Too much focus on electives, not enough focus on academics. Majority of students (and many teachers as well) see the electives as free time. This school needs to get its priorities straight and make sure these "electives" have educational value. Also, communication is terrible - between administration and faculty, especially.
I am very pleased with the fact that my son is allowed to choose electives. As a whole Clarkton is OK, nothing spectacular. The Administration needs work in order to become more parent friendly. If parents dont feel welcome they will not interact with the teachers. The Ms Mena is not very helpful to parents as a whole and there is a great lack of communication between teachers and parents.
