Mount Clemens High School is a total joke. They don't teach they just put kids on computers. That's why more than half of the 9th graders are flunking. Also, their new superintendent doesn't know what she is doing. More parents are pulling their children from her decisions!

This school has serious issues! The administration does not know what they are doing and the teachers don't care. Leave, no run from this school like many others have and will continue to do!

Reading these reviews was most depressing!!! I left MCHS in 1962 because my family moved...I would have been a Senior!!! I was devastated...I loved MCHS and it was "top-notch". Our teachers were excellent, classmates great, and school spirit terrific. We received an outstanding education. With all that said Selfridge AFB fed a significant number of students into the school, and there was a great deal of parent involement. Fifty years has apparently made a tremendous difference in many aspects...I prefer to remember MCHS like it was.

This is an average school, that has some teachers whom are very concerned for the students and visa versa. There are many disrespectful young adults in this school who have been bouncing from district to district causing the reputation of this school to be flawed. Students should return to MCHS so that the arts programs can return and further engage the students to promote battling Bather Pride. Encourage alumni to mentor students interested in their career fields.

I am a Mt. Clemens Alum and a current Substitute teacher. I graduated from MCHS fairly recently (2006 to be exact) and I can say with certainty this school has a far worse reputation than it deserves. I sub at various high schools in Macomb County (Chippewa, Lance Cruse, Warren-Con., E. Detroit, and Lakeview, just to name a few) and it is in my opinion on par with, or better than, these schools in terms of education quality teachers caring, safety/truency, ect (meaning I'd give the staff and curriculum at all these schools an equally average score). There exist students in other districts who are rude, listless, and uncooperative as well - maybe even more so - but when anything occurs at MCHS, it's in the front page of the Macomb Daily! As a general rule of thumb to all you naysayers, discipline and reassurance students are studying are primarily the PARENT'S responsibility, not educators! Apparently MCHS is the only school who mentions that to parents, who apparently do not want to hear it.

I am not satisfied with the teacher quality of this school. So many parents have taken their kids out of this school because the majority of kids are not getting a good education. They have very bad test scores. Scholarships are minimal. I believe the principal needs to be a bit tougher on teachers so that they put forth a better effort to reach at least the majority of the kids.

Mount Clemens High school is a great school. the only thing wrong with it is its reputation. If something happens with this school, it is in the headlines of the paper or the news. every school has its flaws, Mount clemens is truley a great school

Mount Clemens schools may not be top of the line, but if your children attend the high school, they/we are learning something. It's not all the teachers fault, it's what effort you child is putting forth. (GREAT teachers!)The way Mount Clemens is conveyed has never really been the best but don't knock it until you try it. Mount Clemens truly is a great district! Maybe if we could get some support from the community and parents, (their input) things could change.

If you want to learn, you can do it here, at Mt. Clemens. Honestly, it's a better school than the reputation that precedes it. You make it what it is, don't judge it until you try it applying

I'm not sure how the school is now, but when I graduated in 2002, it wasn't nearly as bad as it may sound out to be. The books are old, yes. Some teachers are indifferent, yes. You'll have that anywhere you go; but if you want to learn there, you will. Also, I found it to be a good place to learn life lessons, because the school is as diverse as the city itself. There are wealthy people, there are poor people. There are black people, there are white people. You encounter a little bit of everything that the world has to offer and if you can keep your head on straight, it can really build character and social skills.

From my experience, I can understand why parents pull there children out of M.C.H.S., the important issue as offering students additional help that's needed. No formal tutoring programs are set in place, teachers now days seem to be unconcerned with students. The school needs to evaluate teachers and their teaching methods and not quick to assume the student does not want to learn. Never assume, both areas needs evaluated more frequency and try to focus on how the student can feel comfortable with the M.C.H.S. The sports department is an activity majority of students can look forward to. The way it's conducted can use some work, as in boys basketball, the fund raising last year was the worst I have ever experienced. Parents involvement are not formal announced nor do not get any contacted or notified. Could really use lots of work.

I think that this school is horrible. The principle is not doing a good job. Their is only a select few of teachers that teach right. I would never recommend this school.
