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.

Very community oriented, does a good job of connecting school lessons to real world applications, small classroom sizes makes it easier to have real classroom discussions about the instructional material, students are held to high expectations and in turn, are treated like young adults (given the freedom to choose where we want to eat inside or outside the school for example), we feel like the teachers really take an interest in us and get to know us, and the culture is one where students encourage each other to do their best-it’s cool to be smart.
My overall experience at Clark has been great! This school teaches using the Montessori method which involves teamwork, community, community service, and real life learning. My favorite part are intercessions. I hiked 80 miles of the Appalachian Trail one year, attended Alabama Space Camp another year, went to Andros Island another year. These and other terrific experience will be with me forever!
