• Dr. David A. Scott

    David Scott, principal Here at Clinton School education is more than English and Math. We are desirous of honing and fostering an environment that provides the opportunity for our scholars to become their best selves.

    Clinton School serves as the foundation of the education of the future leaders of our City, State, and Country. Through the recent pandemic we have gained a true understanding of the acronym TEAM (Together, Everyone, Achieves, More). TOGETHER we will ensure that our scholars reach their fullest potential.

    I have been an educator for the past 18 years at every level of education from college to elementary school.  I've served as an adjunct professor & college counselor, high school guidance counselor. Before becoming principal of Clinton, I served as the assistant principal for one year and I've been with the district and school for more than six years.

    I bring a passion for the success of all the children and families I encounter.
