Congratulations CHS Tornadoes!
Clearwater High School received a “B” designation from the State of Florida!
It takes an entire village, (faculty, support staff, students, district support, parents and community members) to make this happen!
The Class of 2019 received a 95% Graduation rate, with 88% of the class receiving at least one college credit!
For three years in a row, The Washington Post has ranked Clearwater High School as the most rigorous high school in all of Pinellas County! We were 29th in the entire state of Florida (out of 482 schools) for the highest percentage of our Seniors graduating with at least one college credit! Way to go CHS!
Three times, Clearwater High School has been recognized as a Model School by the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE). We were recognized for continuing to raise rigor and relevance for our students through a personalized relationship building learning approach within a Wall-to-Wall Academy Model. The availability of industry certifications and internship opportunities truly prepares our students to be college and career ready.
The Career Academy for International Culture and Commerce (CAICC) has been designated a MODEL Academy by the National Career Academy Coalition (NCAC)! Our school was honored at the NCAC National Conference! NCAC indicated that it is quite evident that the passion of the school team (teachers and staff), coupled with the support of the administration, and the intense focus of our business community, has created a sustaining program for students, parents and the community! The rigor of the curriculum and the depth of our industry partnerships are to be commended!
Clearwater High School believes in the philosophy of continual improvement. Over the last few years, we have made numerous enhancements to our curriculum and facility. Our advanced placement, dual enrollment, and honors programs continue to grow and excel. Dual enrolment opportunites are available to our student through Saint Petersburg College and Embry-Riddle Aeronautial University. The Advanced International Certificate of Education program (AICE) is an innovative and accelerated method of academic study offered solely through the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), a division of the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England. Please see your counselor if interested in this wonderful program.
As we all know, students are more engaged with technology than ever before! Thus, we have been compelled to utilize the concept of “Bring Your Own Technology” (BYOT). As a result, students are allowed to appropriately use their own technology on our campus, and we encourage it! Students are allowed to engage their own devices for researching the internet, gaining access to digital materials and content, review grades and attendance, and much more! If your child does not own their own technology, or if you prefer, they may check out a electronic reader from our school. As we progress, technology will continue to become a more integral part of our school curriculum. Rules and policies for appropriate technology use while on our campus, and how to obtain an e-reads will be given out during your child's homeroom. Homeroom lists will be posted soon!
To ensure and improve student performance, Clearwater High School implemented a sweeping change from traditional school enrollment to Wall-to-Wall Academies with industry certification options, truly preparing our students to be college and career ready!
These academies function as Small Leaning Communities and are centered on key interest areas of our Clearwater High students. This “academy environment” offers each student more personalized attention, recognition and care from teachers, staff, and peers. Integral to this “Academy Methodology” is the interest and career-themed approach designed to engage all students with learning that is rigorous and relevant!
