A Brief History
Nestled within the Great Lakes neighborhood of Decatur, Clairemont Elementary School is surrounded by neighborhood homes. There have been changes since Clairemont was built in 1936. In 1951 a lunchroom and two classrooms were added. In 2001 a renovation of Clairemont was completed using SPLOST funds. Improvements included new heating and air conditioning, a new media center and new classrooms. In 2005 four new classrooms, as well as a new playground and covered P.E. area, were added to the facility.
The faculty and staff at Clairemont share a strong commitment to maintaining a challenging, nonjudgmental, cooperative, and friendly school environment, believing that it is in this type of environment that children learn best. Instructionally, Clairemont focuses on a national school design called Expeditionary Learning, which is a hands-on, project-based, approach to learning. Teachers lead students to be responsible for their own learning in a hands-on experiential manner.
