Clonlara high school students enjoy a flexible, comfortable space at our campus where they can work collaboratively, hang out and relax, and freely access the outdoors. Study rooms are available for independent work, small group projects, and meetings with mentors. Students use a variety of resources and technology in the classroom to enhance their research.


Students have autonomy both inside and outside the classroom. They are active participants in every aspect of the daily life of the high school. Students participate in decision-making processes, allowing them to help shape policies, programs, schedules, and topics of study.


Our high school curriculum revolves around personalized, project-based learning experiences. Students engage in real-world projects that challenge them to think critically, collaborate with peers, and apply their knowledge in practical situations. This approach not only deepens their understanding of subjects and ensures academic rigor, but also enhances problem-solving and creativity. Students regularly work with mentors, engage with the community, and present their learning to an audience.​
