This school is one of the best kept secrets in the city. It is exemplary in its approach to educating children. The principal is a woman of strength and integrity, and does accept mediocrity from her staff. She probably knows every student by name, and each student loves her. The administrative support which includes the security staff treats each person with dignity and respect. the academic curriculum is not watered down for our children, their skills are elevated to achieve at an acceptable state wide level I love this school. My only fear is that the Governor will learn of this principal's effective leadership and appoint her to a state wide position. But for now, this school is the best this district has to offer!
This school gets students displined and focused on what they want. They teach to the wrongs and rights. I hope that many people can see that this school is great for any students. There are no bullies. There are some people that are just mean ,but no need to pay attention to their opinion. There just jealous of you. I encourage everyone to go to this school. If your unique you fit in perfectly.
MY 13 yr old attends she came from a school that was closed due to the lack of education the children were receiving. Clippert was able to support her in catching up she was very behind in Math and science she received tutoring for free, she is now on track and doing well. The school keeps class sizes manageable and the staff are very helpful. I have another child who is in suburban down river elementary school and I will be sending him to Clippert as this school is doing better then his suburban option.
Hello..I am a formal student at Clippert Academy. This is my third year in this school. Im in the 8th grade. I love all the teachers there great. They really love to teach but they hate when you talk alot! I think that Clippert is one of the best middle schools in Detroit. It gets good grades. The principal is wonderful, and so are the teachers.-monica garcia
Clippert Academy is one of the most wonderful schools in Detroit. The teachers are some of the best in the nation, and I know of one science teacher there that received the Teacher of the Year award for Wayne County middle schools. She is also involved with Science Olympiad, a program that encourages science and imaginative solutions in the students.
