Tom C Clark High School may seem like the average and typical San Antonio high school, but in reality it is much more than that. Every time I turn the corners of the hallways I am greeted with a smile and a "hello". There are unlimited opportunities provided by the school, and the staff, students, and surrounding community are unbelievable. In the spring of June 2019, I will feel very accomplished and ready for life outside of high school. Clark has prepared me well for college, and I am very proud to have attended a public high school with such a good reputation. Go Clark!

The years I spent in attendance at Tom C. Clark High School was fundamental to my development as a student and as a person. Not only does this particular school offer a wide range of Arts and Language courses, but it also has many extracurricular activities. These clubs allowed me to meet other students with interests similar to mine and helped me feel welcomed at school. But the best part of Clark High School is the positive and motivating staff that are devoted to helping every student succeed. The teachers and councilors are not only incredibly patient and helpful, but they make me proud to be a Clark Cougar!
My experience at Tom High has been great! All of the teachers really do care about every students success and they try to help as much as they can. Most of the teachers I've had truly dedicate their time to each individual student. The only thing I would ask the school to improve about is embracing the different cultures at school. There are students from many different cultural backgrounds and I feel that the school can do something to bring more attention to it.
