Established in 1954, Clare Cherry School serves as a creative and hands-on learning program for ages 2 through six grade. The school strives to provide a learning environment that encourages and challenges each child to be all he or she can be aesthetically, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially, thereby fostering the high level of self-esteem needed for a happy and rewarding future. Clare School has the smallest studentteacher ratio in the Inland Empire, supplying young children with learning advantages.
With her two children who were enrolled at the school during their childhood years, Director, Gina Howard has worked for the Clare Cherry School for 18 years.
She says "My focus is to reach a more diverse community. When people think of private schools, they think of upper-middle class families, and immediately feel unwelcome." Clare Cherry school welcomes all families, and offers various financial programs to accommodate families who are in need.
Clare Cherry school has become a tradition for many families.
While teaching students to get along with one another, the school also aims to build self-esteem. In addition, the low student-teacher ratio exhibits a substantial increase in vocabulary and math training. "Our school is San Bernardino's best kept secret" says Gina Howard.
Newly relocated to 3012 N. Waterman Avenue, The Clare Cherry School is proving to be the best. Many children are above grade level in their academics and have participated in many wonderful learning experiences including field trips and cultural events. The Clare Cherry School instructs foreign languages, music and PE classes weekly. The teachers and staff are caring, friendly and are there to ensure that your child be the best they can be.
Standing by the motto "What I want for myself, I must also want for you and what I want from you I must be willing to give" Clare Cherry has established a wonderful program for the community. Now enrolling, contact Clare Cherry school at www.clarecherry.org or call (909) 883-9168.
As a new partner of the Opportunity of a Lifetime program of the Black Voice Foundation, students will be assisting Clare Cherry in developing diversity recruiting strategies to meet their goal. The Black Voice program is funded in part by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 in cooperation with the Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County.
