I love how friendly the teachers and staff are. I went to clay my whole life and to see my children also go there was a tremendous blessing. Clay is NOT one of those entitlement schools. You will NOT get special treatment for any reason. Being a part of the school was a blast as a room mother and a ...  Read more

My son attended Clay Elementary from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. He "graduated" last year and will be attending CCMS. We had a great experience with most all of the teachers, the office staff, and the other parents and children. All but one year, I felt that the teachers truly care for my child ...  Read more

I have 2 children at Clay Elem. I love the school. The teachers show so much love & care towards all of the students. I have to say, though, the principal is horrible. She says that she cares about the kids, but shows no support in their activities unless it is something that is her idea or will ...  Read more

I agree with the post about the principal. She runs the school very well, but as a parent you are clear on who is in charge. A more service oriented attitude towards parents would go a long way. The other area I recommend for improvement would be more cooperation with Clay Recreation. Clay Elementary ...  Read more

The teachers are great at Clay. They are very supportive. The RLC program is awesome. The principal has a power issues. She likes to flex her muscles at the cost of your child and the community.
