Two year's in a row, The Washington Post has rated Clearwater High School as the most rigorous High School in Pinellas County! We were ranked 1st in Pinellas County, 49th in the state, 235th in the nation! Way to go CHS!
For the third time, Clearwater High School is being recognized as a Model School by the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE). Hundreds of schools apply, and approximately twenty of the nation’s highest performing and rapidly improving schools are accepted as models.
