Welcome to Clayton Elementary School, where Clayton Cardinals are Soaring to New Adventures in Learning. Students, staff, parents and members of the community will be working together to realize the vision of Clayton Elementary.

The faculty and staff of Nan Clayton Elementary share a vision of the future in which all students are challenged to develop a lifelong love of learning. We strive to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment that encourages teamwork, cooperation, and instills an appreciation of diversity among people. We believe that literacy, independent thinking and problem solving are all essential building blocks to becoming responsible individuals.


  • All children possess special gifts, talents, skills and potential, which must be discovered and nurtured.

  • Innovative teaching methods supplement traditional classroom teaching techniques to reach students with many learning styles.

  • The best educational environment includes active participation by students, teachers, families and other community members.

  • As a school, we should encourage and demonstrate positive values.
