for college at the level they work at while in high school. However on the couseling end neither child received any guidance in regards to which university or career to persue, which is a shame. It did not matter whether you were a top notch student or an average student, you did not get guidance unless you asked special for it. Other than the guidance we were very satisfied with the school's ability to prepare my children for the next level of education.

After several parent-teacher conferences, we feel that our children are merely a number and not an actual face. The college counseling is nearly non-existent for a high school of this size. They instead encourage you to attend other college fairs.

Outstanding selection of extracurricular activites. Solid involvement of parents. Moderate mix of academic programs. For as much money and resources as the district has in its power, it has relatively low test scores and college placement as compared to surrounding school districts. The administrative focus is on growth and they have not had to focus on the quality or strength of their academic programs.

I am very disappointed in clarkston high. The kids are totally forgotten about unless your parents are rich. The classes and over crowded and no one truly cares about our children. It is a rat races and education is not important its all about the money and who the parents are. Children that come from middle income families are passed a side for the rich kids. What a shame!

First year in a public school for my children and CHS is comparable to a private school education except that there is a more intense athletic program available. I am very delighted with the class size, parental involvement, open-door policies, cirriculum and all that we have experienced to date.

I go here and I love it. I really wish that they weren't changing it so that the high school started with 10 grade instead of 9th but other then that. This school has a great system the halls are crowded but the class size is good.

A very, very large high school. Works well as long as your child is involved in a sport, band or other activity. Parental involvement is a must as counselors have too many students and not enough time. Often those students who are at the 'top', or those in trouble, or need help are the ones that get the most help.
