Clanmore started as a small student body, less than 50 students when I began, there were 5 classmates in my graduating class. The family atmosphere we had back then is something you can still feel when you visit or volunteer today. This is something very difficult to keep as a school grows, but the teachers and administrators make a conscious effort to hold that spirit at its center. At Clanmore every student is accepted and welcomed. There are no cliques, students can be themselves and this individuality is praised not condemned. The teachers work with every individual and develop learning programs specific for each style, and I believe this is what helps students to work together and accept each other regardless of their differences.
