Clark High School 2

I have had 2 children go through this school. One is a high achieving honors student who had a relatively average experience at Clark. Minor issues but nothing out of the ordinary. The other is an above average student who is interested in learning but had trouble in the highly disruptive classroom environment. Some highly engaged teachers have good control over their classroom, but many of the teachers are phoning it in. In these classes you can see on a daily basis, students who walk around the room, make phone calls, argue, fight and generally disrupt the class. It is a wonder anything can be learned at all. Plano graduates some of the smartest and highest performing students in the nation. These students are lucky to be mostly segregated from the average students who have to put up with the garbage that the administration either intentionally or negligently ignores.

Anyone who fights their way through this school has demonstrated true grit and determination. I must enter 15 words.

The opposite of respect is what is developed by this school. Absence of respect for teachers and students is the norm.

The school administration talk about integrity and honesty but rewards those who break the rules. My kids have learned as school that you can do whatever you want if you ignore what you are told by teachers. For some reason, teachers will not report violent behavior. When a student reports violent behavior, their report is subject to the review of the person they are reporting.

R. C. Clark High School is amazing; they offer a ton of different varieties of clubs, activities, and more. And what's great is their Cougar Chow; a great way to spend time during lunch for an hour with your friends outside where you can buy food from different vendors such as Taco Bueno, Mooyah, and more. The teachers and staff are very kind and helpful whenever you need something, and can be firm whenever needed in the classroom. The school itself after the remodeling looks great, as well. The cafeterias are large, the classrooms are large enough to hold around 30 people, and the school itself holds only 2 grades with an immense amount of people. The school also has more freedom than others (I would believe). Most schools would not allow for outside drinks and backpacks to be brought to class. This school by far is the greatest one I've attended.

My Brother, Sister and I are all former students. Good Teaching staff, but crowded student to teacher ratio. Worst of all, a lot of gangs and drugs are easily bought and sold before, during and after school. Just drive by after school gets out and you easily spot the gangs.

The academic program is ok. It is good. The most popular sport is football but they have basketball teams, soccer teams, baseball team, dance team available.

This is a good school if your child is in advanced academic classes or in need of special education classes. If your child is an average student, this is not the place to be. Average students tend to get lost in the shuffle here. Many of the teachers here are neat, dynamic people who enjoy teaching. Unfortunately, there are also teachers here who have been at this school for decades and are still giving the exact same quizzes and tests that they have been giving for decades - no originality, no creativity, no changing with the times.
