The teachers and staff are great. The parents have cliques and some won't give you the time of day. This school is in an exclusive neighborhood and that little club of parents run in a pack. Leave them to their negative world and you and your child will be fine. Like I said teachers are GREAT.
We love Sweet Lily B. Our son is currently a second grader and we have an incoming kindergartner next year. We could not be more pleased with how son is being challenged this year. His teacher, who has been teaching for over 30 years and most of those at Lily B. provides a nurturing environment, but sets expectations for her students very high. We have been very pleased with all that he has already learned in just the first six or so weeks of the school year.
Sweet Lily B. Clayton is a neighborhood school that has served as a second home and foundation for a love of education for children and their families since 1922. Both of my children have attended there since Kindergarten and they are now in 3rd and 2nd grade. I cannot say enough good things about this school. The leadership is committed to making it a place for both social and educational growth. The teachers are passionate about what they do and provide a classroom environment that challenges the children while instilling confidence. The families whose children attend there support the school in countless ways, coming together to contribute their time, energy, and gifts to enhance the place where their children receive an education. Sweet Lily B is an amazing place, and we as a family feel so blessed to be a part of it!
A wonderful public school in the heart of a big city. Diverse in ethnicity and income without the vibe of cliques. Super-sweet kids...seriously. Very involved parents and active PTA but not to the point of over-bearing pressure. True neighborhood feel with the attending sense of responsibility to treasure and support this special school.
Lily B. Clayton is a truly exceptional elementary school. The teachers are excellent, the administrators are top-notch, and the students are engaged, motivated, and above all else, happy. We love sweet Lily B.!
Lily b is the best school is the business. Unbelievable nurturing environment that makes all the kids feel welcome. Teachers are fantastic. The kids at the school quickly buy into the wonderful environment and treat each other exceptionally well. Take a tour of the school and you will end up sending your kids to the school.
Our whole family loves Sweet Lily B. We couldn't be happier. Lily B offers a unique and special combination of qualities you simply won't find anywhere else: top-notch education, fantastic teachers and staff, diverse student population, and wonderful welcoming parents. It is simply the best. There is truly no place like it.
I struggled with deciding between Lily B. and Tanglewood, but couldn't be happier with Lily B.: it is academically challenging, focused on individual support when needed, and provides a much more diverse atmosphere, which I think is an enriching part of our family's educational experience. While they are focused on testing (as all Texas schools have to be these days), I have never felt that testing trumped the priority of the student's development.
Fantastic school. My child previously went to a private school. We found Lily B. Clayton just as academically challenging. The teachers and principal always listen with an open mind. I could also tell the teachers truely cared about my child.
