    The first thing that you will notice when you first walk into Clairbourn School is that there is a warm and welcoming environment. The staff is also easily accessible to answer any questions you might have. They are sure to greet you every single morning and drop off. They also make sure to be there for a friendly goodbye. The students never want to leave the Clairbourn campus! This speaks volumes!

    Students are eager to learn and go home sharing amazing learning experiences. Most importantly, students seem so happy to be there. They are well spoken and they are not intimidate to speak to adults. They attend chapel every single morning. In chapel, the head of school always delivers a well thought out talk. You honestly can hear a pin drop during chapel, this is indicative of student's undivided attention.

    If I could give this school a 10 star, I would! Check it out for yourself!

    The immaculate grounds were a welcome surprise & set a dignified tone for those who learn there. I attended a session where leadership addressed various topics. I felt safe to ask hard questions about what life on campus would be like for my child. Each interaction was more impressive than the previous person I’d met. At that moment I knew, this was our school. I was invigorated by my visit so I met with the Director of Admissions that morning to share that my child had yet to find her intellectual home and that I’d be humbled if they’d consider her application for immediate enrollment. They politely declined so I completed a fall admit packet for her shot to join Clairbourn. We couldn’t wait to hear & got the unexpected invite to enter as a mid-year admit, we were overjoyed! I’m proud to say she finished the year with ease & splendor. Over summer break, we’ve driven past so we can wave; we do that because Clairbourn is a place she grows in mind, body & spirit.
    My son had a terrible experience at the Kindergarten in Gooden School. Then, we transferred him to Clairbourn School for 1st grade after he finished kindergarten at Gooden School. We are so happy that we made wise decision. Clairbourn School is the best school! My loves the school so much. Teachers and staffs are very nice. They give enough attention to students.
