As students arrive at The Clock Tower Schools, they will be greeted at the Welcome Center, where trauma-informed student orientation will take place. Families are encouraged to be present for orientation so we can begin building trusting relationships from day one.
After onboarding, new students will be welcomed for the first time into Pride Hall. Like the Welcome Center, Pride Hall is a positive environment where students will spend much of their time learning, growing, and socializing with their peers and staff members.
