Charter high school on IRSC Chastain Campus earns “A” rating nine years in a row

The Clark Advanced Learning Center, a public charter high school on the Chastain Campus of Indian River State College, earned the highest School Grade on the Treasure Coast in Florida’s Accountability Reporting System.  Earning an “A” rating for the 9th year in a row, Clark amassed 780 points out of a possible 1000 points, for the highest score in the region, 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.          

“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.     

The high-performing school has also earned national rankings as the third highest rated Florida high school on the Newsweek 2016 America’s Top High Schools rating.

Clark affords 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 or more of college completed.  Over 60% of the 2017 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.  The high-performing school is located at 2400 S.E. Salerno Road in Stuart.  For more information, call 772-419-5750 or visit

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