Great school environment for students to thrive, learn & develop mentoring & early leadership skills through the great inclusive culture of always improving yourself to be better. Staff & teachers are compassionate about students. Clift Nation teachers are instrumental & effective in providing students tools & knowledge for learning to reach high expectations. Campus-family environment is great & PTO is a wonderful, supportive organization.
Very diverse student population=great opportunity for students to experience wide range of cultures. Tons of great programs for students (monthly academy classes, chicken coops and garden, incentives for academics/attendance) and families alike (family nights, books fairs, award winning authors and recording artists.) Facilities are new and spacious (library, gym, common areas.) Faculty and staff truly make sincere efforts to meet student's needs on and off campus.
I have worked at Clift Elementary for 3 years now and wouldn't work anywhere else. This isn't just a "place to work", it's a FAMILY. I love seeing our students around town and hearing them say, "She goes to my school!" From administration to support staff, a culture of inclusiveness and accountability can be observed every day. Love CliftNation!
Clift is a wonderful school for any student. As a parent I worried about my child because of previous academic learning challenges. When we moved our child to Clift in 3rd grade, they quickly began to provide extra help in the areas she lacked. Our child's academics improved, which directly allowed her self esteem to also flourish. My husband and I give the teachers and support staff full credit. They provide extra time and resources for those struggling. They encourage, support and keep in communication with us as parents. It's a GREAT community where students grow in academics and character.
