    As a volunteer at the school I know the staff very well and they really work to improve the students' education. Every time I have spoken with the secretary or treasurer they have been very kind. Both the principal and assistant principal are great too. There is a huge lack of parental interest within the school. The parents of students all believe that their children are perfect - however there is a HUGE issue when it comes to the behavior of the students. Parents often try to blame the teachers when really it is a lack of care and discipline at home. It makes me sad when I see the parents yelling at teachers when really the teachers are just trying to do their job. If the parents would take an active interest in their children's education there might not be so many issues. In general the school is good and are trying to do their best given the circumstances.

    This school id in a great school district with a proud tradition however this school does not stand up to the townships standards or reputation. The new car ridier is system is an absoloute abomination. I dont think this adminstistion is up to the quality of the township. Most imprtantly the front office secratery is judgemental and if you are not one of the "in parents" good luck getting anything done let alone a respetful response. I have had the oppurtunity to meet great teachers. 'the staff aregreat and are working had to work with the subpar administration they have to deal with. I hope for the future this scholl can get better leadership. Best regards concerned parent

    The principal there is amazing however... The first week of school as I was walking my child to class I heard two teachers having a (very loud) conversation in the hall. The teacher told the other "I told him to stop queationing me and to do the assignment on the board. She had to have been a 3rd grade teacher at the most. Really is this the way we treat the students? By telling them to stop asking questions? That's one of the ways children learn is by asking questions. I truly feel sorry for the other parents of "car riders". There is very little organization. They sent a flyer home specifically stating to "please stay in your car. A staff member will assist your child and it helps move things along" In the three weeks school has been in session this has happened three times at most. They let out about 8 children from the front door with zero supervision including a special needs child who could have been hit by a bus. If it wasn't for the gentleman in charge of calling the children out tragedy could have happened. All the while the teachers assigned to assist the childrenfrom the school door to the cars stood on the side of the building. NEGLIGENCE at its finest.

    My youngest child attends Clinton Young Elementary School. In comparison to where my older children attended school Clinton Young is 100 times better. Within the Metropolitan School District of Perry Township we have school choice. Around the start of February parents can fill out school choice applications. In this school district I get to chose where my child attends school. I chose Clinton Young Elementary School because it meets the standards of what I look for in a school. At Clinton Young the teacher to student ratio is the best that I have found. At Clinton Young the teacher to student ratio has been 1 teacher for 24 students. In past school years at Clinton Young the teacher to student ratio has been 1 teacher for 17 students for my youngest child's grade.

    This school is not a very good school... We have only been at this school for 6 months and my son will not return next school year.... There is so much bullying going on in this school and the administration does absolutely NOTHING... My son has been physically mistreated and this school did nothing to protect him... Every complaint I made they never check into it... If you have a choice DO NOT send your child here...

    My son attends this school. There are a lot of children fighting in this school. They have consistently had failing test scores. The administration & Teachers seem like a human resource persons nightmare with only a small percentage of them keeping parents informed doing what they say they will and being proactive. If my son was not bonded with many friends and this being his last year I would put him in another school.

    I really like this school. Even after finding out that the school didn't make the quote the school was/is willing to give my children the opportunity to further their education & offer the summer school program when most schools don't. I am very greatful for that! Keep up the good work Clinton Young!

    I consider Clinton young a really good school. Compared to Chicago there is no comparison. I daughter was in kindergarten last year and her teachers were very very good. Good job Mrs. Wiley. I went to the school on several occasions and couldn't be happier on the way they treat the children. I am looking forward to the upcoming school year when my daughter enters first grade.

    I just love the new secretary at Clinton Young Mrs. Clark has always been friendly helpful and extremely professional whenever I have visited the school. I appreciate it when I am treated like a person of value and not a bother. Overall I think the school is a good one and I feel that my child is getting the benefit of a good education.

    A+ for Clinton Young and A+ for the wonderful staff. This school is close to my heart as they helped my grandson when he was acting out during schoolhours because of Hyper-Attention-Deficeit-Syndrome. Thank You Clinton Young Mrs Spangler Mr Tapak and all the wonderful teachers Caleb came in contact and leanrned from this past year. They truly are a family and they treat each and every child like a beloved family member.
