History[edit]

Clifton schoolhouse[edit]

Since 1885 there have been many "Clifton Schools" that were located where the building still stands. The first building was a one-room schoolhouse where about 35 students attended until 1912 when the construction of Clifton High School was completed.

Clifton Elementary School[edit]

The new Clifton Elementary School was built in 1952. It had four class rooms, a library and an auditorium. In 1954 two more class rooms were added. The upper playground was built in 1955.

A significant addition in 1984 doubled the size of the school, adding several classrooms and a gymnasium.
