    Clovis North is the epitome of factory farming meat processing approach to education a boondoggle of top heavy administration where students are a mere afterthought. There's serious miscommunication between departments and offices. You need a masters degree in engineering and an FBI wall chart of head shots to navigate the bureaucracy of administrators deputy administrators assistant administrators administrator directors their personal assistants secretaries and receptionists. There's a pervasive sense of corporate culture among the administration except without the accountability to shareholders. Meanwhile students are taught McEducation style no individual assessment or personal attention even lesson planning curriculum homework and grading is determined by administrators called learning directors. With 3 000+ students they're not preparing the ivy league bound. Students are taught in huge classes some rivaling collage size where they're drilled on unimaginative rote memorization. The test scores are a product of zoning from the area with the highest socio-economic status in the district not the quality of this industrial complex of a "school".

    Very clean campus and remarkable location.The school has many welcoming staff they always keep their heads up and greet their students. Homework is overly excessive depending on your classes. The high school history teachers are hilarious and fun the rest are so and so. Teaching methods are all planned out during meetings. Students CAN be a little stuck-up but that's basically every highschool out there.They're too strict not on dress code but mainly your attendances they WILL bug you and threaten to suspend you until your parent is able to clear them. At one point in the nurses office I needed to call to go home and rest but one of the nurses were too concerned about my grades rather than my insides being in PAIN. I had to beg them for me to call my parent because they wouldn't let me go home to rest. They get TOO involved with your personal life they'll reach out to students' entire family and friends if they can to find just one answer. It's a school that'll look nice on your records but you also face some hardships during your time there. Pros Welcoming staff "ok" education clean facility. Cons Strict on dress code/absences too concerned about grades than well being.

    Clovis Unified district policy for HS students A student who wishes to graduate early (either at mid-year or one year early) must petition for prior administrative approval. Mid-Year graduates will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony or end of the year senior activities. So if a student wants to participate in their graduation ceremony they must attend school with a min.of 4 classes but if they're ahead credits then classes must be filled w/electives that are non-required which is punishment for being ahead credits. My niece moved to Fresno & attends Clovis North HS. She was told that to fill her schedule with electives or finish early except she forfeits her right to come back to attend the year end graduation ceremony. She was made aware of this option when she asked why elective classes were being pushed on her. Ridiculous! And my niece has straight As this year! Now she has no choice but to continue going to this school and taking unneccesary classes or finish now since she completed everything and forfeit her graduation ceremony. I complained to Norm Anderson at the school district he refused to do anything about this matter that CUSD put in place.

    As parents of students who transferred from nationally "top" ranked schools in the Bay Area we have been delighted with the quality of teaching the friendliness of the kids the attractiveness of the campus and the shared positive attitude of staff faculty administration kids and parents. The chioce of electives is less broad than in our old district and I wish there were more robust studio art but the choir and drama programs are top notch! I have to disagree with the previous poster about rote learning; as a parent I have emphasized creative thinking and I have not seen my kids penalized for it. Kudos to principal Scott Dille for creating an environment that attracts fabulous teachers to an amazing team that leads to a wonderful learning environment. Dress code is clear and makes for a calmer school atmosphere - time to experiment outside of school focus on learning in school. No school is perfect and no school is a great fit for every kid but this school really seems to work hard to be an excellent school for a wide variety of kids. They have to be ready and willing to work hard and put their best effort forward and I believe they will get a lot out of it.

    Considered one of the best but probably only because they have high grades (GPA) due to their teachers programming them with constant repetition of problems or material and then testing them on that. I have had the opportunity to tutor some students from there. In math they lack creativity or the ability to comprehend how to solve a problem from any other perspective than the one shown to them. Their math teachers give them formulas and simply tell them to plug it in and repeat. In a situation where a problem in the textbook varies slightly the student is stuck with no idea how to solve it. The writing assignments are terrible. Students are given a broad topic which should be a good thing but the teacher only wants one product and anything differing from what they want is graded down. Their chemistry courses are a joke with teachers who confuse students with mind-numbing procedures that do not explain the reason why they do what they do. Conversions from moles to mass and such have no meaning just memorized processes with given formulas. Kids are set to succeed at their high school but fail in college and real life. Sad.

    After reading some of the reviews I almost feel like I am living on a different planet and we're not talking about the same school that my kids have been attending. I am amazed at the management and facilities offered by the school. I am grateful that the kids get to attend the school. Slowly and steadily they have risen from being average to being above average and star quality. Their home environment of course contributes but the school makes a significant difference. Its teamwork in my opinion. They COULD NOT have done any better anywhere else. I'm immensely thankful and grateful to the management and teaching staff of Granite Ridge and CNEC for creating this masterpiece.

    In response to the poster below Based on your spelling and grammar I'd say you are an uneducated parent.

    Awful Awful Awful can't say it enough. If you truly want your child to enjoy school don't send them to Clovis North. Bad teachers and bad staff harassing kids over trivial issues. If your child has a disability I would recommend Charter School as CN thinks their too good for children that need a little help. Uneducated staff and teachers!

    This school has a very nice campus that is easy to figure out once you know the layout. NEVER let your kid sign up for the lunch/PE combo! It was exhausting for my student who tried it and was forced to finish it out the rest of the year. You have to figure out what activity you are going to do and commit to it by around end of 7th to beginning of 8th grade be it sports band drama choir etc. because once your student commits to too much the schedules will conflict. My students are doing the aquatic program and it rocks! There are major cliques at this school but the social experiences can be huge in them creating their own world and figuring out who they are. It is what it is! There are a few wild hairs in there as far as teachers go. A few of them are a snore or wackos. Stay on top of zangle/grades! We've had some crucial errors! I took away a star because I wish there were more fine arts outlets at this school and in the district. The homework load and responsibility is an adjustment for any student that's iffy at times. Despite the adversities and obstacles my student has done well and found some nice friends.We are proud to be Broncos!

    clovis north is an excellent high school. we are in a different district and have done a out of district transfer for the last 3 yrs and its been worth it every step of the way. Clovis north has by far the best in academics sports and all around social programs most importantly its a school that cares about the the well being of the students.

  • (3 years ago)

    Almost all of the teachers are super nice and helpful but as with any school there are a few who don't care. Our principal is the best! He's really friendly and always says hi. The homework load is a little bit heavy but it pays off with all the fun events and great friends you make here. It's a very close knit school and its great to be a part of.

    Clovis North is a Average school in Clovis while it is far above Fresno Unified Schools it doesn't add up to schools around it. I have had some issues with the teachers i still believe that Clovis West and Buchanan are better choices in schools. With that said it is a clean school with good academics. I wished i could send my son to another school but this will do.

    when it comes to the academics and teachers clovis north is pretty good and also its a really nice-looking school. but overall it's pretty boring and the dress code is WAY too strict. there are a lot of really cool people there but also a lot of haters. i'm a freshman girl and i think it's pretty good!

    They have some great teachers but others leave something to be desired. Too much emphasis on winning competitions - the children are there to learn that's the most important.

    This school is a great facility however the 'greatness' stops there. I moved my child out of this school after two years and it has been amazing to see how much progress my child has made. I no longer have to 'drag' my child out of bed to go to school. The administration seems good but it seems like a lot of the teachers and some coaches were retained at last minute to fill voids. Some promising sports program(s) seem to be going the wrong direction after early success.

    dress code is too strict. I am going to move my child into a different school

    I sent my child here this year. After this year i will transfer them to either Buchanan High or Clovis West. This school is below all the rest. Excluding CEHS and CHS (Don't let me talk about them). I had to move a few times around Clovis. The students here are a nightmare. They are more stuck up then all the rest. Think twice before sending your child here!

    I attended Clovis North for a year and i can honestly say that it is the worst high school in the Clovis Unified School District. Not only do they charge way to much for supplies but the students are a nightmare. Some of the coaches and teachers are disasters.

    This school is the worst school I have ever sent my child to. The school district is wonderful but this is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to admin and teachers.

    As a grandparents of a freshman at Clovis North HS we can only go by our observations at events and the great reports from my grandson and his parents. We also are knowledgeable of the staff and teachers and their dedication to make this young new high school as exemplary as the other high schools in the District. They are well on track and the parents are supportive and give their time and talents to help CNHS grow.
