This has to be by far te worst school I have ever gone to.. I'm a senior ere and I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. So if you are planning to go here then might as well change plans and send them to Clear Creek high school because at least there you might get noticed. At this school if you aren't in sports you are absolutely nothing. The band is horrible,and the sports aren't really good either. I went to my consular and she told me she didn't care why I was absent all she wanted me to do was to come to school only because I missed a few days due to a very bad illness. So if you are planning to send your child here please don't.. The teachers don't really make an effort to teach and the students are very self absorbed and rude.

I am a graduate from this school, and I feel I was adequately prepared for college, with AP courses and other rigorous programs. AMAZING engineering program here, students built a plane last year. Successful culinary arts program, sweepstakes choir, orchestra and band, very successful sports teams (many programs made it to or nearly to state). State champs in girls track. Girls basketball made it to state. Football is consistently successful. Basically, all of the extracurricular programs are top notch. The teachers here are wonderful, in my experience all the teachers I had genuinely cared about my education and my life. The administration is my one complaint. They have good intentions but the carry out leaves a bit to be desired. Mostly these problems are with the assistant principals. The principal is very nice and is always at events/supporting the school. Not a clique-y school, which is quite different from the other schools in CCISD. Best high school in the district, hands down, and I know this because I attended two of the others.

I will be a senior this year, and I absolutely love this school. The kids here are generally supportive and nice to each other - there are no cliques or any of that (honestly, the middle school I moved from was worse). I feel that we are fairly unified as a student body. With (very) few exceptions, the teachers are fantastic. I have been challenged, enlightened, and well taught by nearly all of my teachers in my time here. They are dedicated and I give them big props for sticking it out when they have to deal with the administration. While I recognize the merit and need for rules, the administration goes too far in rules and enforcements. I've seen people sent home for knee-length skirts, etc. With one exception, the administration does not respect or trust the students and treats us like criminals before we even do anything wrong. I was very close to attending Creek or Falls, and every day I thank God for ending up at Clear Springs. I truly have a love of this school, and the people who attend and work here. In addition, the fine arts and sports programs are PHENOMENAL. I highly reccomend this school - best high school in the district, hands down.

From a faculty member point of view you do NOT want to work for this school. It is filled with politics and bullying by Administration and other faculty members. You either do as they say or you will be threatened with a bad reference if you try to leave AND they think they can make you do ANYTHING they request because it is in your "other duties as assigned" portion of your contract. This means every teacher must sponsor a club and receive no stipend. Every teacher must work multiple evening events, weekend events, events in the summer beyond their contract, and you are expected to cooperate or else they put you through grief until you resign. If you are a work addict who does not mind going WAY above and beyond your job duties with little or No appreciation what so ever, if you are a "puppet" and like constant control, OR if you do not mind putting your family second than this is the job for you! From an outsiders prospective the school is good for students and the students are great! I hope the parents realize how fortunate they are to have such dedicated teachers who sacrifice time with their own children to teach other people's children. I hope this helps slow turnover rate.

Only a few years old. Clear Springs is not a bad school. Out of CCISD I must say it is one of the best. All though the staff isn't the smartest and they are very persistent on stupid rules. They keep controll. I belive other schools are run a little better. But all in all clear springs is good. The teachers are all wonderful and friendly some more then others. They have wonderful programs you can exceed in. Education is wonderful. I love it :)

Great school, great academics, great extra-curricular programs, and a staff that works to ensure academics come first while still allowing the kids to be involved in multiple activities. Principal is not the brightest, but the rest of the teaching staff outweighs that.

As a senior this year, I have found the last few years to be disappointing to say the least. Many of the teachers and administrative staff are hard to deal with, display a surprising amount of ignorance, and routinely make no common sense at all. The school is poorly designed, and administrated even worse. It seems like many of the other schools are run much better and more efficiently. There are of course some good teachers but they are the minority, unfortunately.

All in all, it is a great school! I will be a junior this upcoming year and cant wait to take my AP courses. Though Im not looking forward to all my foot, shoulder, and back aches from all the book that the school loads on us kids. Seriously if the school wants more money they should never of spent it on getting us lockers. For the past two years I never used it. I could never get from one side of the school to the next and still have time to stop at my locker. And the SLC's our school puts us in? They do NOTHING. Oh wow. I'm part of this SLC, I get this lunch. Doesnt help much with where your classes are placed. And I feel as if the staff could definatly refine their planning skills. But all in all GREAT PLTW PROGRAM!! WOO!!

Clear Springs is a great school. It is a really fun school, too. I've been at it for both years. It offers lots of extra-curriculars that most schools don't have. Also, to the person who said that they don't teach enough vocabulary, I had atleast one vocabulary test each week for most of the year and it wasn't an AP Class. Plus, everyone makes typeos now and then.

This school has some great programs to offer and the school is still nice since it's new. My child has had all Pre-AP classes and is doing well in his classes. He's always been a popular kid, easy to get along with, yet here he has kids bullying him. In all of his school years, this has never happened. The adults at the school turn a blind eye to what is going on. I have heard from other parents that this is happening to their students too. It seems to be a lot of the same kids doing the bullying yet the administration and teachers do nothing. This school could be outstanding with all the programs offered (Culinary Arts, Auto Tech, Veterinary Assistant, etc.). It can't be placed in that category if the students hate going because of other kids.

A wonderful school. My only complaint is the number of out of district parents sneaking their kids in. Hard to blame them.....it's the best school around.

It has been a wonderful year at Clear Springs in 2009, with all the extra-curriculars offered at this school. HOSA, Debate, Media Tech, and Tennis are some of the funnest organizations I could possibly join. However the honors classes are quite challenging and rigorous. I think the homework load should be lowered a slight bit. Its way too much for a student to handle... But the teachers, counselors and administrators work wonderfully with me throughout the year. I am fully proud to say that I am a Charger!

And that is why you can't spell especially? I feel there is not enough attention placed on spelling, phonetics, or vocabulary. My grandchild was in AP classes and had 0 spelling or vocabulary skills.

It is now a second year school and it still has not worked out its 'kinks.' The administrators need to think about how students feel trying to carry EVERYTHING around with us. Teachers have complained about the books we carry and still they REFUSE to buy more so we don't have to lug 10-20 pound bags through the school. Very few students actually have time to go to their lockers in between class. In fact, I haven't been to mine at all this year, i don't know what number it was and i don't know the combination. Why? because i have never been i don't have time to go and my teachers all want their books and their binders brought to their class. Last year half of us just started dragging our bags because they were so heavy. They are to hard on us as students. We're still kids, loosen up...please.

What good does it do to assign lockers to students if they are NEVER allowed to go to them? What good does it do to assign homework if the student if prevented from bringing home the textbooks that the homework is taken from? What good does it do for the administration to force fit every students educational problems to the administrations favorate solution? As a parent I don not believe for a minute that this administration has the education of students as its primary purpose. I have met with these people and they are very big on excuses and very short on performance.

this school has a lot of bugs to work out still. s a student, things could be done a lot more effectively, but it is only the first year. i think they should have a student suggestion paper passed around the advisories to see what the students would like to change for next year.
