Clarendon Elementary School, founded in 1970, is located in North Clarendon, Vermont is surrounded by history and nature. A handful of National Historic sites are nearby as well as a section of the Appalachian Trail. The school reflects that history and appreciation for nature.

At CES we take pride in our community. As a Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports School (PBIS),  we focus on developing relationships to strengthen the classroom and school community. Our students and Staff work every day to practice our school-wide expectations: Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Safe, and Be YOUR Best! These expectations are taught across school settings. In addition, each month, students learn about character traits that make a strong community member. We want to make sure every member of our CES community feels respected, cared for, and safe. 

Clarendon Elementary staff strive to deliver the best instruction. We focus on using research-based practices and student data to drive our instruction in Reading and Math. We have adopted the Bookworms Curriculum for Reading and Writing, and Eureka Math 2 for Math.
