The teachers very rarely listen to the students and any student that voices they have a learning disability or even just saying they don't understand a subject is not given the attention they need in order to learn and understand the subject matter. I wish the student to teacher ratio was better and that the teachers would actually reach out to make sure their students understand the work or work with them one on if needed to make sure the student has a higher chance at actually graduating. The number one reason kids drop out is because they didn't understand a subject and found that dropping out was easier then being made to feel stupid.
I miss Clark. It has now been torn down, and is in the process of being rebuilt. Students who attended there have been fanned out to 4 different middle schools in the district-Begich, Romig, Central, and Wendler. My son was assigned to Wendler. It is soooo different from Clark. Clark at a certain feeling when you walked thru those front doors. You knew that the staff was there for you, and that your needs were important to them. Ms. Williams, the principal was/is the best principal I have ever worked with as a parent(and I have 5 boys). She is sincere, honest, and realisitc all at the same time. She truly cares about your child! I wish my son could have gone to Clark for one more year for is 8th grade year. But it wasn't to be, the school really did need to be rebuilt.
