i wnet there and did not like it at all the kids were mean well some of them are and i diddnt like it
The teachers at Claxton Elementary really care and work hard to make certain that their students are prepared for the next level. The school is well organized, clean and safe. Teachers and staff go out of their way to help under-prepared children, but sometimes to the extent that they don't have the time to work with those who 'need' a faster pace, but this is common to all schools at the elementary level (even private). Unfortunately, parent participation is lacking. There are a few who really step up and work a lot of hours to help, but there are many more who don't even bother to visit on parent-teacher day. Those giving the school a very low rating are probably doing so without ever volunteering themselves.
i attended claxton k-6 and my children will attend this school. i would hope that the discipline has become a factor. i want my kids to succeed and the only way is make sure they have responsibilies even in kindergarten. i like the teachers. even though they have been through three principles in three years dosen't mean anything! we better be lucky that we have them. i hope that the teachers continue the hard work to help my child learn and grow with each coming year.
I am not happy at all with this school. The lunch time is only about 20 minutes and that's not enough time for the children to be able to eat. The school needs some work and the leadership is very poor.
claxton has changed since mr.pugg left they are very hard on the kids. they get detention if they are to loud at lunch they are not allowed to sit with there friends they have to sit boy girl boy girl and so on. as far as the teachers there are some good ones and some bad.
We moved to Claxton Community Nov 2005. My daughter was in 4th grade and we came from a Knox Co. school. My daughters grades were on the average of 35-50. Her teacher @ Claxton worked w/my daugther and other students to help improve their scores. Year ended w/daughter making 75 and up grades. I am so proud of my daugther for her hard work and extremely thankful for her 4th grade teacher. We have not had major problems w/Claxton,I myself and my oldest son went to Claxton and did not have issues.
This school has been through 3 principals in the past 3 years. The teachers are moved to different grades all the time. The cafeteria runs out of food by the time 4th and 5th grade come to lunch. The kids whose parents have money are the picks. They send kids with lice home only for them to return the next day and spread it. I dont like this school and I am looking for another school to move my kids to. My 2nd grader was expected to read an 8 chapter, 66 page book with very little pictures in it all in 1 night. She was tested on the book the next day and failed it because she only had time to read 4 chapters. Her teacher jumped all over her because she didnt finish the book and she came home crying that day. Please avoid this school!
