You get what you put into the school. Both of my children graduated from Clarke and both went on to complete 4-year degrees, one in state at ISU and the other in Virginia at a private college. One of my students was dyslexic and the district worked to assist the student with their learning goals. Both of my children had enriching experiences and were active in the music and athletic programs. Is the district perfect? No. But the teachers genuinely care. If there are concerns, the staff is ready to work with you to come to a compromise. Active parenting and good communication with the school staff is needed at any school.
