I have had nothing but problems with this this school. My 6 year old daughter has been bullied on a daily basis . I have expressed my concerns to staff with no avail. My daughter doesn't even want to go to school anymore. Last year in Westside she was outgoing and happy. I have had to talk her into attending Claremont several times in the mornings while she cries outside in the car . Therefore we have incured a few " unexcused tardies" because I was outside in the car trying to pep talk her into going . The principal and music teacher are nice and she says they are the only adults there she feels she can turn to. I feel as though not enough is being done about the bullying. I am quite familiar with the state policies on bullying and have applied to transfer my daughter back to Westside.

What I love about CLAREMONT ELEMENTARY is that there is such diversity of students in both their strengths and in their areas of need. It makes meeting their needs a challenge, but one that is something I look forward to every day! I am honored to work with so many teachers who are willing to go above and beyond to find ways to make learning enticing and relevant to our students. Additonally, our principal, Mr. Young, is such an up-beat, energetic leader, that you just can't help but smile when you see him and tell him one of the stories of our students' successes. If we could bring in a famous author whose name the students' recognized, I belief it would ignite a new flame for their passion for reading. Claremont Elementary may be one of the neediest schools in Claremore, but it is the school with the biggest heart!!!

I have two perspectives about Claremont. I am a teacher here, but also a parent. My child attended here from Pre-K until promoting to the Junior High. I am so happy with Claremont. Is a great environment. The students are happy because the staff is happy and works well together. A quality education is offered here every single day.

I have never been happier teaching! I love this district and this school! Our principal at Claremont is supportive and encouraging! He does it all! I have seen this man weed wacking the grounds, he cares that much! We have a great PTO. They work hard to support our ideas and keep the school a beautiful, fun place to work and learn! Our teachers love their students! A very important fact about Claremont--you will never hear a disparaging word from any staff member about a student or another teacher. We spend our time together collaborating on how to reach our students and meet their needs. I would never retire from being a teacher if I could remain at this school for the next 30 years! If you are reading this as a parent, please consider joining the PTO. There are so few members that do so much, I would like to see them have more support.

NO i do not recommend this school. My son's had nothing but problems ALL year. When he tells his teacher that he is being bullied then he get in trouble or the issue is overlooked. I get a report from the teacher that my son had a bad day and was disrespectful after my son went through the day being called names and was bullied and the problem was ignored and the teacher won't control her class. Yes it was a bad day...No one deserves to be treated like that by anybody.

I really care and love Claremont. The assist. principle is the best ever.! The teachers, for the most part, are on top of everything, good and bad. My son has excelled and learned so much while attending Claremont. No school is perfect, and this one has room for improvement for teachers taking a little more responsibility when they have made mistakes themselves. All in all...I'm very glad my son will be attending Claremont his entire elementary experience.

I love this school. My kid has gone here since Pre-K. We moved away last year. Only to end up moving back before Christmas Break, because my child needed this school and its environment that they create. Its the best school around and we couldn't be happier to be Proud parents of an awesome school.

This school is wonderful! My daughter is in 2nd grade and went to a different Claremore school for K and 1st. At the other school she hated going and her Kindergarden teacher even forgot to sing Happy B-day to her. Now that she's in this new school she loves it and is doing better then ever! We couldn't be happier with the teacher, students, and staff! She now wants to be a scientist and looks forward to learning! Thank you Claremont!!

I absolutely love Claremont Elem., the teachers and staff are very caring, alert, and well on top of the goings on in school and with the students. My son is in the 2nd Grade, has been there since K...and is doing extrememly well, and gets any additional help if needed in any area of his learning. Thank you so much for being such a caring school for our children and their needs. Mary H.

I love this school. My daughter started here in kindergarten and went through 2nd grade. We are moving and I will miss the school and staff very much. They have a strict policy on bullying. Students are expected to follow rules at all times. Everything is orderly and consistent. I hope our new school is as great as this one. We will miss the staff and students very much.

My sons both went to kindergarten at this school and my eldest went through 3rd grade. While the standards are not as high as their new schools in California and now Oregon, the teachers and principal are dedicated to the kids' success. Also, the office staff and librarian are exceptionally caring and compassionate. The librarian (now retired) went above and beyond to find books for my voracious readers. All in all, my kids had a good social and academic experience at this school.

I love this school. They are very strict about bullying and teach students about caring for other students and their feelings. The curriculum is great. My daughter started Kindergarten (2007) and was reading by January. They do a lot of work and keep the students busy and happy. I am very pleased.

I think Claremont is a very good schools. My son (who is in the 1st grade now) started school I was very in pressed with the way the teacher conduct the class and how friendly the teacher. Everytime I had a question? They were willing to try to answer my question The best they could. So am very happy I decides to put my son in Claremont-Claremore school and my youngest will be going to this school next.
