Welcome to our website and thank you for stopping by our online home. I am always impressed not only with the depth and breadth of the high quality work performed by our students and staff, but also with the passion they demonstrate daily for growth and continuous improvement. We have an outstanding school district, and I hope you get a taste of our tradition of excellence by exploring our District site, as well as by taking a peek at our schools' pages.
While this website is a great resource, spending time with our students and staff is by far the best way to personally experience our school district. I always invite you to have a one-on-one conversation with a member of our educational team to develop a deeper understanding of our community, culture and curriculum.
It is an honor and privilege to be able to serve our Clayton students and community. Thank you for your ongoing support of our schools.
