Superintendent's Message

Welcome to our website! We hope it provides you with the information you are seeking. If not, please use the contact information on this site to call us or simply email us with your questions, comments and/or suggestions. We hope you have a fantastic day! 




Here at Clarksville Schools, we are very thankful, to live in a country where we are free to pursue our dreams and where we have so many educational opportunities to help us accomplish our goals, and live the dream! I hope you make today the day you rededicate yourself to your dream and take advantage of the opportunities this school district provides. There is no doubt that this school can provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to meet the challenges you will face as you strive to seize your dreams. 

Recently I was at an educational conference listening to a speaker discuss the increase in competition our students will face for jobs with nations in the Far East such as China and India. The speaker said something that really encouraged me concerning our nation and our future. His comment was that theses nations had become very good at copying American products. So much so that many of our manufacturing jobs had relocated to that part of the world. However, the one skill that these nations desire the most, yet it continues to elude them, is the creative genius behind the conception of the products they are copying. For you see, it is our freedom and our way of life that allows the human brain to develop in such a way that our creative thoughts cannot be matched by the individuals living in these nations. We have not maintained our monopoly of the exportation of manufactured goods but we do dominate in the global exportation of ideas and creative thought. If we are to continue this domination and secure this nation’s economic future and viability we must encourage our students to dream the impossible dream and strive to equip and support them as they forge their future and our nation’s future. 

As we move forward, I commit to work with our teachers, parents, school board, and community to insure this district is providing the best education we can muster for our children. I hope you all have a blessed and successful experience while here at Clarksville Public Schools! Please call on me if I can be of service. 

David Hopkins, Ed.D.
Superintendent
