Clearfield High School is a well established school since it has been around for 50+ years. It has a very diverse course offering with everything from IB, AP, CE, regular, honors, etc. My kids enjoyed their time there as well as their friends. I know many kids (so did mine) that applied for the variance waiver so they could attend CHS. I also meet so many older adults who graduated from Clearfield 25+ years ago and most liked the school as well. There are always those exceptions of course. Keep up the good work Clearfield high school administration, faculty and Davis County. Thanks!

As my son prepares to graduate from Clearfield, I want to thank the teachers and staff who have made his experience here positive. The academic options for students at Clearfield are vast, including the IB program, AP courses, and CE classes. Socially, my son has benefited from involvement in the art and music program here. He has made many friends and felt a bond with many of his teachers.

CHS is 50 years old. Of course the school is old but they are remodeling and improving when they get the money. It is one thing I like about Davis County School District. They actually put money into their schools. They can't upgrade everything all at once but have greatly improved the important stuff first such as the auditorium, the media center, the football field and the computer labs. These are areas everyone can enjoy. Smart move DCSD. They still have a long way to go. I'd like to see them replace the old green lockers, the tables and chairs in alot of the classrooms and put those weather resistant, either tables or benches outside, so the kids can sit outside at lunch. The teachers care but can only do so much with hundreds of kids. Kids just need to get involved in something to make their time at CHS more meaningful and fullfilling during the short time they are there. I also like the fact that LGBT kids are pretty safe and accepted there. CHS is a diverse student body and faculty with good tolerance of all walks of life. Keep up the good work at CHS!

Clearfield HS is a great school with ample oportunities for students to find something they are interested in. My daughter chose this school for the IB program. I was apprehensive since it had such a low rating and seemed to have a reputation as being a "rough" school. I was sure wrong! My daughter loves this school! We moved here from Virginia a few years ago and this school is head and shoulders above what we've experienced in Virginia. The students are great. The teachers are so involved with the students and genuinely love to teach. The only negative aspects of this school are that it is old and the sports teams aren't very strong; however, my daughter loves the history and they are making efforts to upgrade whenever possible. My daughter loves the IB program as well as the teachers, even though it is tough. I am definitely happy she chose this school.

A school that offers more than texts, but an education

Yes, they do have many programs to help students with almost any difficulty. Yes they actually do want to help the students, but the reason why many activities are not participated by those who need them is because, and only because their parents either do not make them, or they do not want to participate in it, so they do not tell their parent(s)/guardian(s) anything about it. When parent teacher conferances comes the students lie to their parents at often times, and say they have not heard anything abou tit when they announce these activities several times in the first place. I've seen this several times from fellow students that I saw, and know for a fact have heard about it. Parents NEED to dig in with their children and make sure their children are participating in activities/programs when needed since many students can not do this them selves.

They really do care for the students. They have many programs to help students with almost any difficulty. In fact, many of those programs are almost never used.

There is a great lack of leadership ability and skill among the administration and staff. They don't seem to care. When it is brought to their attention, they simply shrug their shoulders and ask, 'What do you want me to do about it?' I have had two children graduate from CHS. I am so impressed with the degree of their education that I have pulled my third child out of the school after 1/2 a school year and put her in another school, one that really cares about her, one where she really matters. So if you don't care about your child's future or self esteem, CHS is for you.

Clearfield High is the best school I could imagine attending. The students and teachers there are amazing and so diverse. CHS has so many extracurricular activities for students to get involved in, and students achieve so many great things while there. As a Senior Class Officer I am extremely honored that Clearfield High is the school I get to represent.

The Drama department at Clearfield High is probably the best in the district. Davis High School's drama program is amazing as well. Also, Clearfield High's Seminary Teachers are some of the best in the world, including world-renownded Candis Harrington.

Two of the best programs with the best teachers are the drama and debate department. Lenina Wimmer and Alyn Bone are two of the best teachers I have come acrossed.
