I'm a student at the Clark Avenue Middle School. I'm currently in 7th grade as of 2012. [From a student's perspective] I've been in this school for over two years and I've never seen any crime or any violence go on during school hours. Overall, this is a great school, but it's lacking in many factors: School lunches/cafeteria: There are no trays to carry your food in. We have to use our hands to carry our milk, lunch and fruits. We used to have trays, but I guess due to budget cuts we can't have them anymore. I hate carrying my food; I can't get my ID and lunch money out in time. The lunch ladies can be rude sometimes, I've been yelled at for not getting my money out fast enough. They're always yelling for no reason. I know it's loud in the cafeteria, but it gets annoying sometimes. Teachers/staff members: I have to admit, the teachers try very hard to teach at this school. I think it's the behavioral problems of some kids that hold back the education of the other students. [That's the case for me] Honestly, I've never met a teacher at this school who didn't care about their student's education. I gave this school 3 out of 5 stars from my experience as a student.

I am a parent of a student at the Clark Avenue School. First off I would like to say that the school itself is satisfactory but as far as helping children with special ed needs I believe the school is lacking. They need to take a more active role in ensuring their students are receiving a better education.

I love being in this school. The teachers are caring and awesome. I'm currently in 7th grade and for music we're learning piano. I want to learn how to play guitar. My teacher is a guitarist. What are the chances of that. So he gives me guitar lessons b4 school. But anyways my point is is that its a wonderful school. And it should have gotten a higher rating. I'm a Guy by the way not a girl. Haha
