Earning an “A” rating for the 10th year in a row, Clark earned 86% of available points, placing Clark in the top 20 out of nearly 500 high schools throughout the state. Points are earned for student achievement on the Florida Standards Assessment Tests, Learning Gains in reading and mathematics, student graduation rate, and for participation and performance in accelerated courses.

Celebrating Outstanding Accomplishments
Clark has earned continuing accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED.
SACS CASI provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance.  To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.  Accreditation is granted on a five-year term.
Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators.
Parents and interested community members can learn more about accreditation at www.advanc-ed.org.
