Currently ranked in the top 5-10% of all public high schools in the state based on growth and progress as indicated by test scores. CHS also exceeds both the state and national graduation rate. Great experience at CHS.

I am a parent of a student who is in his second year at Clinton High. Under the leadership of new principal Eric Snyder positve things are happening at Clinton High. Mr Snider is devoted to doing things the right way. Student test scores are improving, student and teacher morale is high, and more programs are being offered. The science & health departments are exceptional. By offering new student incentive programs, discipline issues are low. Clinton High offers a wide variety of honors and advanced placement classes. Students are challenged but not overwhelmed. A support program is in place for student who may struggle. Clinton High is very diverse in offering extracurricular opportunities in the arts, academics, athletics, & special interests. Clinton High is one of the reasons Clinton Tennessee was recently chosen as the number one city in Tennessee to raise a family. Let me be the first to welcome you to Clinton.

I graduated from CHS in 2006. I can honestly say that high school was an amazing experience filled with caring teachers and support staff that truly put the student first, a wonderful and exciting marketing program, school unity within the student body, and all in all a great school. I'm now about to graduate from TN Tech University with a teaching degree and I can only hope and pray to be placed in a school that is as great as Clinton High School.

Great school with caring teachers. Wonderful guidance office. I have a child with a form of Autism and the teachers here are a big part of the success he has had in high school.

I am a current student at clinton high school graduating in the top of our class, Clinton has around one quality, dedicated teacher in each department, and others are at best, sub-par. No challenge is presented to the students by a majority of the teachers. The only way to succeed at Clinton is if the student is willing to take their education into their own hands. The administration is distant and sports are by all means mediocre with minimal support by the school and community. Only a small number of AP classes are offered. Opportunity is there for improvement but must come by inspiring teachers as much as students to better themselves in eduacation

The Most Ridiculous School

- submitted by a student

July 23, 2008
As a graduate of CHS, I can honestly tell you that Clinton is a very typical public school in many respects: a student can achieve an excellent education if he or she desires; if the student doesn't, then as long as he or she isn't too problematic, they'll float their way through to a diploma. Athletics receive the most funding but also generate the most revenues. Opportunities abound, but again, that remains up to the individual student. Ultimately, CHS is just a 'good' school - certainly not bereft of achievers and accomplishments but certainly not particularly stellar.

I have had two sons who have graduated from Clinton High School and done very well. One is now a PhD student in engineering while the other is an undergraduate in engineering and is doing well. Both of them played basketball at Clinton High and had a great experience with that. Academically, I feel CHS is strong in sciences and English department, but lacking in math. Also, I feel that the discipline is escessive, but this is due to the many factors outside of the school's control. All extracurricular activities suffer due to lack of funds. Parent involvement struggles. I also think local politics causes CHS to get the back seat to the other two high school in the county. However, the teachers at CHS care greatly about the students and many have raised their own kids in Clinton and send their kids to CHS.

I have two children in CHS now and one who graduated in 2001. While my children have maintained high GPA's and are involved in various excurricular activities, I am distressed by the lack of leadership and the paranoia of the present principal. I am also concerned about the lack of community recognition and financial support for the high school band. This phenomenal music program competes regularly at a national level, and builds strong, well-disciplined minds and bodies in its members. But their sense of pride is not shared by the school administration, whose 'support' largely consists of allowing the students to leave school early once a year for a national competition. There are several outstanding teachers in language and science. The guidance department is helpful if you go find them. For our family, the band program has been the part of the school that made our children's experiences outstanding.

I have had 3 children who attend/attended CHS. My 2 oldest are now excelling in college,I feel that they were very well perpared for the next level after leaving CHS. My youngest is maintaining a high gpa while he is currently a junior. He is active in sports as well as the music dept. He is also taking honor classes, so that I feel he has the benifeit of a well balanced education. I don't know any place that the teachers would be more caring and interested in meeting the needs of a student. One went so far as to tudor my daughter her freshmen year of college after graduating high school when she was struggling with chemistry.(It worked as she is now a senior at UT with a 3.9 majoring in bio-chem. )My other daughter maintains a 3.5 and is well on her way to becoming a teacher!

I think that this school is very traditional in thier views and dont allow children to express any type of individuality.
