Welcome to the R A Clement High Classes Of 1943 - 1968 web site. We are located at 216 Krider Street in Cleveland,North Carolina.. The R. A. Clement School has quite a unique history. This school started in 1880 as a one-room day school called Cleveland Colored School. In 1943 it was renamed R.A. Clement School after Mr. Rufus A. Clement who so kindly provided the land in 1878, financial aid, moral support, encouragement, and physical labor to make the school a reality. In 1968, fourteen years after the famous Brown vs. Board of Education court decision, R.A. Clement School was desegregated.
