Clarion School

 American Curriculum / 313 views

Clarion first opened its doors to students in 2016 and its purpose built campus is located in Al Quoz area of Dubai.

Their unique curriculum is developed in collaboration with the renowned US-based Bank Street College of Education and based on the curriculum framework of the Bank Street School for Children.  Our standards are aligned to NY State Standards including the Common Core +15.

The curriculum has been developed to ensure that learning is relevant, engaging, challenging and ultimately meaningful to a child. Our approach to curriculum is constructivist allowing for strong personalization of learning, helping to support the needs of each child. It allows for a cultural and linguistic responsiveness, as well as an emergent element that allows teachers to finely articulate the curriculum throughout the year in direct response to the prior learning and backgrounds of our students, while reflective of their interests, needs and strengths.

We nurture intellectual curiosity, reflection and conceptual thinking through an innovative and progressive curriculum.

Through cultivated intellectual curiosity and critical thinking, a Clarion student can adapt to traditional schooling should they need to and flourish in a progressive school.
