This is an incredible school with a great principal, assistant principal, teachers and staff. They care about every child and work so hard to make sure everyone has a chance at a good education. The PTA is great and works so hard. My mother is a retired New York City principal. She ran an award winning magnet school which is still top rated, 14 years after she retired. She loves this school from the Principal on down. How this school only gets a 7 from Great Schools is beyond me!

I am just new in the area, and my son, who is a kindergartner, just started at Claxton, but so far, I have had a positive experience. My son's teacher is very knowledgeable and communicative. Also, having come from New York, I was wonderfully surprised by the diversity of the student body.

My daughter is in the fourth grade at Claxton and there is a reason why this school is loved by so many. The teachers and the principal have created a loving and supportive learning environment. They go over and above spending time with the children making sure your child is learning. With all the bad things you hear about public school, Claxton is an exception.

My daughter is in the second grade at Claxton. Claxton is a community school with a community feel. I feel the school offers diversity, seasoned teachers, and excellent leadership. The principal is a great listener and is very involved with the students and parents. Great school in a sometimes troubled district.

We love Claxton! Strong parent involvement. Great principal and wonderful teachers. PTA has focus on technology and fitness this year. Bought 9 new computers and putting in a walking/running track.
