Great school. Earning college credits in a high school is awesome. Never liked school until I came here. This school opens up your mind into life!

This is my second year at Clark Advanced Learning Center and I have never loved school until I started attending this school! I've made tons of new friends, I'm excited to go to school every day, and my teachers and the rest of the staff are so cheerful and great to be around!!! I am SO proud to say that I go to this school and I will never forget my experiences here!!!

I absolutely love this school! I am currently a sophmore and i could not be happier with it. I hated MCHS and as soon as the year started up here at clark I knew it was the right place for me. I have made a bunch of new friends, my teachers are nice, and I also get a head start on college for FREE! I cannot wait to finish up my highschool years at this school and go through each year knowing that the faculty, staff, and all of my new friends are right beside me the entire way. I would reccomend this school for every student that feels like they do not fit in at their current school, does not like their school, or would like to benefit themselves and get a headstart on college. I love going here and I could not imagine life any differently than going here.

CALC is the best choice for HS in Martin County. My child loves attending there, made wonderful friends and continues to enjoy going to school everyday. I can't think of too many parents and kids agreeing on loving a school. It's a safe environment, the administration works well with the parents and students and everyone gets to know everyone. My child will receive her HS dipolma along with her AA degree at the same time. The county pays for it all. The teachers love what they do as well. Small school, excellent learning environment...overall best choice school in the county. This is coming from a teacher in the county as well and NO...I don't teach at Clark, but I wish I did.

The teacher all really dedicated to their work and really love teaching most of them second as college teachers at IRSC's main campus in fort pierce. So they all know what we need to be ready for when we eneter college.

Need to clear something up, this is not a private school! Many people assume it is, all that is required to attend is a 2.0 GPA and passing the entry tests. There is no extra payment required to attend aside from the single $60 insurance payment on the laptop which is optional, but recommended. I currently attend the CALC and it is a revolutionary school. There is no way to sum it up in 150 words. It is a technology-based school and all students are given a laptop on loan to aid in work and most of the classes available count for college credit. The teachers and staff are great. There are 2 counselors for 180 students as opposed to the usual 5-6 counselors for 2,000 students. The CALC also has some of the highest yield of dollars per student in scholarships. Unfortunately there are no sports teams though.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
