Colton School District Reviews

3 reviews
Growing up in Colton School District has been a blessing. The community is amazing and the education is incredible. I am currently a senior at Colton High School which is the smallest high school in Clackamas County. Attending such a small school has been very beneficial. Every teacher and staff member genuinely cares about the education and well-being of each student. Also, the teachers at CHS are knowledgeable and wise in their subjects. Each teacher I have had has impacted me positively. With small class sizes, the teachers are able to help each student understand the curriculum better. Attending a small school has taught me not to be afraid to ask questions, seek help, or assist others. Colton School District also offers a great community. The people in the district are always willing to offer a helping hand to anyone in need. Every person in the district strives to provide comfort and assistance to others in anyway they can.

I loved growing up in a small town. I attended this school from kindergarten all the way to graduation. The only bad part about this school is that it's very small and so there isn't many resources for us. But, no school on Fridays!
My school is small and close knit and this allows for a lot of teacher-student one on one time. I have never had a problem communicating to any of my teachers. Also, many teachers at Colton High School are qualified to offer college credit for a number of classes which has allowed me to collect 44 college credits before even graduating high school.
