Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to The Stanley Clark School! For more than six decades, SCS has provided students in our local area with an exceptional, top-notch education. Accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) we are a co-educational, independent school enrolling students from age three through 8th grade.

At Stanley Clark, our mission is “to inspire and challenge students to achieve excellence in academics, the arts, athletics, and character in a nurturing environment that fosters critical thinking, creativity, accountability to self and others, and the discovery of each student’s strengths and passions.” Students engage in a myriad of activities in the classroom, on the athletic field, in a play or performance, on our low elements course, and much more. We believe that our students’ strengths and passions should be at the forefront of our pedagogical and instructional practices. 

Our students are forward-thinking, confident, personable, well-rounded, fun-loving, and eager to learn. Stanley Clark prides itself on helping students grow academically, socially, and emotionally through an abundance of experiential, hands-on opportunities both in and out of the classroom.    

Stanley Clark is rich in history, community partnership, and family-centered traditions. We invite you to visit The Stanley Clark School and experience for yourself the countless ways that we provide an excellent education for children.
