School Notes:

  • The Clariden School of Southlake's Lower School program is grounded in the Montessori philosophy. Our accreditation through Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) ensures that the integrity of Dr. Maria Montessori's vision is maintained throughout our Lower School classrooms.
  • In Montessori classrooms, lessons are given to students individually or in small groups.  Personalized instruction such as this allows the teacher better opportunity to gauge both the ability and interest of individual students at a level of detail unmatched by many other educational models.
  • The Upper School (7,8,9 and 10th grades) is designed to engage students through a  highly personalized, challenging, and innovation-driven curriculum that makes learning relevant.  Students will use hands-on, active, project-based learning to complete challenging projects that will have real world applications. The program requires students thoroughly understand, integrate and apply their knowledge.
