|Clarkston is a highly regarded school district with an enrollment of 8,100 students. Our 2003 Bond helped us reconfigure our grade level structure to serve students in more age-appropriate settings. We made a commitment to raise the academic bar to an even higher standard, while working to keep our youngsters from "growing up too fast." We now have seven elementary schools (K-5), one middle school serving grades 6-7, one junior high for grades 8-9, and Clarkston High School, which serves 10th-12th grade students.
Our high school facility includes state-of-the-art technology, a Performing Arts Center, Olympic-sized pool and top-notch athletic facilities. In 2006, we opened a brand new Early Childhood Center.
The school district has maintained a strong vision for the future, and even during these tough economic times, the district has continued to offer a rigorous curriculum and increase programs to better serve the community. Clarkston offers Full Day and Young Fives Kindergarten; an Advanced Studies program beginning in junior high; an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program at the high school level. Our Science, Math and Technology Academy (CSMTech) serves accepted 9th-12th grade students from around Oakland and neighboring counties, and we offer multiple Advanced Placement courses.
