My son just graduated from the school after staying here for 6 years. Overall, this is wonderful school from academic, to environment, to activities, to teachers caring, to parent involvement, to students themselves. This school is very compatitive to private schools and other great schools in Palo Alto and Cupertino. My son likes the school so much that he doen't allow us to move out Evergreen at all, although some of his friends are in Cupertino and Palo Alto. I recommend parents being more active to the school events, more thinking, more caring, more volunteers, to build better community.
First let me say if you do not have a child that goes to this school why are you making these specific comments? It sounds like you are attacking a teacher without all the facts and then ranting about whatever comes into your mind. By the way, the teacher that you have named is one of the best, caring,creative,inspiring people I have ever met.
I would like to respond to the review by someone claiming to NOT have children at Clark, yet they seem to have teacher names and THINK they know other details such as a specific incident that might have happened at the school, API importance of the district/school, the amount of homework, and that students at Clark have "suicidal thoughts" due to the pressures put on them by the school. Really?! First, this person must be an unhappy parent that is referencing something to do with their own student, or it is some with an axe to grind for some other reason. If it is an actual parent, how dare you mention a teacher by name and not even talk to them directly, which I really doubt you did, because if you had, you would know the teacher mentioned is NOTHING like what you stated. Very cowardly of you. If your issue is with this teacher, then why are you slamming the entire school/district? The teachers at this school put no more pressure on the students than do the parents. The goal from all involved at this school is to create successful and productive citizens in the local and global communities. How DARE you speak this way of this wonderful teacher and the school/district.
I am consistently impressed by the quality of education in this school. Way much better than expected.
plenty of parent volunteers, computer equipments, extra curriculum activities, friendly teachers and principle, safe environment,
Excellent school. My son started his first grade in this school since the school started. I have 2 kids going to this school. The teachers and parents are very involved with the kids education in this school. The principal has been a great support to this school.
My kids have been in this school since the school opened. The school is good except for the secretary. I have had a very bad experience with her.
This school has the best staff and teachers possible. Everybody really cares and the teachers always help out, a lot. This place is wonderful and I would recommend it for anyone and everyone.
Best school and great teachers ...The students really get involve in the activities, especially the odessey of the mind program ....
This is a great school, my son will be in fourth grade this year, it seems every year he changes his mind about who his best teacher is, since all the teachers are doing excellant jobs, it is hard for him to decide...
I love this school. Seems a little ridiculous to rezone the boundaries and have enrollment go down forcing the transfer of some amazing teachers. Why? I ask. Seems like more sense to keep the boundaries and keep the children and keep the teachers....you already had the resources to handle it...all they are doing is moving the problems around in the meantime losing teachers that have made Carolyn Clark the school that it is.
This is a great school. This was my child's new school and I did see a lot of improvement. I like the way the school keeps parents involved. We made the right decision for my child.
Great school! Great teachers! A wonderful learning environment for all the students that attend.
An excellent school, great environment for a kid. Most teachers and the Pricncipal get my Kudos. A perfect balance and averry healthy envronment
I'm quite impressed with this school. There are so many extra activities after school for my kid to be involved in. He's a 1st grader and I've gotten him involved in chess club, piano, and run & walk club. They also have Arts Attack program for the kids. The PTA has a lot of family activities as well. Amount of h/w is ok too.
This I a CA distunguished school so my kid love it plus the the teachers don't give a lot of homework and encourage them to work hard.
I have two children (6th grader, and 2nd grader) attending this school since it opened 4 years ago. The teachers are caring and responsive. Academic program is challenging. However, the children are given too much homework everyday.
Clark has the right mix of elements to be a top rated school: experienced principal, energetic teachers, state-of-the-art facilities, hard-working kids, involved parents, and... all those high-end new homes in the neighborhood.
The quality of academic programs is excellent. Music, art and sports are also awesome. Parent involvement are also good.
Great school. Very motivated teachers. Prompt response to queries from parents. My kid has fun but also seems to be learning so much each semester.
