    We love Colton Elementary School. The teachers administration and staff are great! They focus on individual needs and help position students for success. Small enough to be personal excellent classroom dynamics. Teachers and staff are very approachable toward resolving any conflicts. Facilities are always kept clean the atmosphere at Colton Elementary is positive. My kids look forward to going to school! We are very fortunate to go to Colton schools!

    We've been here 2 years and have had a great experience with this school. Class sizes are small which is a big plus! Teachers go the extra mile to challenge students at all levels. There is good parent involvement.
