I had an excellent experience throughout my four years of high school. I loved how the teachers were friendly and that we were able to leave campus during our lunchtime! This showed how the district trusted us with the choices that we would make. Overall, I recommend people to attend Clayton High School because the environment is upbeat.

Clayton is a wonderful school. The environment is conducive to promoting positive learning experiences. The family support(s) and resources are always available.
The students are very welcoming, constantly sharing their knowledge of educational experiences and showing team building spirit!
The school is recognized for achieving state standards, diversity , positive school culture, and college readiness programs.
Clayton high school is the best school chosen by many! And always a good choice of schools to attend.
While all publics schools have a lacking education system and ineffective teaching methods, Clayton High School is still a comparatively very good school with a diverse, progressive and open community. One issue Clayton notoriously has, however, is an expectation to do 'everything;' to be an average student is to be in at least one sport, multiple honors or APs, and to be striving for Ivy league colleges for careers as doctors and lawyers- and that's just an average student. Clayton students have far more pressure on them than other schools, but at the same time the school itself is fantastic.
