Clover Avenue School opened its doors in September 1954 to 55 excited and energetic neighborhood students. Clover currently serves almost 550 students on the very same campus, with the addition of many new facilities, including a Wonder of Reading Library, a computer lab, and several gardens, including a Literacy Garden.
In 2004, we at Clover proudly celebrated our 50th anniversary with a day-long reunion picnic and grand celebration. So far, we are enjoying our second 50 years here at Clover. We hope that, if you join our family, you’ll feel the same way.
