School Notes:

  • The objective of Clement School is to provide a safe environment for children to learn, and to establish a solid foundation which will carry them through the rest of their lives. Since this is your child’s first educational experience and we aim to make learning fun.
  • We create a base for children to build toward their future academic and personal success. Our philosophy is that each individual child should receive the opportunity to grow in the areas of social, emotional, physical, creative and cognitive development. Under the guidance of our highly qualified, dedicated, caring teachers we have created an environment where the love of learning begins. Come join us!
  • Established in 1975, Clement School is located ideally in the Almaden/Blossom valley area of south San Jose. The school is situated over 1.3 acres area with an expansive playground located securely in between our two classroom buildings. The Directors, Mrs. Shahana Shah and Mrs. Vivian Klose manage the daily activities of the school. Clement has preschool, pre-Kingergarten, and Jr. Kindergarten programs for ages 2.5 years to 5 years old. Clement offers 2 half-day, 3 half-day, and 5 half-day programs for morning or afternoon sessions. We pride ourselves in our small class sizes with a 12:1 ratio so that we ensure your child receives the personal attention they deserve.
  • We are proud to have attracted one of the most experienced, educated, and passionate teaching staff in the valley. Many of the teachers and administrators have been with the school for over 20 years. We select only the kindest, warmest, and most patient teachers and staff to ensure the best environment for your child's development.
  • The school can presently accommodate up to 400+ students and remains as one of the most sought after schools in the area.
  • Under the same ownership and philosophy, Clement's sister school, Precious Preschool (, is also located in the Almaden valley area for your convenience.
