The School Takes Shape
By the 1980s, Clairbourn settled in to offering preschool through 8th grade classes, and had become a popular and respected destination for families seeking a private school education for their children. The campus facilities, however, which still had older buildings from when the property was comprised of two residential estates, required a lot of work, to match the quality of instruction taking place. To bring the campus into the 20th Century, Clairbourn's Trustees established a Master Plan that included a renovated infrastructure of sidewalks, central lighting, irrigation, electrical and gas lines, as well as a new Library, Art Studio, and Music Room. By 1986, all these improvements were in place.
Other key structures, such as a new 4th and 5th grade classrooms building and a Multi-Purpose Building to house indoor sports and assemblies, soon followed in the late 1980s and early 90s.
