Principal's Message

I am so excited to welcome you to H. Clarke Powers! 

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.  Our staff believes that International Baccalaureate offers tremendous advantages for students, helping them to become “citizens of the world.”  For more information about our IB Programme, please visit our IB webpage.


As a K-8 school, we are uniquely able to help students create a love of learning and friendships that will last a lifetime.  We are unconditionally committed to providing the best possible educational programs and environment for our students. We believe there are numerous opportunities, both within our curricula and through extracurricular activities, for our students to gain the skills that will allow them to become inquisitive lifelong learners.

At HCP we believe that education is a partnership, and that parent involvement is key to a student's continued success.  While campus is currently closed to the public, there are still many ways to get involved.  We have an amazing PTC who is always looking for more members.  Please take a look at their website for more information.  Another great resource to stay informed is the school's calendar of events.

Thank you for your trust and support as we navigate these unprecedented times.  Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.


Go Kodiaks!
