After having spent time/gas and money to take my grandson $ to buy a Clayton School sweatshirt the staff in the office was very helpful and promised me that my grandson would be told that his order had been placed by his grandma (nani) and that the "cash" insisted upon would be given along with the order form to the teacher in charge of this particular project. Come to find out my grandson was NEVER TOLD THAT I PD FOR HIS SWEATSHIRT & the order had been placed 3 days before it was due!! This school leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to cash only projects! good thing I insisted on a receipt!!
I love this middle school. After moving to a different school zone, we had to enroll my son in Clayton instead of Swope where all his grade school friends are going. At first he was very disappointed in having to change to a different school zone and having to make new friends. But now I think it is the best middle school in Reno; my son loves it, is super motivated, and his friends at the other school are not as happy with their middle school experience as my son is. Clayton has a special way of motivating kids and keeping them excited about learning. I love this school!
This school is the best middle school I have enrolled my daughter in. She used to bring me C's and D's but now she brings me A's and B's. The teachers are great and the students are respectful.
After transferring from another middle school I as a parent have been deeply disappointed in Clayton. Some of the teachers appear angry dissatisfied burned-out or incompetent. My strong intelligent healthy daughter has become tainted and is learning not to achieve to her best ability. Get it together Clayton these are our future leaders, teachers, and clergy.
it is an awesome school it made me love school! we had so much fun but still learned what we needed to.
This school has a strange way of helping students stay positive. Maybe instead of running them off and not taking the time to listen to them they might actually want to be part of school events and play school sports. It's really sad when you actually have a good student that ends up being pushed from staying on the right track.
