Clark Advanced Learning Center Earns School of Excellence Designation     

(STUART, FL) The Clark Advanced Learning Center, a charter high school serving Martin County, has again been designated a School of Excellence by the Florida Department of Education. This is the third consecutive year the school has earned this prestigious recognition from the state. To achieve this honor a school must excel on Florida’s grading system for at least two of the last three school years.

Located at the Chastain Campus of Indian River State College (IRSC) in Stuart, the Clark Advanced Learning Center is organized in partnership with the Martin County School District—an “A” rated district ranked 12th out of the 67 school districts in Florida.

“We are so proud of our students and our team of educators at the Clark for all they do to make our School of Excellence designation possible for the third year in-a-row,” shares Debra Kohuth, Executive Director and Principal, Clark Advanced Learning Center. “The partnership that IRSC and the Clark Advanced Learning Center has with our parents, the school district, and community of Martin County makes this type of achievement a reality.”

Additionally, the Clark Advanced Learning Center has received an A ranking for 11 years in a row from the Florida Department of Education, and the agency ranks the Clark among the top ten high schools in Florida.

Due to its unique location in a college setting, Clark students take full advantage of the resources of a college campus and many earn tuition-free college credits through dual enrollment at IRSC. Availing themselves of academic and technology programs that meet the requirements for a high school diploma while having opportunities to enhance studies with college classes and internships, students attend Clark free of charge for coursework and books. Graduates are ready to complete their advanced degrees at IRSC or transfer to a university.

Congratulations, To Clark on the School’s inclusion, in U.S. News & World Report 2014 edition of “America’s Best High Schools”. BRONZE
