Clarkfield Area Charter School is a small K-6 school located in Clarkfield, Minnesota. CACS faculty and staff believe it is our responsibility to provide excellence in education for our students.To help accomplish this we have capped classroom sizes at a 15:1 student-teacher ratio, which allow us to more individualize our approach to education for each student. This "small school" approach has allowed for an extended famly environment in which student's teachers get to know the children and families very well. This relationship allows us to celebrate successes and intervene before obstacles become road blocks. Our extended family approach creates a safe environment that students can excel in, parents can participate in, and the community can be proud of.
