They're all here for different reasons. Some made a concerted choice to follow a different path. Some had dreams of what life could be, and traditional school got in the way. Still others needed a second chance, or an opportunity to move at their own pace. For most Renaissance High School students, a combination of these things is true. Our students are driving an educational revolution. They learn at the time, place, path, and pace that enable them to be successful. They've discovered their potential and built their dreams. Now they've also found the way to get there. There is an alternative.
As CCS continues to look to the future of educating our community's children, it's important to understand and plan for how our facilities and sites will continue to provide for the future. Please take a few moments to complete the following survey.

Here at Clarkston Community Schools, nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of our students and staff. Safety is not something new for us; it has been a work in progress for years. Even with everything we’ve done and all that’s in place, I will be the first to acknowledge that I want to see more.
Each building has its own community, and within that, each classroom is a micro-community or family built on trust and care.Just like a family, our classrooms are comprised of many different personalities and different ways of coping. That is why coming together is the first step in our healing process.
The strong partnership we have with our families and staff is the glue that holds this district together, and your trust is something I don’t take for granted. Direct, transparent, and frequent communication has always been our priority and I will continue to keep you informed as we make every effort to keep our schools safe.
As we navigate through this year, we will continue to support our students academically while also focusing on their social-emotional well-being. We believe that students are more likely to succeed when they feel safe, accepted, and included.
Every decision we make in Clarkston Community Schools is designed to support student achievement. I am happy to report that we are already seeing progress in closing the achievement gaps and tackling the learning loss due to COVID.
