Welcome to Clarenceville School District


The mission of the Clarenceville School District is to create a learning environment where All Means All.

Established 1837 the Clarenceville School District of Wayne and Oakland Counties is located at the southern edge of Oakland County and includes sections of Livonia, Farmington Hills, Redford, and Southfield. It is comprised of 1,818 students in one high school, one middle school, and two elementary schools.  Our students are of a moderate to low SES.  In the 2017-18 school year, about 65% of our students were eligible for free or reduced lunch.

Our students are serviced by highly qualified certified teaching, counseling, special services, and administrative staff in full and part-time positions.  Other employees working in our school include paraeducators and support staff, including secretarial, food service, maintenance, and part-time aides.

All four of our buildings have achieved NCA/AdvancED Accreditation. In 2017, Clarenceville earned the NCA/AdvancED District Accreditation.


The vision of the Clarenceville School District is to become a learning culture where all students will be empowered to face the challenges of the 21st century.

Supported by an enthusiastic faculty, dedicated staff, committed families, and a proud community, we create a safe and caring environment that fosters deep and enduring personal relationships. We provide our students with an academic foundation designed to promote the learning necessary to be successful in a global society by including global competencies of Communication, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Character, Collaboration, Citizenship leading to an understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures and physical, social, and emotional wellness.

Within this supportive atmosphere, our students explore their talents and interests, set individual and group goals, and pursue courageous endeavors in all areas of their lives.  Cooperative relationships among families, businesses, organizations, community members, and the school provide strong ties which enhance learning beyond the walls of the school.

We value a culture of civility where all stakeholders are treated with fairness, are celebrated for their successes and are respected for their contributions.

We prepare our students to live their lives with resilience, compassion, and above all integrity. As our students move through life we know that they are prepared to act knowledgeably, lead thoughtfully, share generously, and contribute meaningfully.
