Claxton Elementary Ratings & Reviews

My child attempted this school for kindergarten and had an amazing experience. Everyone from the teachers to the office staff was wonderful.

Claxton is an amazing elementary school with incredible teachers who are focused on the needs of all children! There are so many wonderful opportunities for arts, music, and creative endeavors too at a time when federal and state governing bodies are focused solely on test scores. Claxton educators know how important the arts are for the overall development of the whole child, and work hard to build the arts into the curriculum and extracurricular activities!

We love Claxton! The teachers and school community are like an extension of our family. They care about every single student; their education, safety, leadership and character development, arts education, etc. I cannot speak more highly of this amazing school family. The data presented by Great Schools seems skewed from what I see every time I walk in the building. Children are not only happy, but thriving and learning SO much. As a former educator myself (not at Claxton), I am beyond impressed with the PTO at Claxton. They know how to fundraise and fundraise well! The proceeds from PTO are used to supplement activities and learning for EVERY child in addition to field trips, after school arts, classroom supplies, etc. My child loves her teachers, assistants, office staff, and the school administration. The administration is amazing-very approachable and supportive to families and teachers. I have been around schools long enough to know that none are "perfect", but this school is pretty close. They have gone through several changes over the last few years and so far, everything I have seen points to them excelling, especially where it matters most. This isn't just a school, it is a family!

I find this data that great schools has collected to be an inaccurate picture of the amazing school where teachers are happy and children are thriving. My children have attended private for pre K and K and a charter school before we started Claxton. My children love school, are a part of a great community, have so many wonderful opportunities, great friends, caring teachers and an awesome principal. The PTO is beyond amazing, the community is so strong. Nothing is perfect. My children love their teachers and want to be teachers when they grow up. That speaks volumes to how they are learning and are cared for in the environment.

The experience was beyond amazing. This elementary school made sure everyone was welcome. The staff are great people who truly care about helping the students. Due to 2 teachers, they helped me turn around from making Ds and Cs to A and Bs. They informed me that I got everything it takes to become a great student. Because of these two teachers, I started to do better. From 4th grade and forward. In middle school and high school, I made it on the A & B Honor Roll, A honor roll, Beta club, and National Honor Society. Now I a student at Clemson University. I do not know where I will be academically if it wasn't for these two teachers.
