Clayton High School was very welcoming. I enrolled in the school during my junior year of High School and it was nervewracking but the people in the school made me feel at home. The school itself tried their best to make me feel comfortable and allowed me the chance to thrive. I joined multiple clubs that they offered and expanded my academic horizon. This was a great school to go to!

My Experience during the time I spent and am still spending at Clayton High School was outstanding. Have you ever wanted teachers, or staff members to understand you, and help you through rough times? Clayton has always provided me with extra help. Teachers put in their after school time and lunch hours to work with me, or the guidance councilors helping me do my best every step of the way. Not to mention, our principals, sports administrator, and coaches were completely understandable with anything you brought to their attention. I made many life long friends and got to experience many new clubs that brought me closer to the community and others. I'd recommend clayton public schools to anyone who asked. Clayton High School truly does deserve a 5 star rating.
I absolutely love being a student of Clayton High School. The teachers and administrators are amazing. It is a very small school, meaning we have a very tight-knit community, and everybody in the school does everything. In big schools, people usually only do one or two things. In CHS, it is not at all uncommon to see the star jock on the stage of the musical.
