I attended this school many years ago and was one of those students who had free & reduced lunch and breakfast--an extremely important service in an area where housing is expensive but few people have good-paying white collar jobs. I loved this school and my teachers (as did my younger brother & sister) and benefited tremendously from the district's gifted and talented program.
Too much time and money is spent providing breakfast and health care to students. I provide that for my child. It seems the focus in the school is mostly to teach English to non-native speakers and everybody else can stand by while they 'get it'. Standing in the office one day Spanish was the immediate language used by the school secretary to communicate to a student who entered the office. This school saw fit to saddle my second grade student with a bitter tenured teacher who was demoted from a high-level administrative position at her previous school. Staff members with children in the same grade made sure that their children were not part of that class. Our child was lucky enough to be under the instruction of excellent teachers the first years attending Elkhorn. This school year I feel my child was done a great disservice.
I am a 8th grade and i have been in a good place at this school the teachers are nice one of my 3rd grade teacher has been a role model to me she always helped me till the end intill she let me go to next year so this is my summary of this school
