i went to the school scene fourth grade to 9th grade it a really good school would trade it fjor the world
—Submitted by a student

Well I have attended this school all of my life and I feel that this school does not care about the academics. Yes, our school is more focused on sports than anything. I do not recommend this school to anyone!
—Submitted by a student


Posted July 3, 2007

The whole school district at Clarksville has a major breakdown in priorities. The administration is more worried about how big their paychecks can be, and less worried about the quality of education the schools are providing. They have/had some great teachers, but tend to run them off with no real reason. I would not want my children to attend these schools.

I am a student at Clarksville High School. I agree that the problem is not with academics, it is with discipline. I think that the student and scores of Clarksville would be a lot better if the students themselves cared. The teachers are great, the curriculum is great, but the behavioral issues are a big problem. Anyway, I hope I could help.

I am a student of CLarksville High and I think that this school could do better. The school is a place where education isn't the key source. Discipline is. The academic programs are great though. At Clarksville your child will feel as if he/she is at a prison.

Clarksville High School is a low down dirty school. Every parent should take their child out of that school. The children don't learn anything at the school.The teachers don't want to help the children they just want to get the children out of their way.
