We are Clemente, where the love of learning in future leaders is brought to life!

Our school is all about cultivating the whole child to be a well-rounded leader in all areas of life – both while in school and beyond. Our mission is developing tudents who are literate, numerate, able to think critically and have the social skills and personal habits of mind that prepare them to be healthy and productive members of society. We put our mission into action to create a sense of community engagement and ownership with a student pledge. This pledge emphasizes courtesy, respect, contributing to a positive and safe learning environment, preparation and excellence, and helping everyone at the school feel capable, connected and contributing.


How to Know Clemente is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child enjoys learning thematic based learning.

○ Your child wants to learn through handson project-based activities.

○ Your child is interested in using interactive technology to develop communication skills and apply them to real world experiences.
