    Great school. Great staff. Great community. I am proud that my son attends Claybon.!

    Claybon is a wonderful school my children were fortunate to have had wonderful teachers thus far. The ladies in the office are very 'clique-ish' and can be friendly or un-friendly depending on their mood for the day as someone else mentioned. I've never had any problems in any area except when my child was bullied in 2nd grade on a small scale however I was satisfied with how it was handled. I am extremely dissatified with the lack of involvement from parents with the class parties & lack of participation from parents & teachers in the PTO meetings. As a room parent I ended up paying over $100 to cover what parents would not donate for a schedule of gifts provided by the Class Party Committee.

    Claybon is a wonderful elementary school. From the community involvement teachers principals and support staff they all work perfectly together!

    My children have been at Claybon since it opened having about 9 teachers. For the most part the school seems organized and the atmosphere is pleasant. There are some very good teachers and a few poor ones usually the new ones. The administration would do well to mentor the new teachers more closely because the children suffer when they spend an entire year with someone who is still 'learning'. The ladies in the office can be friendly or not depending on the day. Any medical involvement with the school nurse can be frustrating; be prepared to get official documentation for any little thing--it might be easier to take your child to the nurse at the doctor's office!

    Luckily the majority of the teachers make up for what is lacking in the leadership of the school overall. The teachers are for the most part very experienced. Many have taught in Forney ISD for many years. These teachers are able to turn the school into an excellent learning environment for the students despite the poor overall leadership and motivation provided by the principle.
