A Tradition of Excellence in Education.
The range and diversity of our student population is matched by the wide variety of programs and activities developed to meet the ever-expanding educational and enrichment requirements of our students. A safe, positive, and inclusive culture is a hallmark of our campus. We believe our positive climate is the product of working proactively together, with a focus on the development of quality human-relations skills based on mutual respect for all the cultures that are represented among our students, community, and staff.
Advanced Studies at Clovis High School is an academic pathway offered to students wishing to challenge themselves intellectually. The pathway includes honors and Advanced Placement courses, as well as advanced electives. We encourage not only our GATE students, but any student who seeks advanced learning, to enroll in these courses and maximize his/her intellectual potential while in high school.
Courses offered in the Advanced Studies pathway are designed to excite and sustain students’ passion for learning and to help students develop critical thinking and skills necessary for success in post-secondary education. We want our students prepared to pursue the various lines of study that intrigue them and to attend rigorous programs at our nation’s finest colleges and universities should they choose to go.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
