    "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."
