I must agree on the the review posted on 11/5/09 some of the parents make your child and you feel weird as if you don't belong there. Also it is too clickish and very hard to volunteer and be part of the school because the other parents don't accept you.

I agree its not that 'diverse ' and some of the other parent's make you feel like you and your child don't belong..
Ok. I don't think that it is a very 'diverse' atmosphere.
Elmwood has provided my daughter with a solid foundation to be a life time learner. The principal and vice principal are excellent leaders of this school and I am very pleased with the overall school atmosphere. The school overs many afterschool activies that my daughter loves. This fact is comforting to a working mother.
