Clearway is a very special place. Run by four co directors who each also serve as educational advisors to several students and some of whom also teach and supported by outstanding teachers and staff, Clearway changes lives. The school is equally committed to each students academic and social/emotional growth. Everything is individualized and carried out with clarity, care and compassion. The staff are excellent teachers and outstanding mentors who know so much about each child it is mind boggling. I feel very lucky that my daughter is a student here.
