My daughter went to Clendenin for three years and we had a great experience. It is by far one of the best schools in El Paso. We are a military family and they were very supportive.

my son was there for PRE-K to 5TH Grade For me it was the best for my son in this elemantary school. The teachers actually speak to you even in there behaving or misbehaving. There always there for the progress of the students also they are very strick on the events going on, in the school. I would really recomend this school for others, this school can make a difference especially with their great teachers My son has alot of great memories in that school, and those memories will never fade away.
