Change in Clinton Admissions Process!

Dear Fifth Grade Families,

After a comprehensive review, the Clinton School has changed its admissions process. The school will no longer administer a school-based assessment to prospective students. In addition, it will rank more than first choice applicants.  These changes will take effect immediately for prospective 5th and 8th graders. 

The updated information on the Clinton School’s process and rubric can be found on its website at

Applying to Mark Twain
