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.


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 a Candidate School* for the IB Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that The Clariden School believes is important for our students

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit


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.
