I have only had few teachers at my school who I felt genuinely loved to teach. Most of them are okay at teaching a topic and definitely give effective and relevant work for their students, but I would say that the teachers are usually dull and not engaging. They grade at a consistent rate and often times grade harshly. Some don't even know enough of the material to answer questions! For example, my government teacher is always making her students cringe because of the way she lectures: going on tangents and talking about nonsense just so she can appear useful. All she does is gives us worksheets to do and videos to watch. That is not an exaggeration! Overall, teachers range from great to poor. Few of them are friendly people and most of them seem detached from the passion to teach.

Clements is very academically challenging. You will only be in the top ten percent if you are in all AP (all seven classes, not just the four core classes), get As in all your classes, and take summer school classes to get ahead. It is frustrating to know that anyone's rank would go up 100+ people if you went to any other high school in the district. With that being said, Clements does academically prepare you for the future. We generally have the highest AP and SAT/ACT scores in the district, and most graduates say that Clements is harder than college. But don't be fooled and think Clements is purely based around its academics. Although it is the main aspect, everyone at Clements is involved in at least 5 different clubs and a sport. With the exclusion of football, most of our sport teams qualify for the state level, and there are tons of clubs to join. If you feel like you can handle the rigorous course load, hours spent in clubs, and the dedication for a sport, Clements is the perfect school for you!

It is either a hit or miss with the teachers at Clements. The majority of the teachers are clearly there to get paid. I have had teachers that show up over 30 minutes late, and when they finally arrive they don't even acknowledge our presence. On the other hand, I have had some amazing teachers that genuinely love teaching. They are the ones that always offer tutoring sessions and give special help to those that are struggling. Heads up! Teachers at Clements pick favorites. Always be on the teachers good side and you will get more extra credit opportunities.
