Clayton is a small quiet portion of Dayton. Its a suburb with Northmont City Schools as its district.
Clayton Township is a very vibrant and good area to live in here in Ohio. You have the convenience of so many fun and good things to do living in the suburbs. In addition to the shopping areas with entertainment and all sorts of events during the summer season and holiday season. Beautiful sceneries with nice clean parks to enjoy family outings or just take a walk for exercise. Close access to the highway when needed. Very nice place to raise your family.
