  • I'll try to explain this in the best way I can. To understand CHS you have to understand the town itself. You will not be happy or successful in Clarksville unless you know people, because the town is run by about 10 families who have a low tolerance for outsiders, and therefore are basically bullies. The same is reflected in their school system. Children of all ages who do not belong to these choice families or are not particularly well off are made to feel very unwelcome by their peers and teachers alike. Sadly, it's just the way it has always been and will never change in clarksville.
    I attended Clarksville schools grades 3-12. My family was from out of state and rather poor. I excelled in academics, was active in most activities and sports, and still never felt accepted by anyone in the school or town. I was bullied and put down by both peers and teachers, and one coach went so far as to tell me that until I had a prominent last name I would never amount to much, "just business" he said. My sister now attends school here as well, 6 years younger than me and still is faced with the same hurdles I was. I've heard all the horror stories of the alarming rate of pregnancy and drug use in the high school, microphones in the restrooms, and seemingly unfair discipline system.
    I have now moved to fort smith and see the local schools. Much poorer, more diverse, and much larger...yet so much happier! The children here are full of life and genuinely happy to go to school. I've spoken with other CHS grads like myself since moving away and they too cannot believe they ever attended such a corrupt school district. You could not pay any of us to send our children there. Until clarksville is willing to grow and expand their horizons and teach tolerance in their schools, it will continue to be a blemish on the map.

  • Lets get down to reality and the truth of the matter shall we? Clarksville is a horrible school. The only way you would actually like it is if the teachers played favorites with you which isn't hard to see. People there are completely immature and have no scene of decorum. To my knowledge, students should enjoy going to school not hate it. Members of my family have attended Clarksville and were basically estatic to leave. Also, corporal punishment ?! REALLY?!? I mean isn't that what parents back in the 1500's did not the 20th century CHANGE YOUR WAYS. NO STUDENT WANTS TO BE HIT!!!!! I for one wouldn't stand that kind of behavior. IF you are debating to send your kids here..let me save you the time and tell you that you should save your children while you can. Bottom line. Clarksville is a horrible school and most kids shouldn't have to deal with that .

  • I am very disappointed in the reviews I have read on this page. I attended Clarksville Schools 4th-9th grades. I only moved because I had no choice! Parents jobs and so forth. I lost my father at the age of 13 and Mr. Richardson was so great, along with the rest of the staff. As far as students and drama, that happens at every school. I moved in from another town two hours away and I was successful in all sports and clubs. So your last name is not what matters, but your hard work. I very much miss Clarksville and I will be at the Lonoke football game Friday night Nov. 13 to cheer them on. Go Panthers!

  • I attend this school, and let me tell you, its terrible. We get no privacy at all, from the cameras in the hall, to that new text blocker thingamajig. Even microphones in the bathroom!? What the heck!? I absolutely hate it here, and all 4 years I've attended. Any other school has my vote over this one. It's not the teachers, but most the kids, and the punishments that are here. I mean, beating your kids if they have a cell phone out? That's just sick and wrong.

  • I used to go to this school. It's horrible. There is so much drama, teachers gossip about the students, principals as well. It's not a fair school, it depends on who you are and where you come from if you get treated how you should, gossiped about, or just ignored. I would never suggest this school for anyone.
