About Clarkdale

Built in 1962, Clarkdale was originally the central point of a small neighborhood in Austell, GA. On September 21, 2009, the school was destroyed because of flooding. As a result, Clarkdale Elementary opened its new doors in 2012. We are now adjacent to Cooper Middle School!

Our instructional program includes pre-kindergarten through fifth grades. We have a  S.E.A.M.L.E.S.S. Instructional Framework that emphasizes rigor, relevance, real-life application and relationships. We believe all students can learn and we expect excellence at all times. Our instructional day begins at 7:50 AM and ends at 2:15 PM. Both breakfast and lunch programs are available to students. An After School Program is offered daily from 2:30-6:00 PM at a cost of $7.00 per day, with a one-time $10.00 registration fee.

We have a host of activities in which students may participate. For example, S.T.E.M., Art Club, Soccer Workshop, Dale Dance Team and Mad About Science. Also, students may join the Clarkdale Reading Bowl and compete yearly at the Cobb County Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. Clarkdale has partnered with Cooper Middle school to provide math extension for selected 5th grade students as well as a science partnership for all 5th grade students. In addition, students participate in band (4th and 5th grade students) and chorus (4th and 5th grade students). We also offer before-school, after-school and Saturday tutoring.


Parents are an essential part of our success. Our parent facilitator works to increase and improve our parental involvement and engagement. We offer a variety of activities and workshops to help parents help their children at home. For example, Pastries for Parents, MatH (Math at Home), Curriculum Technology night and much, much more!
