  • "Amazingly supportive learning environment..."

    Stephen W. Pasadena, CA

    Clairbourn is an amazingly supportive learning environment with excellent balance between academics, sports and social activities. Students graduating from Clairbourn are some of the most well rounded and academically strong students you will find in the greater LA area.
  • "Clairbourn is an outstanding school."

    David S. Rowland Heights, CA

    Clairbourn is an outstanding school. My son is graduating from the eighth grade next week after attending the school continuously since Pre-Kindergarten, a total of 10 years. I've driven him to school every day and it's a pleasure to arrive at such a beautiful campus and be greeted by friendly staff, teachers and parents. The teachers handle virtually every situation very calmly but firmly.

  • "Delighted with both the challenging academic education and the supportive, nurturing environment..."

    Elise W. Pasadena, CA

    My daughter just graduated from 8th grade at Clairbourn, and we were delighted with both the challenging academic education and the supportive, nurturing environment the school provided. The class of students she was with was wonderful, all with supportive parents, and they grew to be almost like family for us. If you're looking for an elementary or middle school education with a more personal touch, that provides rigorous academics, but with a "heart", Clairbourn is a school that you really should look into. We will definitely miss it..
  • "My son loves going to school everyday."

    Andrea R. Los Angeles, CA

    My son's critical thinking skills have improved tremendously! There is a lot of hands on learning. This is a traditional school with a slight progressive feel. My son loves going to school everyday. The administration really listens to the teachers and the parents.
  • "Very family oriented and a true parent's dream come true..."

    Morgan K. Pasadena, CA

    Clairbourn, Clairbourn, Clairbourn School....boy, oh boy, what more can I say about this great school nestled on the San Marino/San Gabriel border. This place is wonderfully located on Huntington Drive so it's convenient to get to wherever you live! This school is very family oriented and a true parent's dream come true. I love the fact they allow parents on campus because they are all about parent involvement and interaction with their own children.
  • "We feel fortunate to be part of such a wonderful school."

    Laura G. Pasadena, CA

    Clairbourn School in San Gabriel, California is a treaure! Our son began attending Clairbourn for pre-kindergarten and is now going into 3rd grade. He has learned a lot academically, in the arts, music, computer and sports. He has blossomed. He goes to school happy, and comes home happy. He loves his teachers, classmates and the school staff. As a family, we have had the same experience. The teachers and staff are wonderful. They truly are interested in bringing out the best qualities in every student. In addition, the campus is beautiful. We could not ask for anything more. We feel fortunate to be part of such a wonderful school. We look forward to our son continuing through the 8th grade at Clairbourn School.
