Built in 1962, Clarkdale was originally located on a neighborhood street in Austell, Georgia. The school sat on 10 acres and was bordered by
wetlands. On September 21, 2009 the school was destroyed because of flooding. The school was filled with 10 feet of water and the building
was deemed unusable.
The 2012-13 school year was the first year of the newly constructed Clarkdale. The school is located adjacent to Cooper Middle School. Although
the flood was tragic, we now have a beautiful building in which we can serve our students.
The instructional program includes pre-kindergarten through fifth grades. The instructional day begins at 7:50 AM and ends at 2:16PM. Both breakfast and
lunch program 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
Extra curricular activities include band (4th and 5th grade students) chorus (4th and 5th grade students), After-School Tutoring
for 3rd and 5th grade qualifying students and F.A.M.E. (Family Achievement Makes Excellence) for ESOL parents. We have also
performed a school play during the 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years.
