The Heart of Fulton County Schools

Our First Edition

Welcome to the first edition of the CLC News. In each edition, we will highlight all of the schools in our learning community to showcase the great things happening.

Elementary Schools

Conley Hills

In an effort to promote STEM curriculum, Conley Hills has created a brand new STEM Lab. Students have the opportunity to experience a hands-on approach to Standards Based Learning. Both in-school and after-school classes are being offered to students. We have partnered with the community and businesses such as Home Depot, Fulton County Water, and the National Park Service to conduct lessons with our students.

Middle Schools


The 6th grade students at Woodland MS visited Junior Achievement's BizTown at the Georgia World Congress Center on September 17. This unique opportunity sponsored by Junior Achievement and Chick-fil-A teaches students about financial responsibilities and job skills. Here the students are preparing to present their business plan.

High Schools

McClarin High School

McClarin High School welcomes its new principal, Chuck Gardner. Follow him on Twitter @charleswgardner.

McClarin is the recipient of $3.4 million over 3 years from a School Improvement Grant (SIG). The federal SIG grants are awarded to the lowest performing schools to support transformation of the school. Through the grant, the school will aggressively pursue the district’s strategic plan goals and work to improve all aspects of McClarin High School.
