Congratulations to the Clay High School community for, once again, being honored by Newsweek as one of America’s Top High Schools.
There were only 1,000 schools nationwide who received the honor. There are two ways to be identified on the list by Newsweek. One is to be an overall Top School. The second is to be one of the “Schools Who Beat the Odds.” There were only 43 schools in Ohio to be recognized in this category.
Newsweek’s “Beating the Odds” list seeks to identify schools that do an excellent job of preparing their students for college while also overcoming the obstacles posed by students at an economic disadvantage.
Clay High School is so very proud to be 9th on this list and 129th overall in the country. We are very proud of our students, teachers, and community for receiving this honor.
