There are many great opportunities (sports, clubs, activities) for students at St. Clair ... many more than when I attended. If the student is getting encouragement from home and has confidence in their abilities, their education will be a good foundation for college. The college credit offered is a great incentive. The teachers I have dealt with have been very responsive and quick to get back with me when I have questions, and two of my daughter's teachers I would grade an A+. In my experience, the teachers and staff have been there to assist my daughter, offer her encouragement, and help with work as needed. I have heard of the drug problems in school, but unfortunately that epidemic is everywhere and a problem for parents, teachers and students.
I give this school zero stars. The teachers have joined in on bullying and don't stop it. They don't care about the safety of your child or their education. But don't let your child miss a day of school, because all your child is to them is a dollar sign. The teachers, staff, and principles are horrible. Your child will be surrounded by drugs and bullies!
The faculty at SCHS is, for the most part, concerned about the students and their academic achievement. The band program and music booster program is excellent. However, SCHS has suffered from a high rate of turnover in administration. This has also affected discipline.
I am a graduate of St. Clair High School. I loved my time at the school. SCHS prepared me for college. I graduated with 12 college credit hours. I took 3 dual enrollment classes my senior year. The counselors encouraged me to take a night class at a near by community college. When it comes to academics it depends on the student. I took a lot of college prep classes and keep my days full. My brother took the classes he needed to graduate. His senior year he only had two academic classes, the rest was fluff classes. They have a range of sports and extracurricular activities. They don't offer some of the non traditional sports such as hockey, swimming, or field hockey. The sports and other activities are the same at all the schools in the district.
I go to St. Clair High School, and I believe that most kids that attend the school like it pretty well. There are some rules that not all the students agree are fair, but overall most wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Most of the teachers are great.... but as in all schools there are a few that the students have a problem with but overall I like attending SCHS.
I just graduated from St.Clair. It is one of the best schools that I have ever been too. This school has great teachers they really care about the students. They have a lot of sports that the students can get into. I am really going to miss St.Clair High School.
We just recently moved here, my daughter attended St Clair High for most of her junior year. She liked it because the dress code is more lenient than her former school. I liked the staff, but the school doesn't offer any college credit courses, so in her senior year, she will have 2 classes each day of 'blow-off' classes, rather than getting a jump start on her college career.
