Decision Day! Decision Day! Decision Day!
Do you have a post secondary mind set?
Which way are you going?
The decision on where to go, and what o do can be extremely difficult in an ever changing world! Our seniors will soon be departing, and we want to take a moment and celebrate their future! For the rest of our students, let's take a moment and think about that next step!
Decision day will be on Monday, May 16, 2016! Our students can wear a t-shirt that represents a college, university, technical school or an active military branch!
The shirt must be the appropriate length with a sleeve (shoulders, stomachs, backs and midriff need to be covered). Please wear them as intended and not tied up, torn, or altered in any way. Mesh and sheer fabric are also not acceptable.
Make a decision!
Seniors don't forget we have a senior assembly second period. The group of seniors with the largest represented university, college, technical school or active military branch will get free donuts!
ONGRATULATIONS CLEARWATER HIGH SCHOOL RANKED #1!
The Washington Post recently ranked the most challenging (rigorous) high schools in the nation for their offerings of rigorous course work. As of April 22, 2016, Clearwater High School was ranked 385, which is first out of all the public high schools in Pinellas County!
Clearwater is also in the top 23% of the state of Florida (84 out of 370), and in the top 17% of the nation (385 out of 2300)!
Note: The rankings may change as more schools throughout the nation are added However, the first place designation will not change due to the fact that all of the public high schools in Pinellas have already been ranked!

CONGRATULATIONS CLEARWATER HIGH SCHOOL!
For the second year in a row, Clearwater High School has been recognized as a Model School by The International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE). Hundreds of schools apply, and only approximately twenty-five of the nation’s highest performing and rapidly improving schools are accepted as models.
As a result of this recognition, Clearwater High School had the opportunity to present several sessions on their school in June at the Model Schools Conference in Atlanta, Georgia!
Clearwater High School is the first and only school in the Tampa Bay Area to receive this distinction! Clearwater High School is being recognized for the way we continue to raise rigor and relevance for our students by utilizing a personalized learning approach within a Wall-to-Wall Academy Model with industry certifications options for our students. Their program truly prepares our students to be college and career ready!
