Map of Cleburne High School address.

This high school is making great progress preparing our students for the future. The staff and administration is very caring and helpful. The programs available to have students job ready through CTE is way above the programs of many other area schools. Options for students gaining college credit is numerous. The only reason this school did not get a 5 star rating is that the facilities need work. I am very proud that my child is a YellowJacket!

This school constantly changes the administration, faculty, and even the board which continually changes the dynamic of the school. This is both a +/-. If an idea didn't work, it will most likely l be changed for a new idea. Unfortunately, this makes for TOTAL lack of consistency and confusing communication of expectations from administration due to the constant bickering and power struggle. It shows in everything from vice principal's disciplinary decisions to academic expectations of the students and teachers. Students make strong connections here and there seems to be an environment that students readily make strong friendships. I have never seen a "loner" at this school. Another positive are the variety of classes available for students. We have strong leaders in the teachers in the mathematics and the science department, and an excellent construction group. Unfortunately, we need dramatic improvement on too many points to fully address in this post. Some include: age of facility, lack of quality desks, ridiculous daily bell schedule that changes daily, periods are too short, too many classes per day, dramatic student achievement gap, & a manipulative parent group

I just graduated CHS two weeks ago. I love my High school, and always will. GO YELLOWJACKETS!!! Anyway, the teachers are involved with the students and for the most part agree with them that the administration is dictatorship-like, but we don't go to school for the administration, we go for the education, and the teachers get an A-plus when it comes to teaching the students what they need to know for the lives we will lead in the future!

CHS is a great place to be! The administration and staff are supportive and positive and truly love the kids. I am looking forward to the plans on accomodating our growing number of students. With the dual credit courses, highly qualified teachers and extracurricular activiites, the students will be successful wherever they choose to go! I am a proud Cleburne ISD Educator!

I have 4 children that have graduated from CHS. I believe that our school board and CHS staff are very supportive of students. They work to create a positive learning environment. Teachers, counselors, principals, vice-principals, and staff care about students. I like this school.

I think this year will be somewhat better since we have a new principal!!!!!!! yea! The one we had last year was so into himself that it was embarrassing to say my children went to Cleburne High.One thing he was good at was presuming things before it was talked about! I believe in not jumping to conclusions especially if you do not even know what went on.I also think at this school if you have rules they should be enforced for all not just some, you know if you have a certain last name. I believe in fairness. One other thing I have a problem with is that how can a teacher (roll model) do stuff and then in the next breath punishes a student for the same thing!!!!!!!!

This school does not offer enough electives that are appropriate for training non-college bound students. Discipline seems to be strong...providing a safe environment for students. The superintendent does not accept constructive criticism from staff nor community members, resulting in a district that is stagnating. In response to falling TAKS scores, the administration has responded by increasing teacher workloads plus less planning time...and this is somehow supposed to raise scores(?) I'd give this district a C-.

The Principal and Vice Principals are very unfair to students and will side with one another. They have no respect for students. I am a parent that teaches my child respect, but they act a drill sargeants. They have a dress code, but half the time don't abide by it. Some students dress under it and some do as they please. Sports,especially football will always come first to this school before the arts or academics. Most teachers are good here though and children can get a good education if they can survive the horrible office employees. Fights are common on this campus and coaches will not break them up, they believe in fighting it out. Be ware if you are a loving parent.

The class sizes are average for this area. There is a varied amount of class choices, sports and extra circ. activities to be involved in. There is a community college in town which allow student the opportunity to participate in dual credit courses. The majority of school districts in this area on semesters with block schedules including A and B days. However, Cleburne differs by having trimesters. They have the same base five classes M-F for twelve weeks, then they receive five new classes. This may require some adjustment. But overall, administration, teachers and students are a great group to work with. You get out of High School what you put into it. Good luck

This school does not let the young adults grow into their own person. This school acts as if they are my child's parent, and in my household I believe parenting should be done by me.

I think that this school is way to big and the students can't get around fast enough to there classes. I have been there during a passing period and it was a catastrophe!
