Jonas Clarke Middle School Reviews

The staff responsiveness (teachers, administration, counselors, etc) was amazing throughout middle school. They have a wonderful way of encouraging independence & self-advocacy in students & we saw our student grow tremendously in this respect. The teachers make themselves accessible. The school counselor was phenomenal, both caring & proactive. The hard part was social, the students tend to segregate themselves over time, mostly racially.
It's also challenging for anyone with cultural differences and for the socially awkward. More student & parent programs encouraging speaking out against bullying may help prevent some of the bullying and cliques inherent in middle school. More educational programs about diversity and acceptance may help too, given the relative lack of diversity in the student population. The social environment can be challenging, but the school itself otherwise rocks.

I transferred to Clarke in January, and the teachers and classmates made me feel very welcome. However, though, I felt very different as I'm Asian, which stood out a tiny bit to the others. If you transferred to this school later than September, you don't get the chance to join any clubs. Some people weren't very welcoming and were racist towards me. I had an ok time at Clarke, but I wouldn't recommend this school to people who want to feel at home and safe.
Yes this is not the most diverse school in the world, but the education is superb! Anytime you need help the teachers will always clear the time for you for extra help. There always trying to push Lunch in a healthier way and it's not the best but it's better than a later of other schools, and the prices are little pricy. The Teachers at the school are well trained from good colleges, but some of the teachers can be a little racist and strict, and there are amazing & nice and that everybody liked if they had them. Overall this school is pretty good.
