Clark Magnet High School
Clark Magnet High School faculty, staff, and administration are committed to establishing a positive educational atmosphere in the classroom, on campus, and at school sponsored events. While recognizing the prime responsibility for good grooming is that of the student and parent, the school nevertheless shares in this obligation since it believes that good grooming signifies the difference in character and motivation that should distinguish the Clark Magnet student from students attending other schools. Since Clark Magnet students will be coming from all geographic areas of Glendale Unified School District, we want to emphasize that school is the student’s place of work and that respect for other members of society and oneself places some restrictions on the nature of our dress and grooming. We want our student’s dress to reflect the professional character of our school.
