School Reviews

  • Recommended July 01, 2007 - I think that Clarendon High School is a great school as far as academics with some of the teachers. Athletics could use a little more help and the principal need help. As a former student of the school i would say that it needs plenty of help and discipline. - Posted by Student/Alumni
