Claymont Elementary School is located on a suburban, tree lined campus which includes a county library and a community center which offers day care and state supported services. The Brandywine School District has modified the former Claymont High School to create a physical and educational environment conducive to the educational needs of our 780 elementary students. To provide an appropriate educational environment, programs are provided to meet the needs of all students in a safe, structured environment. Committed to helping students achieve academic excellence and social responsibility, we dedicate ourselves to developing today's learners into tomorrow's leaders through instruction in the Common Core Standards and the application of these skills in hands-on and real-life situations. We also host the Elementary Gifted & Talented Program for all district fourth and fifth grade students, in addition to serving the elementary population northeast of Silverside Road with Autism Spectrum Disorders in our integrated setting.
