Open Quote We love Clarke Middle School! Our kids play school sports and participate in the Clarke Scholars as well as band and the arts. The organic garden and goats are a real plus. Don't let the state standardized test scores scare you-- the kids get a great well-rounded education and the teachers really care. Plus it's an International Baccalaureate school with a focus on foreign languages. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
