The clutch is high huh? Too high from the floor or the range of deflection or when it starts to engage? Mine wasn't an issue at all coming from my old car. The only real issue is the engagement zone is a lot narrower, but I got used to it. Also I think you're trying to say that it's easy to stall the car in reverse? I found that true as well when I first got mine, but quickly got used to it.
So from that I'll say is just drive it a bit more and you should get used to the clutch. I would also recommend practicing on a empty parking lot if you find yourself over revving the take off. You should be able to engage the clutch below 1,500 RPM's. This will prevent excessive wear on your clutch.
