Clinton Elementary School is the largest of the three Clinton City Schools. Approximately 550 students attend Clinton Elementary School, ranging from Kindergarten to sixth grade. There are twenty-seven different homeroom classes at CES: 4 kindergarten classes, 4 first grade classes, 4 second grade classes, 4 third grade classes, 4 fourth grade classes, 4 fifth grade classes, and 4 sixth grade classes.  Students in grades fourth through sixth attend departmentalized classes allowing for specialization in curriculum content and tailored instruction to meet academic needs.


The students at Clinton Elementary School participate in a wide variety of programs and activities. We also have a running club for grades 1-6 and a Student Leadership Team. Our School Leadership Team is composed of students in fifth and sixth grade that have received teacher recommendation for exemplary character and work ethic. These students are involved in numerous events including recycling efforts, community service programs, and all school special events such as Thanksgiving Dinner, Grandparents' Day, Field Day, and the end of the year celebration. Our students participate in the Open Library, STEM After School Clubs, Jump Rope for Heart, and 4-H. All of the students participate in the Junior Achievement Program that involves students learning about the business world ranging from topics such as their community to the global economy.  We also have a variety of Blaze Sports Clubs available for students.
CES students enjoy the frequent use of technology in their daily learning. All of the homeroom classes have interactive Smartboards. All students have one to one chromebooks. All Clinton City Schools have wireless internet, so the students have the internet at their fingertips. We have three 3-D printers that the students can use. Additionally, we offer art, music, technology, pe, library and guidance classes to each student.

Our monthly assembly is another special event at Clinton Elementary. During the assembly, student birthdays, special accomplishments, reading achievements are announced, and student of the month/ teacher of the month are awarded. We have class vs. class contests and often have special visitors.  The monthly assembly is a special ritual at Clinton Elementary School as we celebrate success at being the best! We work hard at CES, but we also reward the students for their hard work and effort!

We have placed a big emphasis on student attendance. We encourage each student to be here everyday, be here on time, and stay the entire day.  Instruction time will begin at 7:45. Honoring instructional time is critical to student success. We ask that you please try to make appointments after school when possible!
