We couldn't have been happier to have lucked out to be within walking distance to this wonderful school. We moved to Webster Groves to be able to go to a local school. Clark has so many involved parents and such a diverse group of wonderful children. Many people walk/bike to school and the after school program is top notch. After coming from a private school I was a little nervous but the past three years have just been wonderful.

We specifically chose this school district out of many many choices in the St. Louis area. We've been here now for three + years and we could not be happier with Clark. Their course work is challenging and well thought out with dedicated teachers and staff and a strong involvement from the parents in the school. WGSD also offers accelerated and gifted programs for appropriate students.

By shear luck we ended up in this school district. We feel as though we won the lottery. This is an amazing school, with amazing staff and parent involvement. Parents are involved and turn out for everything. Class sizes are fabulous! Heading into our third year we couldn't ask for a better school or education for our son. I would rival it to any area private school.

What a jewel! Clark feels like a small private school. The teachers have an obvious desire to continue learning, which translates to presenting and teaching a healthy curriculum. Strong teacher/parent relationships are resultant of accessibility and open communication. Being part of a well-formed, cohesive district has developed school/city pride, and a sense of ownership for the students. Also, strong community ties enrich the children's experiences.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
