We are unlike any other school in North Texas. Our diverse community is infused with positive values, exposing students to many different beliefs and customs. An environment of mutual respect allows for a full and respectful exchange of ideas, teaching students to work productively with one another. As a secular school that welcomes families of all faiths, we foster a safe environment of mutual respect free of political or social influences. Your child will feel safe at Clariden, emotionally and physically.


Our students enjoy learning and they’re really good at it. In our innovative, empowering and joyful environment, learning is fueled by curiosity, collaboration and exploration. With our focus on cross-curricular, project-based learning, your child will become a problem solver and a critical thinker. Our students acquire the skills to be lifelong learners and the mindsets for growth and success. Your child will be encouraged to think creatively and push the boundaries of their abilities, achieving long-lasting academic and personal success.

The Clariden School is an IB World School for the Diploma Programme!

Widely considered the world’s premier academic curriculum, the International Baccalaureate (IB) is the perfect fit with Clariden’s educational philosophy of excellence.

The Clariden School is an IB World School for the Diploma Programme. The school and the IB share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging and international education.

The IB Diploma Programme (DP), is a rigorous two-year program specific to juniors and seniors that includes six subject areas and IB “core” elements. Students who apply to pursue the IB DP will engage in a variety of “internal and external assessments” in all subject areas across the two years. Upon successful completion of the DP, students will graduate with two diplomas: The Clariden School diploma and the International Baccalaureate diploma.

When our students speak, we listen. With our inquiry-based approach, your child will be a partner in their learning and have a voice in shaping their educational experience. Students are given many opportunities to express themselves including numerous presentations of their learning. As a result, they become confident advocating on their behalf with teachers and other adults. We encourage children to take responsibility for their learning and challenge themselves to achieve ambitious goals.


Particularly as part of our Upper School, students engage in independent, self-directed study choosing from an array of electives. Overseen by accomplished faculty, students devise and complete projects, many with a focus on STEAM, rocketry and robotics. With a strong educational foundation, Clariden students are independent, self-motivated, confident, and prepared for their future learning. Our graduates are accepted to schools of their choice including many prestigious colleges.
