Clio High School is an average school. This schools academic program is set up in the most simplistic form possible. Yet most students here will still fail class after class. So in attempt to fix the clio made Freshman Academy and with it Link Crew. Freshman Academy is supposed to help freshman, when they enter the High School from the Middle School. Link crew is a group of upper class-men who are supposed to mentor the Freshman. All Freshman Academy has done is help there self confidence. I didn't know that being able to skip an entire day of school for fun games in the gym was helpful in a academic view point. Even link crew members emit that the entire program dosnt help. In all this school has low test scores, low grades, and in all unwilling students. But there are a select few students that are actually thriving in this system. Since the system is already easy anyone who can do basic math and other subjects will ultimately pass without any real struggle.

The teachers at Clio Area High School are excellent! I would have to say that 95 percent of them truly care about their students and their education. My children have had teachers that give 150 percent to their education. I do agree that some of the younger teachers want to be friends or mentors and have a hard time distinguishing between the two. I also feel that the younger teachers feel threatened or afraid of their superiors, meaning the principals and above. It seems to be an ongoing problem with the administration but if we stay involved it is usually kept in check, within reason. The policies change though depending on who you are!

I went to Clio schools. I know how much the school officials and teachers care and see the parental involvement. If you are looking for a good school in a great community, Clio is an excellent choice.

Clio High School is an amazing place to earn a well rounded education. As a student there, I experience all that it has to offer. I know that the teachers there are preparing me for the future with a good education and sincere knowledge of the outside world. For the most part, the teachers really care about their students and want them to suceed. I also have to mention that Senora Yue, the Spanish teacher, is the best around, and she is an excellent teacher, along with many many others.

I attended Clio schools from kindergarten until 9th grade. It was a great dissapointment when I left. The school I attend now is too laid back and in the two years attending I have felt I haven't learned anything. Clio really challenges kids to succeed. Everyone seems to get along so much better at Clio High School then the school I attend now. Everyone is able to get along with everyone else. It's a great environment. Many current students may not realize it, as I didn't when I was there, but compared to other schools Clio is excellent. I would love to go back. I feel my education was much better there and overall Clio exceeds the school I go to now not only in teacher quality but also in curriculumn and environment. Sometimes the Administration may not please everyone but in the end their desicions do benefit the schools.

There is nothing about older teachers that prevents them from teaching. I attending Clio High School and many of the older teachers are the only ones who make demands, who expect hard work from their students and involvement from parents. When I was there the problem was primarily younger teachers, who made great friends and mentors, but who demanded very little actual work from their students. Clio was a great school, and when we moved for my senior year I was sorely dissapointed with the choices I had. All of the money and new buildings in Northern Michigan didn't change that I had already taken ALL the classes. Clio challenges their students more than any of the schools I have been to to worked for, and that is owed in large part to the teachers who many feel should retire.

Clio is not the highest in the county with academics. It is towards the bottom, maybe in the middle, but definatly not the top. I know Grand Blanc is the highest in the county, because it is one of the highest in the state, i would say with maybe davison a close second? I don't know about that, but i know Grand Blanc is the highest.

I graduated from Clio high in 2001, and was not happy with the administration at that point. I hope that this school has made some changes. There were some incredible teachers in this school, but I must admit they were few and far between. The physical school seemed outdated as well as some of the teaching practices.

There are only a few great teachers at this school. Younger teachers who are equipped with new techniques and actually like what they are doing and can handle the students should be employed. Communication with the students by the faculty is not good enough. Oftentimes, the students, for whom the school is meant to serve, seem to have no idea as to what is occuring. The school needs some help and the administration is afraid to address the problem. Communication is the the main problem and definitly needs to be worked on. Overall, the school obtains only an okay status because although it does posess a few good systems and qualities, the bad ones seem to overshadow them.

I don't think Clio teachers know how to handle there kids. I also beleive that any teacher older should retire they need a younger generation in the schools becuase I also think that the kids learn more when they have a younger teacher or parental guideance!

This is a great school with excellent teachers. The principal was very involved with the students and cared about their safety and well-being. The school had minimal bullying of any sort, it was just a very positive environment for me when I attended in 97-2001. My kids will definately attend all Clio Area Schools.
