Clifton is a wonderful middle school. There is something for everyone. The teachers/staff are very supportive. The library is fully stocked and the librarian is the best around. You feel welcomed the moment you step on campus.

Great school that has gone through an incredible rebirth since our oldest started there 7 years ago. The CA Distinguished School award was only the start on the path to giving our kids a great education.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
