Clearfield was once known as a peaceful farming community. Most school age children walked several miles a day to the school in Syracuse. In 1907, the new Clearfield Elementary School opened its doors. The school taught 1st through 8th grades. In 1923, a terrible fire destroyed the school. A new school was built immediately and called, Pioneer School. The Construction of Hill Air Force Base in 1940 quickly provided many jobs which brought many people to the Clearfield area. A new, very modern South Clearfield Elementary was built in 1950 to keep pace with the growing population. Our school is now 65+ years old.
South Clearfield Elementary currently serves approximately 550 students from various backgrounds. These students are taught by highly qualified, dedicated teachers that truly understand the needs of every student.
