  • It may not be so fun at first for the student, but in the end all of it pays off when you go to college and realize how easier some things may seem because you have been through it in this High school. For example: the year-long senior project really prepares you for the the real world (field work the long essay). It makes college essays seem like a snap. The downside to this school are the students, which are not a diverse lot, so inevitable judgment takes place more so than other schools which are bigger. Another downside is the dress code.

  • Ok no, Clark really is a great school, this is my third year there and although it may be tough I wouldn't want to go to another school. The teachers are great and make you work hard, the only bad thing about this school is that it doesn't have a lot of activities for us to do, we only have 1 dance :( *which can easily get canceled if you don't buy tickets! But overall Clark is a great school, and its better to go to a small school then a big school.
