Our third child entered North Clayton last year. We love the school. It keeps getting better and better. Parents must stay involved. All of the teachers that my children had were very caring and kept me informed.

I love the school to me it is the best overall. I mean every school is not perfect but still it is good. I am currently a student in 6th grade now going to the 7th but so far everything to me is just great. So this school North Clayton Middle is just the beat to me personally.

I think this is a great school overall. It does have its problems like [it] needs more disipline. But if u think about it, no school is perfect. North clayton is a great school it just needs tweaks just like all the rest of the schools. Im a student and I love its extra curricular activities and the teachers. This is a great school to put on your list. (Plus we made ayp 3 years in a row)

I think that this school, overall is okay more disipline is needed, but there are some things that are not the students fault. I for one am a almost 4.0 student and not that much has gone one except the profanity, but overall it is an alright enviroment.

I love North Clayton, but the only thing that is wrong with it is that the violence is out of control. Something needs to be done about it.

I think that as a parent in clayton county that North Clayton needs more discipline because my child cheers at her school and she and teammates should not have to be looked at innapropiately because they treat them with respect so why shouldnt we get that back? Parents it would be a bad choice to send your child to that disobedient school, the kids there run around using filthy words more than i have ever heard a child use before!

Posted August 22, 2003

I am very interested in being able to transfer my child to another school in my area that is not on the needs inprovement list. I overall am not satisfied with this school. There are a lot of issues that need to be addressed and a lot of changes that should be made in order for this school to meet my standards as a concerned parent. I am in fear of my child's education and also the enviroment that this school reflects.
