As someone who is about to start my senior year at this school, I can tell you a lot about it. I have gone to this school since my freshman year and I have loved every second.

Extremely great school, offers both IB and AP classes with excellent, dedicated teachers. The school may look old, but it is nice due to recent renovations on the whole school. Also, the school has a great atmosphere, everyone (for the most part) is extremely friendly.

I love Samuel Clemens for manay reasons. I am a Special Education teacher for special needs students. This is my second year at Clemens. I am sure that we are like many other schools, but the family atmosphere really sets us apart. Not only amongst the staff, the students can feel it too. I can't ...  Read more
