a Great Place to Learn!
Welcome to Walt Clark Middle School. I am so honored to be the Principal of the middle school I attended as a student; it was a great school then and continues to be an amazing school today! As I walk the halls everyday I see the pride and dedication our staff has for student learning and achievement.
We begin this year with excitement around the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) focus. Students will be accessing their 21st century skills through inquiry based lessons and projects. All content areas will be collaborating on instruction and data to ensure students are gaining the skills they need to be productive citizens in our community.
Moving in the STEM direction, Walt Clark has the wonderful opportunity to build strong community connections with families and local businesses. We guarantee through collaborative relationships we will be able to provide relevant real life learning experiences for students to participate in. Also, through these partnerships, students will have access to mentors from various STEM careers which will help facilitate the school to career pathways as students explore their career interests.
Walt Clark is also proud of the growing partnership with Thompson Valley High School. Both learning communities wish to build a seven year educational journey for students that allows them to explore various career pathways with consistent academic practices and resources 6th through 12th grade.
Please explore our website for further information about our wonderful school. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at anytime. We are excited to have your student as part of our Cougar family. It is going to be a great year for all students, parents, staff, and community members.
