As a senior I feel like sometimes Clark Montessori is misrepresented. This school is a very good place to create well-rounded individuals. It is very diverse, Montessori, heavily musical and artistic. This is also a great school for athletics, we just need more kids willing to support that notion. The experience here is life changing. You will have life-long friends and allies. The environment here never forgets to treat you with care, love, and understanding. Graduating in 2020 is a weird situation with the worldwide pandemic, but the teachers don’t stop caring about the students for one second. They know how to still acknowledge us and make us feel special. My friends and I can all agree that this is a place we will think about forever and are extremely grateful for our time here.

Very good teachers, very diverse in many ways. In some eyes may not be very diverse. School is very easy to get around. Their are 2 class rooms per communities, but the classrooms are divide by a dry erase board slide wall. Very good at forming leadership. Lots of kids from west side-not many from eastside. There are some arguments that go between student and teacher, some might even say that some kids bully others quite often, some say kids act very inappropriate towards one another, definitely better than walnut hills high school. & 7th grades probably the hardest but as you go into the higher grades, kids mature and school is much more smother. When kids act up in class, they are to standout in hall, until teacher says to come in. 10/10 band, very creative.
This is the first public montessori high school in the country and does a great job at learning in collaboration with others, learning by applying principles in real world situations, and learning how to be better citizens.
The challenges with this school many times comes from trying to mesh montessori principles with requirements of the Cincinnati Public Schools district requirements and the State of Ohio's ever-changing testing "guidelines"/ mandates. It sometimes makes it difficult to have enough time for teaching concepts. The teachers, however, are incredibly dedicated and work extremely hard to teach under compressed time situations.
