What the school says

"At Clarion, our vision starts with a fundamental question: how do we prepare our children to take full advantage of life’s opportunities as collaborative, productive and responsible members of a global community? We define it as developing active learners who are passionate, curious and can think critically so that they can continuously evolve, adapt and contribute in a rapidly changing world.

In order to accomplish this, Clarion School offers a challenging, engaging and supportive educational programme, enriched by collaboration with our parents, strengthened by strong external partnerships and delivered by the highest standard of teachers. Our class teachers all have Master’s degrees in education and are experts in identifying a child’s interests and learning styles and then developing inspirational and creative opportunities to develop each student’s individual potential.

At Clarion we believe the strong foundational skills of literacy, numeracy and science are critical, but not enough to allow our children to succeed in a rapidly changing world. We also nurture intellectual curiosity, reflection and higher order conceptual thinking through an innovative and experiential curriculum."


An American school curriculum that is aligned to the highest level of US Standards including the New York State Common Core + 15. The curriculum is also aligned to the Partnership for 21st Century Learning which ensures that critical competencies and character traits are supported and developed. A strong STEAM focus runs through the school.

From the superintendent

"Welcome to Clarion School, a place that believes in the power of curiosity that lives within each and every child. Our mission is to ignite and keep alive their endless quest for discovery. A child with a curious mind will forever be empowered for the possibilities of an undefined future.

At Clarion, we provide children with deep learning experiences that are rich, meaningful and engaging. We do this where children are challenged to think in a trans-disciplinary fashion. This not only allows us to develop their strong foundational literacies within different subjects but the competencies of collaboration and critical thinking as well as the character traits of grit and responsibility that are so critical in this rapidly changing world.

Our innovative curriculum encourages children to critically think for themselves and become active participants in their own learning.

However, to make this a reality is not easy and that is why we are collaborating with one of the premier educational institutions in the US. It is also why we require all our class teachers to have a Master’s degree in education. Our educators have the experience, training and passion to identify your child’s interests and learning styles and then develop inspirational and creative opportunities to develop their individual potential.

It is also why we have a large amount of time dedicated to teacher collaborative planning and why we are the only school in the region to have a Head of Professional Learning.

I am truly excited to be the Head of Clarion and part of this inspirational journey with you. The future is now and it is an exciting place to be." 

Dr Kandace Williams, Superintendent
