Clear Brook High School Named State School of Character
Posted on 02/05/2020
School of CharacterClear Brook High School was one of only 81 campuses across the country to be named a 2020 State School of Character by Character.org, a national advocate and leader for character in schools, families, sports teams and the workplace. This is the first Clear Creek ISD high school to receive this honor.

“I have always described Clear Brook as an inclusive school with a servant heart,” said Principal Michele Staley. “Our feeder schools have done an amazing job building character with our students, so it was important to continue that education with our Wolverines.”

Each year, Character.org certifies schools and districts at the state level that demonstrate a dedicated focus on character development which has a positive effect on academic achievement, student behavior and school climate. Criteria for selection are based on Character.org’s 11 Principles of Character which include providing students with opportunities for moral action, fostering shared leadership and engaging families and communities as partners in the character-building effort.

“We began our journey into intentional character education four years ago and it has been amazing to see how our students, parents and teachers have embraced this focus on our District’s core values,” said Dr. Staley. “It is truly the most important work I have done in my 21 years of public-school administration. I am thrilled that our community was recognized for the special place we all know it is.”

Clear Brook joins the growing list of Clear Creek ISD schools who have been named State Schools of Character. The school will now be considered for Character.org’s highest distinction as a 2020 National School of Character, which will be announced in May 2020.
