Clark Intermediate's faculty and staff are really concerned about my student. They make sure that he feels like he can make a difference in the world and they cater to children's different learning styles.

I loved this school there was no bullying going on, my daughter was safe and this was the best school that she had ever gone to. She missed this school alot when she moved to Calvert Elementary where they bullied her for the rest of the year.

The teachers and office people are safety conscious and really care about each and every kid. My daughter went to Clark Primary and Clark Intermediate. At Clark Intermediate we had some tough times to go through. They were all very helpful and understood our situation. My daughter really loved her teachers at Clark Intermediate. Clark Primary is not as structured, has lots of new teachers each year, lacks discipline, and unorganized. The teachers are not as friendly and helpful like at Clark Intermediate.

Clark Intermediate is a great school. The teachers are wondeful with communicating with the parents. My son has excelled this year.

The quality of the program at clark was excelent. They really worked with my son in the areas he needed help. They did not have a real sports program but, they had a good music program. All the teachers and the principle were involved in the everyday activities.
