Our Mission The mission of Claysville Jr. High School is to produce responsible, independent, and resourceful students who strive to be productive citizens. This will be accomplished by a competent staff dedicated to providing a challenging and comprehensive curriculum in a safe, positive environment conductive to learning.
Beliefs Instruction should be varied and geared toward individual abilities. To accomplish goals and solve problems, we must work together. Safe and risk-free classrooms are necessary for learning to occur. Educational climate and atmosphere affect the way individuals learn Praise creates a better learning situation. All individuals need a sense of belonging. Students, parents, teachers, support staff, and community members have a shared role in maintaining a successful school.
Claysville School was born of community pride and the tireless labor of the people of the Claysville area. Built on five acres of what would later become prime lakefront property bout for two dollars per acre from C. W. Baird, Sarah Baird, and H. D. Walls, Claysville School was completed on February 19,1929. Led by future Claysville principal, Carl; Waldrop, students and others from community helped to carry the stones from the surrounding mountain ridges that were used to construct the $14,000 fieldstone building. The first four classrooms and an auditorium were built by A.M. (Gus) Alfred with monetary donations and much of the labor supplied by the people of the Claysville community.
Construction of the Guntersville Dam and its accompanying relocation of people in that area increased the population of the Claysville community resulting in the consolidation of the schools at Baker’s Chapel and Henryville with Claysville. By 1950 indoor restrooms and five classrooms had been added as well as a lunchroom. Students had to bring their own plates and cutlery from home. The school had been accredited by that time. By 2003, the campus had grown to two classroom buildings, an activities building, a lunchroom, a gymnasium, and numerous playing fields on twenty-two and one-half acres.
Although many teachers, support employees, and generations of students have walked these halls since the school's first days; pride in the community and the school has not waned. This pride and unending community support have accompanied the evolution of the 1928 fledgling school to the present school nestled on the banks of the beautiful Guntersville Reservoir.
