I attended Clarendon and graduated in 2009. I loved all my teachers and the staff, and I learned soo much in all my grades. I loved every part of this school- the curriculum, the teachers, the activities-and I would reccomend this amazing school to anyone.

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