CLARK ADVANCED LEARNING CENTER RANKED TOP HIGH SCHOOL ON TREASURE COAST
The Clark Advanced Learning Center, a public charter high school on the Chastain Campus of Indian River State College, earned the highest score on the Treasure Coast in Florida’s high school ranking. Earning an “A” rating for the 8th year a row, Clark amassed 455 points out of a possible 500 points, for the highest score in the region, placing in the top 20 out of over nearly 500 high schools throughout the state. Points are earned for student achievement on the Florida State Assessment Test (FSA), student graduation rate, participation and performance in accelerated curriculum, and college readiness.
“I know this accomplishment is the result of the persistent hard work and commitment to excellence of our teachers and students,” said Debra Kohuth, Clark Executive Director.
Now accepting applications to March 31, the Clark affords Martin County students with the opportunity to earn high school and college credits tuition free through dual enrollment with the convenience and resources of a college campus. As a result, students typically graduate with their high school diploma and a year of more of college completed. Over 65% of the 2015 senior class graduated from Clark with an Associate Degree awarded by Indian River State College, enabling them to continue their studies as juniors at the college level.
Clark students also engage in internships related to their interests and utilize technology in project-based learning, with a personal laptop computer assigned to each student while in attendance at the school. The Clark serves about 250 high school sophomores, juniors and seniors and is now accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year at www.clarkadvancedlearningcenter.org. The high-performing school is located at 2400 S.E. Salerno Road in Stuart. For more information, call 772-419-5750.
