Success By Design
At all grade levels, small classes are designed to motivate, engage, and support students to reach high levels of achievement. Learning is active with a growth mindset focus, and teaching is a dynamic blend of both traditional and innovative methods.
A wide variety of co-curricular programs allow students to expand their learning well beyond the core curriculum to become responsible, respectful, and caring scholars and leaders.
Right Fit for Families
Students are accepted to Clairbourn's elementary and middle school grades on the basis of their previous academic performance, in-house academic assessment for Grades 1-4, standardized test scores for Grades 5-8, writing samples, teacher recommendations, and, in the case of preschool through kindergarten, their maturity and school readiness. We welcome students of any race, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin.
Parents are also welcome on campus! Our families are an integral part of Clairbourn’s vibrant community demonstrating to their children the value of education by participating in the life of the school.
Education at Clairbourn School is founded on a belief in the ability of every student to achieve balanced and competitive academic success. We strive to impart in our students not only the mastery of academic content, but also the development of intellectual habits and leadership skills, and a strong social and cultural competency. The school embraces proven educational methods informed by research, and the school constantly updates its program with fresh, innovative ideas, tools, technologies, and experiences. This commitment to educational excellence is founded on the following core beliefs.
