Anderson W. Clark Magnet High School Reviews
This is a very good school, I recommend everyone to apply here. It isn't like every other high school, other high schools don't have to do senior projects, take physics as a freshman, and have a block schedule. Clark can get stressful but I recommend for people to go, they will challenge you and will make you do your best. They care about your future and don't make you waste your time by making you take classes that are not an a-g requirement. In here you don't have to worry about drama and fights, you come to this school to learn.
From personal experience Anderson W. Clark Magnet High is just a regular High school except it has some Macs and some Nikon D-40 cameras. Other than that, it's really the same as the two other schools in G.U.S.D. So if you don't get accepted don't sweat it, it really isn't a big deal.
