Read what parents are saying about Clarksburg High School
My son is a junior and is receiving a fine education at CHS. But let's be honest, the school is irrelevant if his parents don't set high academic expectations and give him the resources/environment to achieve them.CHS has received low scores in equity categories. This is an intractable problem if the parents are not brought into the solution at least as much as the student. The home environment and example set by adults is critical. How can a student work tenaciously toward a fulfilling future when she is raised observing adults waste their time in front of a screen. Children require a home environment conducive to learning, and thus academic success. Parents must be commanded (yeah, I said it!) to1) Turn off the TV and all devices.2) Abandon all non-educational use of the internet (FB, IG, Twitter, TikTok, etc. is for losers).3) Stand ready to help with homework until it is completed. Even if you don’t know the subject matter, be resourceful and learn it with your child.4) Read books written by renowned academics on complex subjects.5) Set *extremely* high academic expectations (expect A’s, question B’s, teacher meeting for anything else)All good-intentioned efforts to help underachieving students will continue to fail if they do not equally involve their underachieving parents.P.S. If this post hurts your delicate feelings, you’re consuming it with the wrong part of your brain.

I have a 10th grader at Clarksburg. She was homeschooled until entering Clarksburg in 9th grade. We LOVE Clarksburg!! The principal who just started at Clarksburg this year is awesome. He is very involved in every aspect of the school, he communicates with parents on a regular basis via email and phone blasts. You can find him at PTSA meetings, sporting events, in the hallways, everywhere! My daughter has taken some AP classes, which are excellent. And the honors classes are good as well. My daughter has made a good group of friends and she's involved in sports and other activities. My husband and I are involved in the PTSA and we volunteer at teacher appreciation events. Clarksburg has a great community and great diversity. We love this school!
