Greater Clark County Schools is the largest of three school districts in Clark County and we're growing rapidly. Located on the Ohio River in Southern Indiana, the Greater Clark district comprises 215 square miles. Jeffersonville serves as the county seat and is located on the Ohio River directly north of Louisville, Kentucky. Clarksville, the second largest community in the region, is also located on the Ohio River between Jeffersonville and New Albany. Charlestown has a population of approximately 6,000 and is located ten miles east of Jeffersonville. New Washington is a small rural town on the far north side of the county with a population under 1,000.
Greater Clark County Schools is the 21st largest school corporation in the state operating twenty buildings: twelve elementary, three middle, two high, one middle/high and two alternative schools. Serving a student population of approximately 10,500, Greater Clark offers a variety of courses and academic atmospheres to students at all academic levels. Our school corporation is experiencing rapid growth, particularly in the Eastern segment of the school district and recently built a new Charlestown High School and renovated Jeffersonville High School and New Washington Middle/High School.
Greater Clark County Schools' vision is to become nationally recognized as a premier provider of education by serving as the bridge connecting stakeholders to ensure all students are college and career ready.
Greater Clark County Schools' mission is for stakeholders to give 100 percent effort in meeting the academic and behavioral needs of each student ensuring acceptance to a post-secondary opportunity.
