  • Okay, first of all, the principal was temporarily suspended for having allowed another student of the school to have his grades changed due to their relationship. Since I only attended my ninth grade year, I can personally say that the Honors teacher are quite basically a joke. The math teacher cared mostly about her own reputation and taught us as though we were still in elementary school. This would be okay if it wasn't exactly questioning our own intelligence. "Okay, class, repeat after me: probabilities." Really?

    The AP World History teacher didn't even actually bother teaching us. It's no wonder no one ever scored an actual 3 on the AP exam. We would sit there and watch videos. We had a choice of whether or not to pay attention; and even then, the class was much too rowdy. The teacher would just sit at his computer doing who knows what.

    The literacy teacher seemed the most capable out of all teachers at the beginning of the year. However, she disrespected the students to the point it was just humiliating. She was known for her blunt attitude; this would be just fine if she were not a teacher.

    The biology teacher was known for favoring particular students and would pass them without a second thought. Did you fail a test? Okay, she'll change the grade. You could skip class with meager excuses such as, "Oh, I'm helping another teacher." They wouldn't question you at all.

    There were firecrackers in our trashcans. Yes, that's awesome, but pretty disruptive. Homework? Ridiculous. 75% of our homework would generally be projects, and even then they didn't bother grading half of the ones that deemed essential for the student populace. How do I know? I check the gradebook. Nothing.

    If you have good looks, you'll go through North Clayton with an absolute breeze. Some students are quite friendly, but without a doubt, "ghetto". Counselors are useless, just so you know now. Unless you gain favoritism that is. The janitors had a short temper, but the cafeteria ladies were wonderful.

    I definitely wouldn't recommend this school if you actually cared about your education. It gives you so much work and grades you with biased opinions. Oh, and when you get your schedule, it's extremely disorganized. You won't get your REAL schedule until a month later.

    If you're going there, I wish you the best of luck. The other teachers of the school don't have much of a reputation either; besides the 10th grade math teacher being a pedophile with a preference of Asian children.

  • I was a student at North Clayton and I must say that it is a very bad school. Most students there fail and only 50% of the students in each class will graduate. The students are very disrespectful towards the teachers, so that makes it hard to concentrate. The books are old and outdated and the teachers don't care that much about passing the students. Also there are a lot of pregnant girls in the school and the ones that are not pregnant have kids of their own already. The male students in that school are very disrespectful and they sell drugs during the middle of class and they even do drugs in the school. I don't recomend this school for anyone that wishes to include their child in positive surroundings.

  • i didn't like this school very much.the kids were alright, some were very friendly toward me others seemed to not notice me at all. the teachers were good. they taught good lessons, at times they were a little chaotic but for the most part i like them. the principal was always, from what i saw, doing his job. though i didn't get to know many of the people i was very apprehensive when i'd heard they'd thrown one of the girls out for being pregnant. they may not condone that kind of behavior but maybe she could've stayed at least until the baby was born and come back.

  • I just moved here and I wasn't very optimistic, but I'm having fun and look forward to making friends and connecting with teachers to get the education I need.
