Principal's letter

Dear Clark Families,

One of our Clark graduates, Django Kroner, is the star of a new show on Animal Planet! His extreme tree house building crew shows off their amazing team work, engineering, building, and creative skills in this 40-minute reality show. It’s worth a look to see how our Montessori values show up in our alumni’s lives! Check it out at

Education is a work of self-organization by which humans adapt themselves to the conditions of life.” –Maria Montessori
