As someone who is about to start my senior year at this school, I can tell you a lot about it. I have gone to this school since my freshman year and I have loved every second. I've made many friends from both Schertz and from other countries from going to this school. We had 4 foreign exchange students this year! That's awesome! They have so many programs and clubs to join too. I myself have been in band all three years I've been here, and the HOSA(health occupations students of America) club. We also have AP, IB, and dual credit programs. Because of this school I will be graduating with two extra credits. We also started a radiology course for seniors this year which will allow students who take the course to take the radiology test and become certified radiology techs straight out of high school. We're only the second high school to do that in the state! We may not be the best high school in the country, but I would highly recommend this school.

If you do not have high expectations for you child during their high school years, then this is the school for you! Incompetant , unorganized teachers and administration who do not care and have told the kids to teach themselves because they do not care. The teachers cuss, let them text, eat in class and basically do whatever. Thank god my child will not be in this school next year. Good riddance!

We specifically chose this school district when moving to San Antonio an could not be happier. The school offers great education programs for the kids, Culinary, FFA, Sports programs, Computer Sciences, IB and AP programs with a large percentage of students moving onto college programs after graduation. Best decision we ever made. This included, limiting our home buying to keep our kids at Clemens. My oldest graduated in 2012, my middle will graduate this year (2014) and my daughter next year (2015). All of the faculty have our children's education and safety as priority, and the communication with teachers and staff is great. I had to fight schools in the past to get help when needed for my middle child.. It was awful. You can not wrong with the Clemens SCUCISD and our sister HS, Steele.

I completely agree with the parent that said the teachers are lazy and allow the kids to do anything. My daughter says they are allowed on their phones, drink and eat in class. I saw a video one of her friends took in class and the teacher is waving at the camera as the kids do nothing. The admin are extremely rude to parents and talk down to kids and parents. My other children went to Steele and that school is a million times better and the principal is wonderful. I sure do miss that school and the strict way it is run.

Having had two daughters graduate from Clemens I am looking forward to my son starting there this year! My oldest was able to graduate early with a Texas Scholars diploma. My younger daughter graduated with college credits under the dual credit program and started college as a SOPHOMORE and all I paid was a registration fee of $15! Saved us a bundle! The jr which feeds into this school offers high school classes really giving the kids a heads up and allowing them to pursue all the programs Clemens has to offer. You child can graduate HS with certificates as a Vet tech or pharmacy tech and be eligible to take the state certification with no other school right out of high school. They have a bunch of dual credit college classes too. The extra activities abound and every Friday night in the fall the stadium is full of students and parents enjoying the team spirit! THe band program is top rated and the camaraderie is amazing! My kids are still close with dozens of their friends from school. They were well prepared for college and the military. Parents are very welcome too!

Clemens has deff, changed since the reviews in 2005, we are still overcrowded but only in the hallways. The classes are usually 25 - 32 people in them. Also dress code and tardiness offenders are given detentions or phone calls to the parents. The administrators crack down hard on rules but love their children.

This school is a great school! My kids love it here. The teachers are extremely dedicated to their students and don't mind staying after to help them. Clemens offers a wide variety of extra curricular opportunities, with many of there clubs attending state meets. The only problem here is that Clemens is by far underfunded in a lot of their items. The district seems to like giving more of the new items to Steele High School, but this doesn't detract from Clemens, it detracts from the district.

Extremely great school, offers both IB and AP classes with excellent, dedicated teachers. The school may look old, but it is nice due to recent renovations on the whole school. Also, the school has a great atmosphere, everyone (for the most part) is extremely friendly.

I love Samuel Clemens for manay reasons. I am a Special Education teacher for special needs students. This is my second year at Clemens. I am sure that we are like many other schools, but the family atmosphere really sets us apart. Not only amongst the staff, the students can feel it too. I can't say I have a 'job', but I can say I love what I do and part of that reason is my co-workers, the administration, the cafeteria workers, and the custodial department. Everyone takes good care of our needs in my classroom. And I appreciate it very much.

We chose Clemens because of the IB program, which is great. My kids are getting an excellent education. The IB teachers are very dedicated, for the most part. The reason I didn't give the school 5 stars is because of lack of parent involvement.

We love this school. This is my daughters second year attending and I am pleased with almost all her teachers. The schools drama teacher is somewhat of a hag but other than that the school is great.

Good school but don't seem to have a good handle on discipline issues.

Samuel Clemens HS is a great school and overcrowding is not an issue, due to the opening of another HS in the district. Many things have changed since 2003, when many of these reviews were initially posted. The teachers are some of the best and they truly care about their students. Athletics are over emphasized at all Texas schools with winning traditions, which Clemens normally has. Student to teacher ratio is great. Administration places a strong emphasis on discipline, but are willing to work with parents and student that are having problems. The small town atmosphere is what makes it a great place to live, actually. Are there better schools, of course, but Clemens is still exceptional, IMO!
