the teachers and staff are really passionate about the kids having a great attitude, a great education, and great leaders that they can rely on!
Clayton Avenue Elementary is more than a school, it is a community of caring parents, teachers and staff that work together to promote the personal and educational success of every student. Our PTO plans monthly events and activities to bring our families together along with active participation from the staff. Our principal brings a whole new meaning to the word 'leader.' I am proud to be a part of this school and I believe Clayton Avenue Elementary exemplifies what a school should be.
Washington Park and Memorial in Totowa, NJ. It is a community of caring teachers, staff, parents, officials that care about their children and town. They had great incentives when my kids were in school. I was able to see how much they learned every day. They always had great ideas to get the kids to want to learn who alway gave the parent opportunity to join in with the teachers and their kids. PTO planned fun, learning acitivies through out the year. You always saw the parents their eager to be part of it and seeing the kids faces of how proud they were to have their parents helping. Great sports, theatre shows that all the kids wanted to participate, even the shy ones, Science projects and contest that taught the kids about everthing in this world. They even try to help trouble kids with their partents. To our family these two schools was the best life my kids had and they will tell you themselves!
Clayton Ave Elementary has a dedicated group of teachers, staff, and PTO which helps the students thrive! My daughter has had a wonderful experience at CAE!
After carefull research of many different areas to live - My family chose to purchase a home with the Clayton Avenue school in mind for our children. I feel that speaks for the quality we admire in the staff and educational oportunitys available to our children at CAE.
They have helped my son with the needs he requires without hesitation.
I love the schools constant dedication to being the best. The way that the new principal is always willing to take time to talk about whatever is on your minde is wonderful. They have helped my nephew without even batting an eye when he was in need of some extra help. My daughter loves the staff couldnt ask for a better place. One of the reasons why i chose to move to vestal
I love Clayton Avenue Elementary because it s a genuine community that cares for all of the children. Their PTO is absolutely fabulous and always looking to do something fun for the kids. The new principal is meticulously attentive to each and every child as well as to each parent's needs. I speak from personal experience. I can see that my daughter has learned so much and seems ready for middle school! I am thankful. :) It is very much a tight-knit community-type feeling and it will be bittersweet for myself when my daughter moves onto the middle school. I sure will always miss Clayton Ave!! Thank you so much everyone!
Teachers and parents together are dedicated to help the children grown into great adults
I love Clayton Ave Elementary because the staff and teachers are wonderful.
It's a true community that truly cares for all of the students, family and peers.
The teachers are great and the new principal seems wonderful. But why did they do away with the honor roll assembly? Hard work deserves to be rewarded and works as an incentive for all.
My daughter has attended Clayton Ave for K and 1st grade. I am thrilled with the teachers interest in her learning and their ability to draw my rather shy seven year old into conversation and group learning.
