Montgomery central high school Moved to clarksville in 2011. My eldest went for his senior year and my youngest graduates this year. Very disappointed in the way the school is run. Football program is terrible. Would never recommend this school to anyone. Beware if you move from elsewhere because they treat those students as second class.

This is my daughters junior year at Clarksville High and it has been a good experience. There are lots of clubs, sports, band and choir to participate in and I love the way the school encourages school spirit. Overall a great school.

We are new to TN and my child attends this school now. I would have to say they are too strict at this school. I understand rules are in place for safety reasons but somethings are a little too much. When I was in high school back many years ago in a different state of course, it was somewhat fun. My child is not having any kind of fun at this school. The way they grade here also is crazy. My sons involved in sports so thats what keeps him going. The principal is heartless, dont care to talk with her again if Im lucky. Its a beautiful school though will give them that. Its newer. Just seems that they dont have fun things for them to do like dances, etc.. Its ran like a military school if you ask me.

I only attended CHS for one year, but now that I am out of high school and have attended a local private school, I have a very good opinion of CHS. Although there is the inescapable drama of high school and favoritism towards sports stars, these are not as big as they could be. Of course there is an elite set of kids that gets a great deal of recognition, but that doesn't matter most of the time. The teachers (for the most part) are witty and understanding, and dole out challenging work every day. There's a lot of opportunities to make friends on sports teams and in clubs - I just wish I had come back to CHS my senior year! This is probably the best school in Clarksville. My only real complaint - No swimming pool, and the guidance counselors are hard to get to.

I am a proud CHS graduate. The academics are strong as well as the activities. While at CHS I had many opportunties including going to London, and Orlando. As far as those who say not any 'gifted' programs or extra help, have you tried checking with guidance? There are many AP classes and teachers who are more than willing to go the extra mile to help students. I know this because many of them are friends or parents of my friends. High School is what you make of it.

Clarksville High School is a great school. I have 3 kids going through it. Too bad for the couple of negative comments here on this site. My kids have been successful and have enjoyed their experience. The curriculum is rigorous and relevant. They are on track to attend college, and all are involved in extracurricular activities. High School is what you put into it...hard work and effort do pay off.

Clarksville High School is average...there are fights. I had issues in trying to get a tutor because they don't have a program for that. I had to ask the teachers to stay after school--only one stayed after to help me. I was failing, and no one wanted to help because they thought I was another 'lost cause,' but I was REALLY begging them. Once that didn't work I just did extra activities on the side(band and chorus) but in the end I dropped out because I felt like a lot of the teachers have given up. The whole(no child left behind is a crock!)

It was great...both academically adn athletically. I was always challenged both in the classroom and on the field. They paid attention to individual needs and built leaders, not followers. Please dismiss the negative view. 2 and half years....lol, some of us stayed in school.

i recently graduated from clarksville high. it was the best school around, and i attend MCHS & RHS. Visited the rest of them, but out of all i liked clarksville high. the faculty, students, teachers, were the best ever. there were a few confrontations with teachers never understanding and losing paperwork from the students, other than that, everything was good. i loved the enviroment! our basketball team was by far the best ever, and shall continue with coach ted young.

I could beg to differ with the review below. I went there for 2 and a half years. I almost failed a class because the teacher was off getting sick becuase she decided to have a 5th kid. Not the best if u ask me and the school enviroment, ughhh, too many fights and it was never really all that clean. Do something before more kids drop out!!!

I am About to be a Junior at Clarksville High school and i couldnt imagine going to a better school. The Teachers treat the Students as if they were their own kids. I have learned so much at Clarksville High school, they even teach alot of life skills at clarksville high. This may be the best high school in the country!
