Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

Clarion has a beautiful campus and great atmosphere. If you're looking to get away and dive into academics for success , this is one school that can fullfill your goals. Overall the staff is friendly, the food is good, and the people are pretty outgoing.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2008

Overall Rating

I had very good professors who had personal and professional experience in what they were teaching. I also had a high school math teacher who worked with me constantly. I also do not believe I would have done so well if it wasn't for the Learning Center and all their help!
