    I am finsihing my senior year at Clearview and i can honestly say it was the best 4 years I've ever had. It is a very tight school where almost everyone knows everyone and everyone is cool with everyone. I have nothing bad to say about this school.

    I found Clearview High School to be the best fit for my children. I was most proud when another local school closed and the students that were displaced and came to CHS open enrolled were not shunned...they were embrassed by the children that were already Clearview Students. The friendship bonds that were created and the welcoming from the staff and students of the CHS made the difference for the kids that lost their school Lorain Catholic to closing. That is only one example; from 2003 to present there has been several changes within the school; the staff; the greatness of our sports teams; etc. All of them still are in this for the betterment of our children and I appreciate itl

    I graduated from this school and it was a very good school. They just remodeled it and it looks great practically brand new. It's teachers are very good and smart. If I had children I would definitely enroll them there even if I had to take them myself. Best school in the city of Lorain.
