Athletics[edit]

The nickname of Clarenceville Middle and High School's sports teams are the Trojans.

Students of the Clarenceville School District are considered Livonia residents for the purposes of the Livonia Hockey Association whether or not they and their families live within the city limits of Livonia, MI.

Etymology[edit]

The school district's name was derived from the former town of Clarenceville, Michigan which took up some territory in Farmington Hills, Michigan. It is believed that since Clarenceville (the town) was in Oakland County, Michigan, it is one reason why Clarenceville is listed as an Oakland County school district despite having the schools in Wayne County, Michigan. Two former elementary schools, Edgewood Elementary and Westbrook Elementary, were located in Farmington Hills, Oakland County, but were closed in the 1970s. The school also owns a parking lot where it stores its buses that is in Oakland County, another reason they could possibly be listed as an Oakland County school district.
