Our School

Enjoy a video about our school from past and present students and staff!

We were featured on Idaho Public Television! This video talks about our amazing CTE amenities here at Clark Fork High School, shows some projects from past/present students, and some personal interviews from the principal and instructor.

SMALL SCHOOL – BIG RESULTS!

  • We have achieved "Adequate Yearly Progress" (AYP) since the implementation of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation in 2001!

  • Our school offers students a 13:1 student to teacher ratio.

  • The graduating class of 2020 had 21 students and over half of them received scholarships!

  • Our Graduation rate is far higher than the national average!


Location

Clark Fork Junior – Senior High School is located in the town of Clark Fork at 502 North Main Street, and serves the eastern side of Bonner County, Idaho.

Teachers

Fourteen teachers serve grades 7 through 12 and a student population of approximately 100.

Small Class Sizes

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).

We Are Family

“Family” is a word most often used to describe the atmosphere at Clark Fork High School. Every staff member knows every student by name.

Array of Technology

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

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.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is to encourage emotional, intellectual, and moral qualities in every individual. We strive to promote excellence and instill the importance of academic achievement, model mutual respect between all stakeholders: community, staff, and students. Finally, we want to foster and celebrate the belief in self.
