2014-2015 School Tours and School Video

Thank you for your interest in Clarendon Elementary School. Please watch our school video which includes much of the information that we cover on school tours. There’s more information below the video as well.

Clarendon’s school site is home to two distinct programs: a general education program (also known as “Second Community”), and the Japanese Bilingual Bicultural Program (JBBP). Admission to each program is handled separately by the EPC, meaning that when you apply to Clarendon, you choose to apply to the Second Community program, the JBBP program, or both. Tours at Clarendon will cover both programs equally and simultaneously.

Our tours should offer you a glimpse of what campus life is like—for students and parents—at Clarendon.

Tour Schedule
All tours start promptly at 9:45am and last approximately one hour.

We look forward to seeing you at Clarendon!

Please note that our tours are for adults only. Babies in carriers are fine, but please refrain from bringing preschoolers or toddlers as we do not have care available to them during tour times. We appreciate your cooperation.

Both Clarendon JBBP and Second Community will be represented at the Enrollment Fair in November as well.

District Deadlines & Information

The nonprofit Parents for Public Schools is an excellent resource for navigating the enrollment process. PPS is a network of public school parents; it is not funded by the school district and so maintains its independence. They host helpful enrollment workshops in all parts of the city.
