Teacher, curriculum coordinator and special education coordinator Anne R. Clark played an instrumental role in designing the curriculum, vision and mission of Boston Arts Academy in Boston even before it opened in 1998. Since then, she has created, developed and fostered innovative schoolwide reforms that have not only increased student achievement but have been implemented on other campuses throughout Boston Public Schools. She created a four-year schoolwide literacy-across-the-curriculum model called Seminar, for which she conducted professional development sessions and taught courses herself. Clark also spearheads the school's full-inclusion program—Boston's first ever for a high school—for which she created a professional development program that allows teachers to pursue alternative in-house certification in Moderate Disabilities. Clark also helped create an innovative, high-quality Humanities curriculum as well as a summer reading course. Her contributions have helped the school achieve a 100 percent pass rate among its students on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS), and 97 percent of its students go on to college.
