About Us

Exceed Expectations


Clayburn Middle School recognizes young adolescents' unique needs and characteristics and has modeled its programs, structures, and classroom instruction to meet those needs.


Teachers team in groups of 2 or 3 to provide an interdisciplinary approach to classroom instruction. Classes loop in grades 6 & 7 to create a strong, caring relationship between teacher and student. The Clayburn Learning Commons boasts over 13,000 books, and students regularly visit the library for pleasure and research. Learning Support Services are available for students in every grade, including ESL, Gifted, and Aboriginal education.


Students in the middle grades must be given opportunities to try new things, learn new skills, and enjoy a hands-on approach to learning. All students participate in the Explorations program, including Media Arts, Technology (Wood, Robotics & Glass), Home Economics (Sewing and Cooking), Drama, and Music. 

Sports & Athletics

Clayburn features strong curricular and extra-curricular programs to keep students active and healthy. Our school also supports a "no-cut" policy for all Grades 6 and 7 athletic teams. Options for students include daily Physical Education and Daily Physical Activity, a fully-equipped Fitness area, an outdoor fitness circuit, a shared track, a lunchtime intramural program, and seasonal sports for grades 6-8.


Students at Clayburn are also given opportunities to participate and take advantage of many other outstanding programs, including Band in Grades 6, 7, and 8, Film & Broadcasting, WEB, Builders Club, Chess Club, Yearbook, Art Club, and more!
