Just about as good as most schools can get. Some things I don't agree with, but that's just a part of life.
Clear Brook High School is sub-par, to say the least. There are plenty of classes available for students who simply need to graduate, but the school is lacking in opportunities for true enrichment. Some feeble attempts are made at offering enrichment to gifted students, but overall these are truly insufficient. Outlets such as the GT advisory and AP classes are not ways to help students grow intellectually, merely serving to make the school look better. The school is also constantly losing top students to schools like Clear Lake which offer more to higher achieving students and have a friendlier atmosphere. Many of the teachers there are not motivated to stimulate their students and openly admit to giving busy work regularly. A biology teacher of mine informed the class that humans under the age of 21 only use their brain stems to function, and do not use their cerebrum. Though there are several inspiring teachers at Clear Brook, they simply cannot make up for those who make life at Clear Brook a draining experience.
I hated this school. My son was constantly bullied by his peers and also by school officials. And no one did anything about it when he asked for help. They let the boy who bullied my son go free and my son had to suffer the consequences. It was to the point where my son nearly took his own life. There is no discipline for school officials there.
Clear Brook High School is an awesome school....great kids, great teachers. It has strong, vibrant extracurricular programs that encourage parents to be very active in their student's activities. Teachers are very approachable and willing to work with each student's specific needs. I just wish I had more children to send to Clear Brook!
I'm a senior in this school and I love this school. Hearing so many rumors about Clear Brook about how bad it is makes me angry because all they've heard is one thing about Clear Brook and they actually believed it. I've been at this school and I like the people, the teachers, and the administrators. The school gives a lot of cool classes such as, CBTV, Chinese, French, and many other classes, not a lot of school can offer what Clear Brook has. Clear Brook students are unique. In many schools you see the types of cliques, the goth, nerds, jocks, and etc. Everyone here in Brook are all together. It's like Mix It Up Day everyday. I have to say that when I graduate, I'm going to miss this school and teachers.
Great school, Excellent teachers, they always help students whow are new in school, i enjoy my days in Brook.
Clear Brook is Awesome. We love and care about every single one of our kids.
i hate the rules that they made up at the school this year. It's ridiculous.
Clear Brook High School is such an awesome school for students who want to learn and make great memories.
This school teaches me good things in life i would not let my kid go to otter school if i was a parent man clear brook rocks!!!:D
I love this school. i was a student in this school for 3 years. and the were the best years ever. they have some teachers and they are the best teachers i've ever had. especially Ms.Carlson she was my english teacher.
I like the school. I am really glad they have the K12 for the parents can check and see how the child is doing from time to time. That is wonderful.
I have not been happy at all with this school, if I could I would go back to home schooling. Why is there no discipline from the school officials.
After attending three high schools, my perspective on the quality education Clear Brook gave me has changed since I was a student there. Brook offers a positive, diverse environment with teachers who are highly supportive and effective. All the extracurricular programs were phenomenal, I was involved in many of them. They offer a great chance for students to get to know each other in a healthy environment and learn what it feels like to have school pride. While there is a heavy emphasis on sports, there are few high schools in Texas that don't place the same weight on their athletic program. Within the Clear Creek ISD, Brook offers the best environment to prepare students for the real world beyond high school- whether that is higher education or private industry. I highly recommend it.
My daughter has benefited greatly from the Clear Brook HS Theater Department under the leadership and guidance of Ms. Donna Taylor. Ms. Taylor is phenomenal.
We have found our experience with Clear Brook to be positive and my daughter thoroughly enjoys attending school there. The office staff, principals and counselors we have met have all been most helpful and courteous. There have some teachers who are not willing to speak with a parent should a problem arise with school work, but most of the teachers we have dealt with have been easy to deal with and very willing to answer any questions or address any concerns we have. Parent involvement is good for a school this size, anyone not involved is not willing to be involved. We look forward to our daughter graduating soon and our other daughter attending Clear Brook High School.
Drugs and violence are present and obvious in this school. Running the school like a prison camp doesn't help. AP classes are great, but the rest are average or below average. When I was a student, the orchestra, band, and drama programs were alright, but I didn't really hear about visual arts. Athletics gets way too much emphasis, considering their records. The JROTC program was excellent. The parental involvement is minimal at best-- the school will send home formal, mass-printed letters upon occassion, and the report cards are issued by mail. A pre-recorded phone message will inform you if your student has any suspicious absenses, as truancy costs the school money, and they can't tolerate losing money that could be used on things like the football team. I transferred to Clear Lake High School for my senior year, and liked it there much better.
We have one student currently enrolled at Clear Brook High School (CBHS), and have had 3 others attend there. Two had excellent experiences and two had difficulty, one had extreme difficulty because they had undetected attention deficit disorder (no hyper-activity). CBHS has many excellent teachers and programs. However, for a student that has issues, like needing to be tested for attention deficit disorder (ADD), CBHS has offered very limited help! We had to have our student tested privately to determine that they were ADD. CBHS indicated that they would wait for the private test results before initiating any help for our student. CBHS also indicated that their process is very slow (30 - 90 days). In my experinece and opinion, the CBHS Administrators and Counselors are understaffed and tend to show more concern about the process than the student. It appears that CBHS prefers to export students with issues instead of helping them.
The most helpful information I could give on Clear Brook is that they have wonderful and inspiring math teachers. They have really good principals too. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Clear Brook.
At Clear Brook there is an abundance of opportunities for students to develop themselves. With one child attending there, and one who will attend next year,our experience thus far has been tops. Our innovative principal cares and is very visible on the campus. Our band teachers and parents are the best!
