I have two students at this school and must say it is not the greatest. I have neices and nephews in Aldine and surrounding school districts and the overall learning process and the teachers are much more qualified. This school focus is on what the student is wearing. If there is a design on the shirt

There is also a very high theft problem at this school. I have had two coat stolen in two years from my child. I drive my child to school everyday, a week ago she went into the school with a brand new coat. Midday I received a call from staff that her coat was missing. Is it staff????????????? Read less

Clark Primary is far different than it was when my first child went to this school in 2003. Back then, there were very good teachers & students were very motivated. Sadly, many good teachers left. Curriculum wise, it doesn't challenge the students enough; less or no homework is given. Communication

This school has good potential, staff & teachers are nice, however, it's in desperate need for improvements something has to be done so that future students can truly benefit & learn & just be better.

Clark Primary school is AWESOME! Their extra curricular programs are absolutely amazing. The P.E. coaches do an incredible job with the volume of K-2nd grade students that fill their gym! The music teacher is amazing and the children learn about music from all around the world. They have three music

Clark Primary has an excellent and well trained staff! I love the routines they set in place and I really like the way they teach children how to be more responsible and how they need to behave around other children. Being a Pre-K-2 school they are faced with many different challenges that other schools

While the teachers are kind at this school, the children are not challenged academically. My daughter attended this school for two years and her interest in learning dropped dramatically. I made every effort to get her tested for advanced placement or classses. However, advanced classes are not available
... Read more at this school. All children are taught on the same level regardless of learning abilities, and the children do not get homework until 2nd grade. The school only services PK-2 grade. I feel she will not be as prepared for 3rd grade as she should be, considering she is an A student. I will have to place her in an educational center to catch her up academically. This school also has no extracurricular activities, such as plays, christmas programs, or graduations. Stay involved in your childs education, if you have to send your child to this school. Read less

Clark Primary needs to re-focus on education and less on discipline. The school only educates the children minimumally. The children learn what is required but nothing more. This isn't a good school for chidren who have already experienced early education. The children are not being challenged. This
... Read more school also has a disciplinary system called a 'Responsibility Card.' This isn't a good system. The children are responsible for carrying this card around throughout the day. Any teacher can mark comments on the card and your child may be subject to disciplinary action for these markings, but because so many people have the right to mark this card, you don't know who to contact should you want to discuss the comments. Clark Primary gets a failing score. First graders don't have spelling test or regular homework assignments. Extracurricular activities are scarce and the school is surrounded by low-income housing (apartments)and gang activity. Read less
