We just moved to spring and my 5 year old daughters first was horrible and frightening. They put on the wrong bus and the bus driver made her get off at a corner store with no parents In sight. She made it to an apartment complex by following other students there and was lost. A random man found her and took her to the leasing office, then they called us because all her info is on the backpack. Incompetent and irresponsible drivers and lazy staff for not checking.

I have two students at this school and must say it is not the greatest. I have neices and nephews in Aldine and surrounding school districts and the overall learning process and the teachers are much more qualified. This school focus is on what the student is wearing. If there is a design on the shirt or pants. Get a grip these are young children, if half the time was spent on focusing on quality teaching, rather than if a design is on the pant, it would be so much better. There is also a very high theft problem at this school. I have had two coat stolen in two years from my child. I drive my child to school everyday, a week ago she went into the school with a brand new coat. Midday I received a call from staff that her coat was missing. Is it staff?????????????

Clark Primary is far different than it was when my first child went to this school in 2003. Back then, there were very good teachers & students were very motivated. Sadly, many good teachers left. Curriculum wise, it doesn't challenge the students enough; less or no homework is given. Communication between school and parents have also diminished except when it comes to fundraisers. This school has good potential, staff & teachers are nice, however, it's in desperate need for improvements something has to be done so that future students can truly benefit & learn & just be better.

Clark Primary school is AWESOME! Their extra curricular programs are absolutely amazing. The P.E. coaches do an incredible job with the volume of K-2nd grade students that fill their gym! The music teacher is amazing and the children learn about music from all around the world. They have three music programs- kinder, first, second grade (christmas program). The art program is above average and studen art is displayed in the lobby. They have book fairs and field trips to the zoo. Ralph Masiello, a famous illustrator visited the school and taught the students about art. The students at Clark Primary are a diverse group and although there are some discipline issues, they do their best when they need to.

Clark Primary has an excellent and well trained staff! I love the routines they set in place and I really like the way they teach children how to be more responsible and how they need to behave around other children. Being a Pre-K-2 school they are faced with many different challenges that other schools are not. Most grade levels have 16 classes! Keep up the great work teachers you are doing a super job for the environment and situation your school is under!

I love the 2nd grade program at this school! I love that I know what is expected of my child and I love the consistency of the routines with the weekly homework to the daily responsibility card! this card allows me to know on a daily basis what my child is doing each day.... I love it!

While the teachers are kind at this school, the children are not challenged academically. My daughter attended this school for two years and her interest in learning dropped dramatically. I made every effort to get her tested for advanced placement or classses. However, advanced classes are not available at this school. All children are taught on the same level regardless of learning abilities, and the children do not get homework until 2nd grade. The school only services PK-2 grade. I feel she will not be as prepared for 3rd grade as she should be, considering she is an A student. I will have to place her in an educational center to catch her up academically. This school also has no extracurricular activities, such as plays, christmas programs, or graduations. Stay involved in your childs education, if you have to send your child to this school.

Clark Primary needs to re-focus on education and less on discipline. The school only educates the children minimumally. The children learn what is required but nothing more. This isn't a good school for chidren who have already experienced early education. The children are not being challenged. This school also has a disciplinary system called a 'Responsibility Card.' This isn't a good system. The children are responsible for carrying this card around throughout the day. Any teacher can mark comments on the card and your child may be subject to disciplinary action for these markings, but because so many people have the right to mark this card, you don't know who to contact should you want to discuss the comments. Clark Primary gets a failing score. First graders don't have spelling test or regular homework assignments. Extracurricular activities are scarce and the school is surrounded by low-income housing (apartments)and gang activity.

At a time when most parents are looking for a school without a 'reubber stamp' attitude; This school stands out with its 'all kids go forward' approach. The Principal has control and is firmly in the driver's seat, she knows all of the happenings in this school, and no child is left without attention. The staff is by far one of the best I've seen, and with 4 kids, I've seen a lot! I'm proud of my kids' school and it's wonderful staff and leadership.

The academic programs here are low. Other than are and music class, there is no other extracurricular acitivty. Parent involvement is very low at this school. The teachers and the parents do not communicate very well.

This school is by far the ultimate worst. With the new affordable community developement in the area I would expect administration to implement new programs to help instead of affect the urban students they are being overflowed with. Instead 'Responsibility Cards' are being used to promote infraction on students. While teaching a child how to be responsible is acceptable, the tatics used at Clark are by far to harsh. In addition the consequences are extreme. Parents while it is a good idea to move your children to 'nicer neighboorhoods' please research the school your child is zoned to. Administration at this school clearly needs training on how to cope with children from the inner city. Clark does not create a environment conducive to a 'urban' childs educational and 'social' growth. My suggestion for improvement for this school would be training, training, training!
