MATHCOUNTS is the premiere team competition in the USA for middle schools and Clarke has been state champs on an almost yearly basis. Three or four tryouts are held at the beginning of the year to narrow the pool of team candidates to 15-20 students (of whom 10 will eventually be chosen to represent Clarke at the competitions in February and March). Those 15-20 students will practice weekly before the team is chosen in January. More information on MATHCOUNTS can be found at www.mathcounts.org.

Clarke has been IMLEM state champs each year from 2007 - 2016.
