About Our School

Welcome to Clark K-8 School, home of the Cougars. We are located on the west side of Cleveland just south of I-90.

There are many great things happening at Clark School that make it a safe and quality school to attend. The school offers a range of math, computer and reading enrichment programs. The Buddy program partners a staff member with at-risk students. And technology is used skillfully at all grade levels. The school also offers bilingual services and tutoring.

At Clark School we are playing an important role in The Cleveland Plan, which is reinventing public education in our city and serving as a model of transforming public education in the state of Ohio.

Elements of The Cleveland Plan include:

• Ensure every child in Cleveland attends a high-quality school and that every neighborhood has a multitude of great schools from which families can choose.

• Become a district where district and charter schools are held to the highest standards and work in partnership to create dramatic student achievement gains for every child.

• The District will provide excellent schools in Cleveland, regardless of provider, and give these schools autonomy over staff and budgets in exchange for high accountability for performance.

• The District will create an environment that empowers and values principals and teachers as professionals and makes certain that our students are held to the highest expectations.

We also are excited that our school will be replaced with a new school as part of the District’s School Facilities Master Plan.
