JONAS CLARKE MIDDLE SCHOOL

Lexington has two Middle Schools for grades 6-8.

Jonas Clarke was awarded a National Blue Ribbon Award for “Exemplary High Performing” category  http://lexington.patch.com/groups/schools/p/lexington-school-named-national-blue-ribbon-school and only two Massachusetts schools received the award (including Winchester High School) in 2013.  But Clarke is right at home in the award-winning category.  It generally lands among the top three middle schools in the state in terms of MCAS score.  Principal Anna Monaco runs the school with an enthusiastic, loving and intelligent hand.   Clarke also boasts one of the nation’s top math teams.  Their team earned a place in the Top 5 team in many of the past ten years.  I have seen families move into Lexington for Clarke’s Math program.

Students are assigned to a close Team, which shares core classes together. This is one of the reasons why this large school feels small.  From Group activities to school wide fun, such as ski trips and dances to 8th Grade trips to Broadway shows, Quebec and Mexico.
