Clintondale Values

Dragon Pride

Chart a lifetime of intellectual curiosity and forge lifelong relationships as part of our small community at Clintondale Community Schools!


We set higher standards for students, measuring their learning goals, and then providing incentives in the form of rewarding achievement in an effort to ensure all students are getting a good education and tax dollars aren’t wasted.


Each grade level has specific standards that educators must teach. Achievement is assessed through frequent progress and comprehension checks and examinations, however, there is no consensus on how it is best evaluated.


Clintondale Schools encompasses the administrators, teachers, and staff; the students who attend our schools and their parents and families; and local residents and organizations that have a stake in our district's success.


The plan is to provide personalized resources needed for all students to reach common goals. The goals and expectations are the same for all, but the supports needed to achieve those goals depends on the students’ individual needs.


Hard Work

At Clintondale Schools, students are trying their best, giving 100% effort in every grade, on every day, in every class, and utilizing all their resources in order to achieve the goals established by the district's exceptional teachers and staff.

“The sparkle in a child's eyes when they begin to understand something we have been working on that they have had a hard time understanding. That’s what motivates me. As a staff, we never give up on helping a child understand something they need to know.”
