Clark Magnet High School students are getting ready to return to school. Teachers and administrators are having their staff meetings and getting their classrooms ready for another successful year.
Clark is a magnet school with a United Nations type of feel, where each area of Glendale and Crescenta Valley is represented. Eighth grade students who are interested in attending Clark place their name in a lottery-type system. The only criteria is that you live within the Glendale Unified School District. Students who attend come from all walks of life with one thing in common- a strong academic goal.
Although the magnet school is science based it does not lack in the arts. The school was recently recognized as one of the top 12 public high schools in Southern California in Los Angeles Magazine. The article cited its many accomplishments, including the school’s cinematography class and the fact that students presented their first film festival in June.
