  • Shelton is a wonderful school. We as Alexis G. parents want her to go to a nice school and she is. Everyone is so nice and friendly there. If there are problems they will handle it the best they can. They really care about the student and the child's education. They give the help the child really needs. It is in walking distants from where will live. We are every please with the school inside and outside. It is clean. They take care of the school and the students every well. Alexis is one of the lucky one to go to a every wonderful school. It beats denver public schools. We moved here 3 year ago and love it here in golden. We wanted Alexis to get a wonderful education and she is. Thank you to all the teachers and staff. Keep up the wonderful and hard work. God bless all of you.
