At Clarkson Community High School we are committed to providing an inclusive school environment that is safe, engaging and supportive for our students. Developing student engagement, resiliency and academic inquiry is the focus of our Invitational Education philosophy and the driving influence in all areas of school improvement for 2015. Our Invitational Education philosophy ensures that People, Programs, Policies, Procedures and Places in a school are all being considered when we are developing programs for the whole child. In 2014 we developed a strong focus on data collection and analysis to ensure that our programs and procedures are value-adding for all students at Clarkson. In
2015 we will continue this successful data emphasis, but also will improve our school’s physical environment to welcome and engage our transition Year 7 and 8 students and to value-add in other areas of each child's development.

It is fundamentally important that students are invited by our school to flourish and lead happy and fulfilled lives.
