Literally, the best school ever. I am onto my third high school now due to moving a lot but this one was the best by far. It prepares you well and the teachers are well trained. Sometimes homework can get tough and you struggle in the beginning but by the end of each year you really feel like you've accomplished something. Oh, and whether you are in the top %10 or not.. this school is recognized across the country and most colleges are ready to accept a student from here. :)

Although Clements can be tiring and mentally and physically exhausting (trust me, I rode a bus for 2 hours everyday just to attend this school), it is the best school I have been to in my entire life. I feel more prepared for college than I ever have. Clements exposes you to the real world like few other schools can.

I totally agree with the pervious reviewers. The AP teachers are not qualified to teach. All they do is just hand out the most difficult tasks to see who can do it. Math and English tutors for Clements top students are making $65 or more per hour, but you will not able to get them there is a long waitlist. These tutors don't even have a degree. Go figure. A lot of parents have been complaining but no changes have occurred. Many of my neighbors send their children to private school. Some move to a different school to play the top 10% college game in Texas. Think twice before going to this school. If you do you will be paying lot of money for tutoring or end up paying tax for public school and the tutoring and pay for private school tuition.

I think Clements is a great school but I will say that after reading the reviews I will Agree Clements sets the bar extremly high and if u r not a book worm U will struggle. I agree that biology has to be one of the most difficult subject at Clements Over 75% of the kids struggle my son being one of them And he tells me that most of the students have the struggles in Bioligy and there is great emphasis on AP classes with little HELP from staff. I do believe they prepare u for college and Has a higher ranking above privates schools. It is a safe school None violent environment and I really enjoy that about the school.

I have to also say that my daughter repeated biology at the school and mentioned it to a peer. The peer told her that she cheated and passed biology. This isn't the first instance my daughter has told me about the cheating there. It is rampant. There is so much pressure on the kids with two - three tests each week, and two - three quizzes each week that is becomes a race for grades, attendance and passing. Ask your child about the cheating. Some teachers monitor, some could care less and some target. Just have your child study, maintain attendance and be the best he or she can be. FBISD HS are all pretty bad with discipline problems, cliques and teacher turn-over because the schools are getting over-populated with the growth in the area. Clements is worth the trouble. There are good people there and good administrators that do care. Just maintain contact with them. Remember, Clements is already over its student population because everyone wants to attend. I'm glad the school keeps up with attendance so that my daughter knows she needs to attend everyday.

Amazing school I spent my last four years there. And I wasn't the best or anythin its just i tried and studied hard and I graduated with a 5.1 gpa. It prepares you well for college. I still had enough time to socialize along with three extracuricular activities. It definitely deserves five stars.

As a former student of Clements, I know how hard it can be. I am not a naturally smart person, I had to work hard for the grades I got and sometimes working hard wasn't enough. I struggled a lot with math and science. In the end 3 points were what got me across that stage at graduation. Now don't get me wrong my average was a 2.8 out of 4. Not great, but I made mostly b's. I had a few ap classes. Problem is, after school tutorials didn't help. The teachers just did what they did in class. Basically you worked on your own. About 70% of the people who passed science cheated on every single test. I refused to cheat and this got a 69. Then had to re take it, and got a 73. There are some teachers who care but the ones who needed to, didn't. I never even met my councelor in all the four years I went there. When it was time to apply for college I didn't even know how. Oldest child. No school help. Parents went to school but they didn't have to do half te things we do. So I am at community college. Cuz I didn't fill out applications in time. I wih the school took everyone into consideration and not just the jocks and top 10%

This school does not allow you to have a life... too much homework, too stressful, huge weed drug problem (if you are into athletics), and horrible teaching. they expect you to read the textbook every night, teach yourself, and take a test the next morning. They also pile you with tons of homework and don't realize that children also need time with their family and outside of school stuff. very disappointing... everyone competes for top 10% but of course only 10% of the people get there- mostly only the Asians. in fact. if you are white, you are automatically labeled "dumb" and your only hopes is to excel through athletics... this school was a huge regret. however, college is easy-peasy if you graduate. :)

Clements certainly does prepares you for college but the some of the staff are very rude and unreasonable. One teacher in particular always used to tell us how stupid we were and assumed we never learned anything in junior high. Sometimes she would tell us not to take notes and to learn "by ourselves". Although it is understandable, I would like more than just a textbook to rely on when I take an exam. Some of the newer teachers are nicer and understanding when it comes to tests. As much as I love this school I wish the staff would understand I also have stuff to attend to at home other than homework and studying.

Everyone makes Clements sound really tough but it's not that bad. Sure some kids stay up all night studying but that's only because they're taking harder classes than they can handle. I for one am taking 6 pre-AP/AP courses and made it into top 10%. I do around an hour of homework a night and a few on the weekend. There's still a lot of time to have fun and hang out. People have to realize Clements is going to be more competitive than other schools. That's what you signed up for going to the best high school in the district. It's not as bad as you may think just don't stress out.

This school highlights it's Global Learning Academy on their webpage, however, they do not accept Washington World Studies Credit for People to People Travel. Students who travel with this group in the summer and sign up to get class credit are required to homework that relates to cultural diversification as it applies to economics, politics, psychology and other topics. I am surprised Clements High School does not recognize this even as an elective. I think they are so narrowly focused on their own suburban community they can't practice what they preach.

My daughter will be a graduating Senior for the Class of 2012. My daughter has mentioned she has a few friends who had to with draw from Clements and attend a private school instead. This decision was based that the curriculum was too hard at Clements and that they could not compete for the top 10 percent of their class. I told my daughter that I was not so concerned for her to make the top 10 in her class but to compete and do well. She has played varsity athletics all four years and is graduating with academic awards. She will be attending a 4 year university on an academic scholarship. I agree if you can compete, learn to priortized and have good study/homework skills any student can learn After visiting multiple colleges/universities it's not just Clements that push AP courses. Every school is doing that. They want to see kids taking more pre-AP and college credit courses. This does not mean your average student cannot do just as well. I feel the 4 years that my daughter has been at Clements has prepared her for college this fall. Parents have to be involved with their childrens teachers. They need to keep an open communication.

I wish I had never attended Clements. As a student that has attended Clements High School for all four years, I can say, beyond any reasonable doubt, that these have been miserable years. Students here do not focus on the passion, rigor, and breadth of learning and instead ask, "What do I need to know to get an A, and elevate my GPA?" The teachers assign piles of busy work that leaves students stressed. Competition is healthy, yes, but not at the expense of learning. The school's aesthetic value is also nonexistent with few windows and fluorescent, narrow little halls for 2,000+ students. A smaller, healthier environment that encourages learning would be infinitely better.

I have not wanted to post this because it is still so upsetting for me to even think about, but the previous post has me thinking otherwise. I had a horrible run in with an AP at Clements. I had tried to contact her for three days through email and leaving messages, but to no avail. I was extremely concerned about my child and her mental health. A VERY serious issue. Friday afternoon, I call and leave a message (again) with her secretary, that if I did not hear from her by the end of the day I would have to go over her head. She calls me shortly after that and proceeded to tear into me and tell me she's busy and shame on me for threatening her secretary. I was in tears by the end of the phone call. She even had the nerve to put me on speakerphone so the entire office could hear me crying. I am a teacher myself, so I know know how badly the AP handled this. Shame on her, and shame on the principal for not taking a more serious approach. The entire situation was about my child. But this AP seemed determined to make it all about her. How unprofessional.

Not safe. A Principal actually protected a student that threatened physical harm to my child. The district as well as the school was so uncooperative that my child was left with one choice, to withdraw completely. The school didn't even tell me about paperwork that had to be filled out when reporting a bullying incident. They purposely omitted that info. I am Clements Alum and I thought it would be great for my child to go to my Alma Mater. But I'm very disappointed. The principal broke the law and nothing happens. Instead my child's education is severely damaged.

Overwhelming sadness that permiates through the walls. Unheathly competativeness that teaches kids learning is not important. Class rank and SAT scores are the only thing that matters...

My daughter graduated from Clements 3 years ago and my son is currently a sophmore at Clements. It has a competitive academic environment and the student must be willing to take mostly AP and Honors classes if they want to be in the top 20% of their class. This is good or bad depending on your student. Most teachers hold before of after school tutoring sessions four days a week. Students must take the initiative to seek help. My daughter went to a small highly rated private school and has been very successful. Many of her peers came exclusive private schools in our area and struggled to be successful. Clements prepared her to succeed in college. If you want your student to have loads of free time this is not the school for you. Students who excel will be spending several hours every night doing homework assignments and preparing for exams. However, my son has had the time to become an Eagle Scout and a Black Belt in Karate so there is still time for extra curricular activities but your student needs to be organized.

This year started out kind shaky with adjusting to a new school and highschool itself. Our experience so far is that it is a great school. A huge part of the success of the school is the make-up families and students who attend CHS. This school is dominated by a majority of students who want to do well and achieve a lot with their future careers. This school is able to focus on academics rather than discipline. It is not overwhelming but maybe challenging at times but very achievable by the average student who works har.

This school is not what people say it is. To name a few, the dress code is barely enforced, really not at all. The staff doesnt listen to the students or hear them out. They dont work with students really well, unless youre more of the popular crowd. The school parking lot, you pay thirty dollars to park, seniors get spots, but they dont enforce other students not parking there. You have to be a junior or a senior yet freshmen, softies and people who didnt pay park their anyways. The school work is crap. Some teachers dont care, others press to hard to fast. It's just a down right no. It was a mistake to transfer thinking it'll help me, but I take two courses, BIMM and WEB with the same teacher, and there's not much different in the class like the course description said. Sad.

In my opinion, as a foreigner living in the US for just 3 years, most of the criticism I've read in those comments is inherent to the american society, like competitiveness and an open privilege to the top students, which is just natural, as I heard that most kids are just not interested at all. We found out soon enough that the only way of getting a reasonably decent class would be taking AP and Honors courses, where the 75% kids that are not interested wouldn't disturb. I'm amazed to see that once you've made your decision to go for it, the contents of the AP and Honors courses compare to all other hightly considered High Schools in Europe and South America and completely disagree that it all comes down to mermorization. All the AP and Honors courses propose lots of challenge, promoting critical thinking.

I am a former student of Clements. It seems, by reading the reviews, very little has changed in some areas. I remember having anywhere from 50 to 200 questions in science due the next day. Some of the teachers were amazing & others (including counselors) didn't look at you if you weren't in the top 10%. However, if a student plans to go to college it is important for them to learn to be self-disciplined & gain good time management skills. Also understand that a teacher will not always be avaliable, but there are other options (people) to go to for help.

We moved to California this summer and my son is now a junior in a high school here. Prior to this school year, he had attended CWE, FSMS, and CHS his first 2 years of high school. I have always been very involved with my children's schooling, especially my son, so I know what my son went and go through. While it's true that the perceived academic atmosphere, the level of desire that students and parents personally possess to distinguish themselves, might be very high in CHS, the amount of actual homework, quizzes, and examinations are a lot less there than here in California. This california High School only got a rating of '9', compared to CHS's '10', so go figure.

I really don't know. People say that Clements is a wonderful school and all, but in reality, well at least in my opinion, it's awful. The teachers are inconsiderate and gives so much homework every night so that it's mandatory to stay up until 12. They give tests and quizzes every single week, sometimes even twice a week. They don't care if you have a major exam tomorrow, they just add on more things to do. I take all Pre-AP Honors courses, and it's just too hard. I had straight A's throughout middle school, but now I barely have a B. This is not just my problem, it's also true for a lot of other students. The teachers here grade hard, gives loads of homework everyday, and all they have to do is just sit there and grade papers. All classes are just 'self learning'.

I'm sorry to say that I have been extremely disappointed with Clements. The teachers I had were sometimes unfair and seemed to care for the top students more. I thought that teaching quality and experience varied greatly even between teachers teaching the same subject. The Preap/honors classes I took were based on mostly rote memorization, which doesn't allow for hands-on learning. I've yet to see the administration take action against the academic dishonesty here. The learning environment and extracurriculars are fairly good. This school looks great on paper due to the demographics. In the end, this school was not for me, since it was just too competitive (academically, socially). I thought the facility is not adequate for the large student body. I think Clements may be good for some talented students, but the vast majority would thrive elsewhere. Just my opinion...

I graduated from Clements a few years ago. The students at Clements are very motivated, high achieving, and get accepted to many top universities. Yes, it's rigorous, and some of the teachers are ridiculous and unfair, but that is life. There will be some ridiculous professors in college that students will need to learn how to deal with. Most teachers at Clements will be there either before or after school to help students, but students need to take the initiative to get the help. On the other hand there are some decent teachers there who care about their students and love their job. The fine arts program in particular is very strong. All in all, Clements helped me in college in terms of work ethic and study habits, but I guess it's all what you make of it.

If you want to rank the education it provides, this school deserves a 2. If you a looking for healthy competition and look upon the strength of the school as an evaluation, then this school easily scores a 5. First, the quality of the student is far superior to any other school in its districts. When Clements is at its peak, it has more PSAT Semi-Finalist than all the other schools in the district combined, but this quality comes from the student's insanely strong abilities. Many of the elites have placed in the top 10 in nation before coming to high school. As a result, the competition is insanely hard. As for teaching, this school is pretty inconsistent. While there are decent AP teachers, but the school as a whole is weak at teaching. The teachers usually love to focus on strong students and have an unfair bias toward others.

Although Clements is a nationally recognized high school, I believe that the quality of the teachers is significantly below average. The reason for the high test scores is confounded by the socioeconomic status of the students who attend this school and does not necessarily reflect the quality of the school itself. Also, there is a strong focus on materialism. We are now looking at private schools. Enough said.

Some of the teachers were best in the state until many retired, but the legacy still burns strongly in a few teachers as well as the deptartments. Top-notch extracurricular. Parent involvement is great for a public school. No school has enough parent involvement. Safe? Some schools have fights every day. Clements doesn't even have a fight every year. Although it may seem overrated, Clements seriously beats most schools in all categories. Teachers help everyone but some students seek it. Students tend to feel the immorality (cheating/unfairness) because of their virtue and the schools honor code.

I graduated from Clements in 2000. Thanks in part to the academic riggor of Clements and the mostly fantastic teachers I had, I will be graduating from the University of Virginia this year. I felt Clements had the resources to give me the opportunity to truly excell in any extracurricular or academic activities that I wanted. I found the school to be very diverse in character, though homogenous in economic background. This meant that there were a myriad of interests and a wide variety of vices. A great majority of students were good students, and good people. However, in any place where kids can affort to do drugs, they are going to get their hands on them somehow, and Clements is no exception. More generally, kids are going to make mistakes. All of my friends have gone on to Colleges all over the country, and have stayed in. While the AP and honors classes are an excellent way for students to challenge themselves and advance themselves, they are absolutely not necessary for success. Remember...its just high school. Its supposed to be fun.

Clements provides an atmosphere where the kids feel safe. As far as the academics, there appears to be an elite group of academically brilliant students that the school, in general, seems to feed off, and consequently the majority of normal but bright kids are made to feel somewhat inferior. If a student is taking all 'advanced' classes, it is not considered anything special as it would be in most other schools. Many of the teachers at Clements, specifically the 'honors' teachers will not take the time to work with ordinary kids, it is easier to let them fall through the cracks. They prefer to point out the brilliant students, which quite honestly, those kids do not need the teacher. Academically there is an underlying sadness at this school where the majority of kids never feel they are quite good enough.

Clements is definitely a school that has high educational standards. It is extremely difficult to rank into the top 25% not to mention 10%. That makes it difficult to attend the college of their choice however this is not a bad thing. I am very confident that my child will be able to handle college life and the workload much better for having attended Clements. The students at this school are already required to take total responsibility for themselves and their work. The teachers do not babysit them. There are other avenues available if the student requires extra tutoring. I do not know about the huge drug problem another parent mentioned but I would say it wouldn't surprise me only because aren't most schools struggling with this? I do want it acknowledged that there are very active parent and student organizations that face this very issue and they do a great deal during the year in the way of parent forums, sponsored activites mailouts, etc. The school can't handle this alone and parents need to take an active role to curtail the problem. My son is an average student here. Would he have a higher class ranking and grades if he attended another school? Probably, however we are not looking for a 'free ride' through high school. We are preparing our son for his future and he is learning valuable work study skills. He is being challenged and is having to make adult decisions. There are many great extracurricular activities/clubs and although it is hard to participate in many given the courseload it is a wonderful way for the students to be involved in community service making for a well rounded student. Many families that can afford to send their children to private school in this area do not because Clements provides a very comparable experience/education and is recognized and respected in the community for having such high standards.

I have a special needs child (Autistic). His life has been changed as a result of attending Clements. The others commented on only high achievers attending the school to benefit. You are wrong. You first have to be the one to see your child as a success and then be there every step of the way. No school will provide everything a child needs. Any child-brilliant or not. Clements-the staff and even more remarkably, the student body, has embraced my child and helped him to shine. He has never been excluded. in fact, he is in his third year of the JV Varsity choir-him, a child who cannot speak but a few words, in a choir that is willing to risk losing competitions in order to include him. He must follow strict rules and instead of dumbing rules down, he has had to push himself to the best of his ability. And isn't that what it is all about?

Your kids must take studying very seriously if they are to make it into the top 15-25%. The teachers move quickly through the materials. Extracurricular activities have high standards but are rewarding. CHS rivals top U.S. schools academically. Our kids have high IQ's with slight learning problems, but because CHS doesn't recognize nor provide for this unique combination, they fell into the cracks, and lost their love of learning. CHS wasn t concerned about them because they were passing. Drugs are an enormous problem at CHS. CHS is an achieving school that caters to the highest achievers.

This is a fantastic school! My daughter was part of the first graduating class at Clements. The teachers are very involved in the academic and extracurricular activities. They want their students to succeed. Since opening its doors, Clements' goal is to develop well-rounded and sucessful students.

This school is a great school for students who are gifted and talented. My daughter, who I consider as an above average student struggled for average grades at this school. Her teachers were much too strict and did not show interest in her progress even in her average academic classes. Before we moved into Clements' district, my daughter was in advance classes, but after awhile she needed to change her level in many her classses to academic status. Don't get me wrong, this is a great school for highly achieved kids. Warning to parents, do not send your child to this school if they are not excessively motivated and/or high achievers.
