Who Should Apply?
Clark School welcomes students of all types, with varied interests, strengths, and weaknesses who are ready to capitalize on their time at Clark and build relationships, skills, and confidence. Our students are kind, caring individuals who support their fellow learners while working toward a solid understanding of their own academic and social needs. Motivated and willing to accept help from their community, Clark students depart with a strong understanding of how to advocate for themselves - a crucial 21st century skill.
Clark School is not a special education school, however it is unique in that we work we with students who have learning differences (dyslexia, high functioning autism, executive functioning, processing delay , etc…) as well as academically average students, and gifted/accelerated students or students who play sports or have careers and utilize our online platforms. We also welcome students on IEP’s and/or Neuropsych’s and 504 plans, if their individual needs fall into our range of available supports. At Clark we are an open and accepting community where students and staff have mutual respect for one another.
Clark School families primarily live on the North Shore and Merrimack Valley (Amesbury; Ipswich; Andover; Boxford; Georgetown; Groveland; Haverhill; Lawrence; Merrimack; Methuen; Newbury; Newburyport; North Andover; Rowley; Salisbury; and West Newbury). But come as far as New Hampshire and suburban Boston. We do currently have Transportation from Swampscott/beverly/Salem, North Andover/Reading and Burlington/Lynnfield/Danvers.
