Principal's Message

Welcome to the H. Clarke Powers website.  HCP is  an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and we are currently a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP).  The IB programme focuses on depth of knowledge, critical thinking/problem-solving skills, and international mindedness.  We know that International Baccalaureate offers tremendous advantages for students, helping them to become “citizens of the world.”


This website will serve as a general guide to all parents and students at HCP.    You will find information about the school including schedules, sports, and information about our IB Programmes.  Looking for ways to be involved in our school?  Check out our PTC links and find out about school events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year!


I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students.  Thank you in advance for your support and commitment.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 916-652-2635 or
