Principal's Message

Shelton Elementary School is an amazing school located in the quaint neighborhood of Heritage Dells in Golden, Colorado.   Shelton has one of the most breathtaking views of any school here in Jefferson County!   On the average, we enroll about 460 students, kindergarten through fifth grade.  We are proud to say we are a very diverse school both socioeconomically and culturally. Our numbers vary from year to year, but we usually have around 17 different languages spoken, 22 countries represented and about 85 students who have English as their second language. Shelton hosts a center-based program supporting students with Autism and a morning and afternoon preschool.  In addition, we have about 50-60 students on Advanced Learning Plans.  Our staff works hard to differentiate for all students, and we do a great job!
