Clayton Elementary has been recognized twice by the Colorado Department of Education with the Colorado Centers of Excellence Award. This award is presented each year to a select group of schools that demonstrate the highest rates of student longitudinal growth with a student population that has at least 75 percent at-risk pupils. Clayton is the largest of Englewood's four elementary schools and serves approximately 425 students in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade.
