Superintendent's Letter

Welcome to Clinton Community Schools,

The Clinton Community School District is located in the historic Village of Clinton in beautiful Northern Lenawee County, the “gateway” to the Irish Hills. Our district is proud of our quality schools and commitment to rigorous academic programming. The Clinton Community Schools staff take great pride in providing a caring and nurturing learning environment where all students can be successful. The three “Rs” of rigor, relevance, and relationship are stressed at each level as well as a whole child approach where all persons are important and have value.

At Clinton Community Schools we endeavor to offer a high quality, seamless, pre-Kindergarten through grade twelve education to all of our students in a safe and healthy environment. We strive to educate every person to be explorers and life-long learners and wish to inspire endless possibilities for all of our students and families.  

We currently offer thirteen AP Courses, a one to one technology initiative, strong award-winning athletic and extracurricular programming with no pay to play. We provide quality supports and interventions and enrichment opportunities for our students at the elementary and secondary level. Our Elementary, Middle, and High School offer STEM curriculum through Project Lead The Way (PLTW) classes, as well as the virtual classroom to offer cutting-edge opportunities for students. 

Our Preschool program was recently awarded FIVE STAR status, and our latch key provides students with a solid start to their education and provides parents with afterschool care. We at the Clinton Community Schools pride ourselves on our strong commitment to teamwork and tradition as well as providing a quality education that stresses small town values and endless possibilities for our students. If you are looking for a school of choice opportunity,  I strongly recommend you take the time to consider Clinton Community Schools and all that we have to offer you and your family.

On behalf of the Clinton Community Schools and the Clinton Board of Education, I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to you and your family to our professional learning community where every person matters.
