The City of Clovis is family oriented, with strong emphasis on education, lifestyle, safety and cleanliness. The educational system is the best in the nation with traditionally high student achievement scores, above average parental participation, and excellent sports and music programs. Tremendous support is given to the children in every grade in school, and student progress is reviewed often. Clovis has invested in what is called an 'Educational Complex' design, which is comprised of a grade school, an intermediate school, and a high school all on the same two mile square location. The Clovis school system consists of the original Clovis High School, and the three existing complexes: Buchanan Educational Complex, Reagan Educational Complex, Clovis North Educational Complex, and there is one still in planning stages, the Academy Educational Complex. The complex configuration facilitates student transition by removing the fright of changing to a new school as they pass through the grades. The Clovis Unified School System is also responsible for building the majority of grammar, secondary, and high schools located in Fresno in the area north of Herndon from the Willow Avenue Clovis boundary line west to Van Ness Avenue. The educational facilities were built by Clovis due to the lack of funds necessary for Fresno to build their own schools, and much of the cost to the City is recovered through a per capita levy.
