This is my childrens first year in a col. public school. Coming from a highly educated school in worthington, clinton is an extream disapointment. The teacher are not prepared when you ask them questions on how your child is doing and what you as a parent can do to help them achieve. This school is by far the worst school i have come acrossed.
Our son will be entering Clinton Kindergarten in the Fall OF 06'. My wife and I are both highly educated professionals and,obviously, we know the value of education and are very concerned about the quality of school to which we are sending our son. During the run-up to Kindergarten, we have both been very impressed by the quality and commitment of the teachers at Clinton. I have always been skeptical of the myth of suburban school superiority. The rate of parent involvement at Clinton already appears to be very high. More than anything, that is the determinant of a quality school. My point: We are confident in our choice of Clinton for our son.
With great schools such as Winterset, Indian Springs or Gables as an alternative choice, I do not know why any parent would send their child to Clinton Elementary school. The staff is overzealous when dealing with children with emotional problems, which they are supposed to specialize in dealing with. If your child is sensitive or has a learning disability I strongly recommend finding another school, otherwise you will be spending an excessive amount of time healing your childs' physical and emotional wounds resulting from the bullying from the other students and the staff at this school.
Clinton has a long history--over one hundred years-- of serving the community in Clintonville. Clintonville residents are committed to the school, and many parents of current students are Clinton alumni. Clinton Elementary has very high test scores, higher than Indianola Alternative, and a strong partnership with the Columbus Literacy Project--an Ohio State Research Project. The art program is exceptional, the library is gorgeous and well-stocked, the principal and the teachers collaborate beautifully to ensure student success, and Clinton parents are extremely involved. The school also has a lovely garden that traces the history of Clintonville in plants--really! Lots of creativity and warmth here. My daughter loves it, and I would recommend Clinton to anyone. Definitely a Columbus Public School's success story.
this school is a great school. my son has been going there for the past 3 years. the teachers are great,
I recommend this school to any parent. The principal is involved with each and every child. The teachers are great and give each child the attention they need. Parents are involved in this school as well. Overall, a great place for a child to get a quality education.
