    "Clairbourn is an excellent school in the Pasadena area. My children have attended the school since pre K. This is our eighth year at Clairbourn. The school is academically strong with a reasonable amount of daily homework. It offers music, art, foreign language (Spanish, French, Latin), computer classes and PE every school day. Everybody who works here is extremely friendly. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. It has a large field for PE and after school sports and a pool. The school also has a nice library which they are in the process of expanding. The students are trained in public speaking from early age and by the time they are in middle school even the shyest students are comfortable speaking in front of the whole school. As a parent you are welcome to get involved in different ways, but there is no mandatory parent volunteering. Overall I feel that Clairbourn is a truly outstanding school which prepares its students for future success."

    "I'm a former student. I agree with the previous reviewer. Academically I've found some of the Pasadena area private schools to be superior to Clairbourn. I assume the expensive tuition is for the beauty of the campus. They won't question you if your child is absent a lot. As long as you pay your tuition, and your child has passing grades, they give you a lot of leeway. I also agree about the lack of diversity at the school. I was there for many years, but had only white teachers (this includes the principals and vice principals). The same 2 or 3 family names are always being touted, and having awards named after them, by the school. It seems like all of the descendants of these 3 families are employed by the school. Everyone who works here must be Christian Science. Their new image is to downplay the Christian Science aspect of the school. But as a student I heard about the religion , and witnessed aspects of it, every day. It is not a mainstream religion, despite the name. I witnessed, and heard, some strange things while a student at Clairbourn. Before considering the school, parents would do well to do some online research of Christian Science."

    "Excellent school, teachers and students. Kids are happy and enjoy learning. Good test scores and motivated students. Definitely a well balanced school."

    "Academically, it is not going to offer anything better than the area public schools, San Marino for instance. So, at the end of the day, you're left wondering what all your tuition dollars are paying for exactly. All faculty come from the same Christian Science pool and the student body is severely lacking in diversity (think SGV). If you want a school that is full of social and fun things for the moms to do during the day, like literally hang out on campus all day, then this is the place for you. If you want to pay this kind of tuition and expect a substantial education for your child in return, then look elsewhere."

    "Probably the most beautiful lower school in all of San Gabriel valley. The staff is loving, caring, and pays attention to every child. From K to about 2nd grade, parents frequently wonder if their kids are learning because kids are not subjected to tons of homework; but I can assure everyone that kids in K-2 are learning through play (which is the best way to learn). Third grade is when academics pick up (but still manageable). In summary, if you measure academic success by the amount of homework your child receives, there are plenty of schools in the area that will bury kids in homework. If you want to join a community where parents get to know one another and kids learn through life experiences, then Clairbourn might be the place for you and your family. One other point to clarify - Christian Science is NOT Scientology. Everything they teach at school is about citizenship, how to be a great person, etc."
