I would caution prospective parents from considering The Clariden School for a number of reasons. First, the quality of education in the elementary and middle schools is severely lacking in math, science, and technology as compared to what many of the students are exposed to in the surrounding public
... Read more schools. I was shocked as a parent to learn that my child's peers in public school are further along in math, have greater exposure to technology, and are involved in many more science projects than my child has been. Secondly, what you sign-up for may differ greatly from the education your child actually receives. The Board of Trustees hold the power to change personnel as well as the direction of the school without involving parents. Once your contract is signed you will be responsible for your entire tuition even if the product you receive is completely different from what you thought you were purchasing. Lastly, many are questioning the long-term health and viability of the school with enrollment down in the Elementary school as well as the Upper School where enrollment dropped from thirteen students to two.

No place for working mothers I was shocked at the response I received from the director of the school, when in her letter she stated she would be helpful and listen. Not the response I encounter. Great teachers!

This school has a long history of board members who make shortsighted decisions not based on how any good private school operates. Because of this, the mission is unclear; there are many students who have disabilities; and turn over is very high. If you want a never ending drama, you can go here. Otherwise,

I have 3 children at Clariden and have been at Clariden for 5 years. In my tenure, there has only been two new teacher additions and one attrition. That seems AMAZING for any school. In addition, the new teachers are incredible, one of whom brought a huge following of parents from her prior school. I

My children have spent their entire careers at Clariden and am I very happy with their individualism, their capability, and their happiness and self-confidence. It's true that you won't see tests or rote memorization. But my kids have always surprised and impressed me with their ability to work out

I have often attended the in-class experience for adults, where we can actually have the same lessons are children learn, and every single time I have learned something that public school did not teach, or did not explain. The teaching methodology is fantastic, it and the faculty are caring and respectful of students. I abhor the treatment of our children by public schools as lesser humans, and Clariden does not follow the pack. Kids are given the freedom and the respect to make their own decisions. They are not without guidance, and when their own decisions or motivation falters, the faculty is right there to set them back on track. I am looking forward with keen interest as the upper school program develops and grows, as I am very happy with the lower and casa programs my children have experienced. Read less
