Clark High School definitely helped me get to where I am today. I was definitely not the best at focusing on my school work going into high school. Then my family moved and everything changed. Teachers made me feel like I belonged here, friends were definitely better. Most importantly the work ethic for all of NISD school district was amazing and has helped me tremendously!

I loved my overall experience at Tom C. Clark High School. I believe that what made my experience so amazing was the teachers that constantly offered advice, not only in their department but in general advice over scholarships, budgeting skills and how to work smarter in the real worlds!
The majority of the teachers are cool and are actually invested in the success of their students but later into high school there's a lot less help for AP students trying to do things like apply for scholarships and most is directed to regs students. Their diversity sucks for the most part with minutely small populations o anything other than hispanic or white and doesn't have a single black teacher or coach. A lot of their funding goes to sports while bathrooms and classrooms are for the most part struggling it took a lot to even convince them to put a water bottle filler on the first floor. Their student organizations are really good and do most of the heavy lifting in making the school more hospitable and nice like their NHS, student council, and environmental club.
