    Overall Experience: This is my son first and last year at Clarksville High. I have not experience any negativity from this school. I'm currently deployed and my children are in the care of someone else. Base off their opinion Clarksville High is rated as the Top school in that area. If you are looking for a school that is well rounded and education driven this is the school. This school has many program that help students prepare for their future. They also have a variety of clubs from academics to sports and leadership. I am happy of the choice I made in choosing this school for my sons senior year.

    Extracurriculars: My opinion is there are not many clubs offered. Sports are pretty expensive.

    Teachers: Always a few great teachers. However, overall I do not think the quality of teachers are that good. The county admin exudes an OK attitude towards education. I feel they just want kids to pass/get by and not excell. I do not feel that students are pushed to do their best. The school board would rather pass a student then let them fail (100% graduation is the theme). I do not feel that students are getting a very good education. Freshman year in college will be difficult.

    Health & Safety: Luckily we have not had any issues, besides the "normal" girl drama.

    Overall Experience: The school system is not challenging enough. Having moved from Forsyth County GA, Montgomery County is not in the same league. I wish we could have stayed in GA for the education.

    Of the schools in Montgomery County, we were advised by many parents to be in the Clarksville or Rossview district. I always wonder if we should have been in the Rossview district.

    I have not been impressed by the Montgomery County school system.
