I think the main reason there are drugs in this school is because it is so close to Bullscreek, that is where most of the drugs come from. And most of the problems can't all be blamed on the kids, it all starts with what they learn & see at home. Parents need to teach their children respect & kindness, not show them that fighting, drinking, & drugs are a normal way of life. My son is in 9th grade & has never had a problem with drugs or respecting the teachers, the only problems he has had is with bullies, and most of the bullies he has had to deal wtih were from Bullscreek. But overall CKHS is a good school, and the teachers do care about the kids here!!

The high school is much different then the elementary school, at the high school they have good teachers and a good principle that really care about your child unlike the elementary school.

I graduated from this school back in 1989. Now i have two kids that go to school there.Yes there is drugs and bulling their. At this school if you don't have the name or money you are a nobody.But the teachers do do a good job. As far where the kids go you need to look at the parents. If they would correct their kids more other kids wouldn't get hurt. My daughter has problems (medical) and the teachers are great with her it's the kids that she hates there. Kids are cruel no matter where you go because it starts at home with the parents.

Claysburg is being over run by druggies,and kids that destroy other peoples property. As far as the teachers,well if you want your kids to get a good education , dont move to claysburg , there has been teachers that were sexual preditors and are still teaching, and most of the teachers have there favorite picks and dont worry about the rest of the students trying to learn.If you want your child to be safe and in a drug free environment don't choose this school

Claysburg is a tight-knit community. The teachers are very caring of their student's education needs. I graduated from Claysburg in 2004 and am now in college. I feel that Claysburg did an excellent job at preparing me for college. The high school finally offers AP courses, which is long overdue. The music, art and extracurricular activities at Claysburg are highly suppport. Parent particiation in school activities and student lives is very apparent in this community. Also, the school has just undergone a major renovation. If you're looking for a nice, small, lower-middle class neighborhood then Claysburg's the place to be.

Very poor quality of academics here. There is so much apathy in both students and teachers; students don't want to learn and teachers don't want to teach for the most part. Great place to send your kids if they're of below average intelligence but otherwise it's terrible. There are only a select few extracurricular activities besides a few basic sports. Level of parent involvement is quite low, unless they're coming in to complain about a low grade received on a paper they wrote for their child.

If you want your child to be safe and in a drug free environment don't chose this school. The wrestling team got caught for hazing and the school did nothing to the students. People go unpunished while 'good' students are penalized. I strongly encourage anyone who has a bright, intelligent child to find another school. The only good thing is they have great teachers but the administration is worthless.
