    "Clairbourn's excellent curriculum and nurturing atmosphere did an amazing job preparing my son for high school. He greatly benefited from the small class size as well as the drama and sports programs. He is taking Honors Geometry this year and next year has been accepted into AP History, Honors English and Honors Chemistry. This would not have been possible without the fabulous education he received at Clairbourn."
