Welcome to Clarion School, where we believe the power of curiosity lives within each and every child. Our mission is to ignite and keep alive the endless quest for discovery in children. A child with a curious mind will forever be empowered for the possibilities of an undefined future.
Welcome to Clarion School
Welcome to an exciting education future at Clarion School where we nurture creativity and a love of learning through experiential learning and a strong academic program.
Children learn best when they are interested in a topic, remain engaged and are appropriately challenged. At Clarion School, we have created an environment in the heart of Dubai that is perfect for children’s learning and growth.
Clarion teachers take an active approach to learning while supporting the development of the whole child. We have developed a community-based curriculum that emphasises the relationships between school and the outside world through discovery learning. We look forward to partnering with you on this exciting education journey!

A Higher Standard of Teaching
We’ve built Clarion School on the experience and passion of our dedicated teaching staff who all hold a Master’s Degree in Education. Their in-depth knowledge and experience will engage your children with a deeper, richer and more meaningful learning journey. At Clarion, our mission is not to give your child the answer but instead to give them the opportunity to discover it themselves.
An Environment Designed to Engage
Clarion School is designed as a haven for inquiring minds. Spacious classrooms, large outdoor learning spaces, wide learning corridors and student engagement areas have all been created to support a progressive education.
Our inspiring campus is in the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world and a monument to Dubai’s aspirations to being the global center of innovation and possibilities. Clarion educators in collaboration an award-winning architectural firm in Dubai have designed an environment that encourages the learning, innovation and the limitless possibilities of your child.
A Progressive American Education
We are an American school delivering a progressive education. At Clarion, we use the same educational approach adopted by the top private schools in the US. Our approach to teaching and learning develops the foundations for literacy, numeracy and science while developing the skills of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and individual character traits of persistence, leadership and empathy. Our goal is to empower children who are confident to take on the challenges of an ever-changing world.
The curriculum is designed to align with US Standards of the New York State Common Core + 15. A strong STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) is implemented through the school.
Language and Music
We begin the study of French and Arabic in Pre-K and continue throughout all grades. Additional languages will be added in afterschool activities and in upper grades.
Our music program offers a mix of music genres for all grades culminating with annual recitals and musical productions. A highlight of the elementary music program is the Grade 2 guitar ensemble. Every student learns the guitar and participates in the Grade 2 ensemble.
Clarion, the leading progressive American curriculum school, is located in the heart of Dubai near Downtown. Staffed by class teachers who all have a Master's degree in Education from the top US universities, the curriculum is rich, meaningful and challenging allowing for children to deeply engage with their learning. The designed environment is to support children’s understanding that learning happens within themselves and not within a classroom.
