About Clifton - Mission Statement
Located in Northwest Houston, Clifton Middle School is nestled in a small community comprised of multi-family and single-family homes surrounded by small businesses. Clifton is part of the Scarborough High School feeder pattern, which includes Benbrook, K. Smith, and Wainwright Elementary Schools. In addition, the Clifton Magnet Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Technology accepts district students from many elementary schools.
The Clifton community holds respect and safety for all people as basic tenets for all interactions among the members of the community and visitors who enter our doors. Dedicated to academic excellence, Clifton Middle School believes that all students can successfully learn. As an educational community, we are committed to striving to identify and meet the academic needs of each student as well as helping to remove barriers that interfere with academic success. Clifton Middle School is dedicated to the teaching, support, and guidance of all students through the educational process using best practices, grounded in scientifically-based research. Our goal is to prepare our students to become life-long learners in a global society.
Clifton’s vision allows for all students to see the value of education as they learn to overcome the barriers that may prevent them from achieving success.
