CHS student exit exam results place second out of eight area schools

CLARKSTON, WA - Students at Clarkston High School performed above Washington state standards on their end of course exams this year.

They placed eight-percent above the state average in reading, five-percent above the state in writing, and eleven-percent above the state in reading.

To top it off the high school has close to a 91% graduation rate.

"When I look at this it's not just the school, its also the community," said CHS Principal, Eric Anderson. "We have great staff and kids here, and we also have great parental support. So, it's definitely a team effort to get to where we are right now."

More than half of seniors that graduate from CHS go on to a two or four-year college. According to the most recent college direct data, they place second out of eight schools in the area for the most students to attend college after graduation. West Valley in Spokane placed first.
