Clayton High School is a small school in a small town with a lot of heart! This school has an average graduating class of about 80 students each year! But don't let the size fool you. Clayton High School boasts with a brand new state of the art Performing Arts Center, District Championships in almost every sport and moving up in the ranks in education! I love my school!

I really love Clayton. It’s small but very friendly. You really get one on one time with not only the teachers but the administrators as well. For instance I know almost very teacher and administrator in Clayton. They are all very involved within the school and various programs! They have a lot to offer. Since the school is so small I was able to be involved in many activities and sports; I’ve participated in the JROTC program, NHS, basket ball, swim team and field hockey. I’ve really had a wonderful time attending Clayton.
As a Pre-K through 12 student of the Clayton Public School District, I have experienced the elementary, middle and high school levels here. Though I have been given many opportunities in my high school years and had many positive experiences, my middle and elementary experiences were less than pleasant in and out of the classroom.
