Very poor teaching at the middle school level. Teachers unqualified teaching classes with no training in that area. Worse at the high school level (for the most part). Great teaching at the elementary level. Administrators with spouses on the school board - can you say conflict of interest? Superintendent ...  Read more

Clearfield isn't as bad as it is put out to be. Some of the teaching is horrendous and yes it is true that sports are definately a number one priority, but compared to inter-city schools and even smaller schools in the area. Glendale is a school well known for drug rings and they are busted in school. ...  Read more

Clearfield High School ranks as one of the worst high schools in Pennsylvania. Test scores are an embarrassment, the school board has failed to maintain the building, and graduating seniors are not prepared for academic success at graduating. Too little emphasis on student learning. Start over!

I think this school is a joke and by far the worst my child has attended after moving! It depends on who you are and what sport you do on the way you are treated there!You can change your hair color or dress anyway you want as long as your parent works there or you are in a sport etc! What a shame!

This school is more interested in the sports programs, there are too many teachers that are also coaches. They are consumed with their coaching duties not their teaching duties.

A mediocre school that thinks it is better than it is just because the other schools nearby are even worse.

Over the years this high school has really gone down hill. You have a Vice Principal who is also the head football coach which is clearly a conflict of interest, there are a variety of sports to participate in but the football program seems to get all the glory and exposure. I graduated from this school ...  Read more

I think the dress code is a joke. Another thing is there are to many sudents in one class and they need more one on one. I am not happy with Clearfield H.S.
