    Teachers: The life of an average high school student is no doubt stressful. The many assignments that we have to complete can seem like a nuisance at times. But in all honesty, they help us in ways we can never fully appreciate. The teachers at my school teach us so much everyday. Their easy-going and passionate attitudes give students a reason to come and learn. They often have long and informative discussions with us on a wide variety of subjects. The teachers at Clements will sit down and talk about anything (as long as it doesn't impede learning the lesson of the day). They are kind and engaged in their mission to foster our education. in the end, it is what they do everyday that affects how we think and how we learn for the reset of our lives.

    Teachers: There are some teachers who do all that they can for the students benefit, but there are lots of teachers who just do the bare minimum and don't rise above and work a bit more for the students. The teachers I had at this school either cared lots about the students and helped us out when we needed and graded all our work in a timely manner, but the others I had took weeks to grade, didn't teach well in the class and always seemed distracted. Lots of the times the teachers that were distracted and slow were the ones that teach regular classes, and those that rises above were the teachers for the AP courses that were offered at my school.

    Extracurriculars: There is a variety of clubs that a student can join. Some are academic, some are volunteer-based, some are religious, basically anything. Most clubs are a relatively good size with the exception of Student Council and DECA whose memberships are exponentially larger than other clubs. These two clubs sometimes seem like cliques because of their large presence in the student body, requirements to join and remain a member, and the large amounts of activities that only involve its members. The majority of students are involved in clubs and are committed to keeping them alive and in order.

    Teachers: Most teachers do a good job of teaching their students the curriculum listed in the course description. There are some exceptional teachers who genuinely care about their students and go above and beyond the course requirements while some teachers frequently fall behind in teaching the material and seem to teach only because they're being paid.

    Overall Experience: This school is overall a nice place to learn and grow. Teachers and students are generally friendly and willing to help each other.
