Community ratings & reviews

  • (10 months ago)

    I have worked in three different states and several school districts during my 25 year teaching career. I am now employed at Clara school. This school has the most dedicated staff and principal that I have ever worked with. State test scores are consistently high. The students who go here benefit greatly from the joint effort of school and community to teach them not only academic skills but life skills in a small school atmosphere.
