Clarkston Schools . . . A motivator for moving to Clarkston

When we ask families who built or bought in our community, The Manors of Deerwood, why they chose Clarkston, Michigan and The Manors, they typically respond as follows:

  • An excellent school system
  • More home for their money
  • Unique floor plans
  • A quiet country setting
  • A small town, friendly atmosphere
  • A location convenient to freeways

As everybody knows, real-estate is about Location, Location, Location.  That said, perhaps the most important aspect of location is the local school system. Many of the families that have relocated to this area from overseas assignments or out-of state locations have discovered that Clarkston, Michigan offers one of the best school systems in the area.

Clarkton’s reputation as an outstanding school district is well established. There are two national Blue Ribbon schools and six others that have earned Michigan Exemplary Blue Ribbon school status. There are seven elementary schools (K-5), one middle school serving grades 6-7, one junior high for grades 8-9 and Clarkston High School, which serves 10th-12th grade students.

The high school facility includes state-of-the-art technology, a Performing Arts Center, Olympic-sized pool and top-notch athletic facilities.

Clarkston offers free Full Day Kindergarten and a Half-Day Kindergarten option. The district now offers an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program at the high school level (READ MORE HERE). Information on the world-wide International Baccalaureate can be found HERE
