In-School Recognition

From birthdays to holidays to special days, we engage with our students to share and encourage positive situations.  For each student, every day is a special and enjoyable day at Cleary School!

Up-To-Date Tech

Every child learns differently, and some of that has to do with their unique situation.  Cleary School believes in technology and uses everything - from video-conferencing to tablets to smart learning tools in the classroom to give students the best tools to grow!
