Principal’s Message
 
Welcome to Clark Fork Junior/Senior High School, home of the Wampus Cats! Located in the beautiful town of Clark Fork, Idaho (pop. 530), our school offers students a unique learning experience unmatched by any school in the district.  With an 8:1 student to teacher ratio, our kids receive the individual attention they deserve.  Our teachers and staff are among the best in the nation, providing a dynamic educational experience.  Outstanding academics are matched by our communities pride.  Our school is truly a family with a surrounding community who loves the kids as much as we do.  Whether it’s hiking trips, ski trips, or just a game of basketball after school, everyone is engaged in helping our kids feel supported, important, and loved.  Interested in playing sports?  The small school atmosphere also hosts a no-cut sports program, allowing all students who are interested to be part of the team.  Students learn valuable skills such as teamwork, responsibility, and character development without the risk of being cut.  This allows our kids to grow not only as athletes, but in the classroom as well.  We may be small, but you won’t find a bigger heart than at Clark Fork Junior/Senior High School.

Clark Fork Junior – Senior High School is located in the town of Clark Fork and serves the eastern side of Bonner County, Idaho.  14 teachers serve grades 7 through 12 and a student population of approximately 100. We feel our small class sizes give us a distinct advantage over larger schools. This belief is supported by education research. Small schools have better test scores, lower drop-out rates, and stronger, safer school communities (Nguyen, 2004). “Family” is a word most often used to describe the atmosphere at Clark Fork High School. Every staff member knows every student by name.
 

As a supplement to the course offerings taught by our onsite staff, we use technology to provide a wide range of educational opportunities for our students.  Our staff has a wide array of technologies available to them as well as two computer labs with high-speed, broadband connections to support enrollment in the Idaho Digital Learning Academy.  We also have video conferencing for distance learning through the Idaho Education Network.  Dual enrollment college credits are provided face to face by several of our teachers along with offerings from North Idaho College, the University of Idaho, the College of Southern Idaho, the College of Western Idaho and Brigham Young University.  Student tuition is subsidized through a $100,000 grant awarded by the J. A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation.
