Principal's Message


Mr. Phillip Summers

Dear Tiger Parents and Students,

It is a privilege to serve Clewiston High School and the Clewiston community as the principal of CHS.  I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a longstanding history in academics, athletics and the fine arts.  The privilege of working with such a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, an outstanding student body, and a supportive network of parents and community members will only help push Clewiston High towards new heights.

Clewiston High School is home to the best Collegiate Academy and Career and Technical Educational programs in South Florida. Our students have a variety of opportunities to learn skills and earn industry certifications that lead to rewarding careers. We also have a wide variety of athletic opportunities that promotes physical fitness and competitions that instills ethics and the dignity of hard work. Additionally, we have many other clubs that promote leadership and citizenship where students make a positive difference in our schools and our community. Our focus on driving up academic achievement coupled with multiple educational opportunities will ensure our students are college and career ready!

My goals for Clewiston High School is that all scholars will graduate with a CTE certification, and/or passing score on an AP exam. We will be a high achieving school. We will provide a safe, orderly and inviting school where students can take full advantage of their capacity to learn.  We will create an educational culture where teachers grow and use their wisdom to benefit our students. We will focus on increasing student achievement and opportunities in every classroom.

I look forward to continuing the sense of family and tradition that has long been a part of the Clewiston High School experience. As Principal, I will always maintain an open door policy. Please feel free to contact me anytime at 863-983-1520. Always remember…ONCE A TIGER, ALWAYS A TIGER

Phillip Summers

Principal, Clewiston High School
