Our District

Clinton Central School District is comprised of three schools -- an elementary, middle and high school -- all located on one campus in the center of town and enrolls approximately 1,245 students.

The district has approximately 210 faculty, staff and support personnel. The teaching staff is experienced and highly qualified at all levels. Instructional leadership is provided by the principals along with curriculum councils in each building. Overall coordination is provided by a shared decision-making District Planning Team. Continuing professional education is supported by a locally funded Professional Development Center, where faculty members share their expertise and serve as instructors for in-service programs.

The Clinton CSD has a reputation for achievement and excellence, and a commitment to encouraging the development and integration of critical thinking and analytical skills at all levels. A strong child-centered focus at the elementary level establishes a sound educational foundation. In 2017, Clinton High School earned the highest national honor a public school may receive from the United States Department of Education having been named a National Blue Ribbon School.

Full programs in athletics, music, art and other co-curricular areas add breadth to the strong academic program for Clinton students. Students consistently win awards as well as local and national recognition. Musicians gain All-State status and All-Eastern honors. The annual high school musical is a major community event. Each year, the art program produces students who win statewide recognition. The community strongly supports the school and its activities. As the center of the community, the district enjoys substantial community attendance at all of its events including musicals, interscholastic sports competitions, science fairs, graduation as well as other events.

With its commitment to keeping facilities up-to-date, the district recently completed a capital project that included electronic updates to infrastructure and safety, new doors, windows, public address systems and classroom renovations. Upcoming projects will include improvements to libraries, cafeterias, the middle school roof and athletic fields.

The Clinton Central School District proudly educates and empowers all students to realize their potential in becoming thoughtful, empathetic and contributing members of a global society.

Our students are prepared for the future through engaging, meaningful and challenging learning opportunities delivered by motivated and inspired professionals, and supported through collaborative partnerships with family, our community, businesses and organizations, and institutions of higher education.
