What Are The Schools Like In Clayton,NC
There are some excellent schools in the Clayton Area of North Carolina. The schools are Johnston County Schools and like anywhere some are great and some are not so. The location of your address is what determines the school your child will go to. The county is divided into areas and if your subdivision or land falls in that area, your child goes to the elementary, middle and high school for that area.

Wake County our larger neighbouring county, the largest in the state have been struggling with their system of school assignments. In Wake Co. you cannot be guaranteed that your child will go to the school around the corner unless you are successful in getting them assigned to that school which is done on a first come first served basis. If the school you picked for your child is full they get bumped to your second choice and then to your third if that one is full. The 2012-2013 school year is the first year they have tried this so it will be very interesting to see how it plays out.
