A Progressive American Education that Facilitates Deeper Learning Recognized as one of the Best American Schools in the UAE by Schools Compared
"In an ever-changing world, schools cannot be seen as the center of learning but as an enabler of learning. Learning has to be a continual and lifelong process that happens intrinsically within a child.
Our responsibility in supporting your child is simple. To provide your child an opportunity to explore their interests and passions, challenge them to realize their potential, give them the tools for success in school, higher education, career and life and do so in a well-balanced way that brings happiness to their life.
How we do that is not simple and is what makes the Clarion learning ecosystem so powerful. It is also a shared responsibility between the school and home to ensure your child can develop into the best person they can be.
Clarion school, the only progressive American school in the UAE, has a strong reputation for its dedication to excellence but more importantly, to children.”
Larry Thaxter, Principal
Our son has spent three glorious years at Clarion. What sets this school apart is an incredibly talented principal, a dedicated group of passionate teachers who take learning seriously and a committed parent community that is like-minded and inclusive. Our classrooms are noisy because our children are encouraged to talk, to find their voice, to explain their point of view and they are allowed to have an opinion. Clarion is about learning, leading, questioning, field-trips and exploration . . . it's a magical place for a child.

Clarion has a truly a child centered approach, personality is nurtured here, constructivism suits our child and it’s happening at Clarion. Progressive education feels like an over-used term but the leadership team at Clarion ensure it’s a reality. The school is a wonderfully multicultural experience with over 40 nationalities. As parents we are also on a learning journey too, this isn’t how we experienced school and we are relishing the difference.

This is my son’s third year at Clarion. He’s currently in K2 and we love it. The educational experience is extremely well rounded - children learn independence, confidence and socialize well with their peers. Teachers spend so much time with each child due to the low student to teacher ratio and the progress my son has made is phenomenal. He loves learning and often comes home, eager to show us what he has learnt. The parent community is amazing! We are happy that our son gets to experience such a progressive approach to education and feel part of a great community.

I love Clarion. My son has just started his second year there. The teachers are fabulous, the parents are lovely, and they really focus on your child as an individual.
When I went for the school tour I found myself nodding in agreement as they shared their philosophy. After my son started, I could tell that it underpins everything they do at school, every day.
