Message From the Principal

  • Dear Falcon Families,

    Welcome to Fort Clarke Middle School!  

    The faculty and staff are eager to partner with you to ensure your child has a wonderful school year.   Built in 1973, Fort Clarke has a rich tradition as one of the best middle schools in  Alachua County.  

    Fort Clarke offers a variety of academic programs to prepare your child for any path they choose.  Our traditional and gifted classes provide a diverse mix of academic environments.  The REACH program consistently produces top graduates in all local high schools.  We also offer various athletic and club programs to provide your child with opportunities outside of the classroom.

    I hope you will consider joining our efforts at Fort Clarke by volunteering or joining the PTA.  Your support will assist us towards our goal of becoming an "A" school.


    Go Falcons!

    Jared Taber
