Elkmont is a typical example of a small rural school. Pros: Close knit, a school that the same families have attended for generations, your child will be known by name rather than as a number, smaller class sizes and moves at a slower place. Unfortunately, there is little that is exceptional. It is a good school for the average athlete or student.The student numbers are small enough that a child can participate in many extracurricular clubs and teams. The excellent boys' coaches (with college connections) in the main sports who brought in before 2011 are gone. If you have a talented athlete that has the potential to play at the next level, you would be better served attending another school. You are far from the recruiting track except for a couple of D3 schools and schools. If you want a small school experience with its many positives, Elkmont would be a good choice. A new administrator is being hired so school direction may change after June 2013.

There is a serious problem at this school. There is a boy that is constantly causing problems and doesn't have any consequences for his actions. It doesn't make sense why this student is allowed to do as he pleases. Other students are punished for small things while this student gets away with everything. Very disturbing!

Elkmont is a very nice micro community and the school is decent. The students have a very safe and wholesome learning environment. This is a K-12 school and as such they have to do a lot with limited resources. Alabama and Limestone County in particular underfund schools to keep taxes low. Funding levels are typically in the bottom 70% of the US. The lack of funding makes it bit of a challenge with hiring and retaining quality personnel. Most of the teachers are quite good but many are getting older and without quality new hires the school is in danger of slipping into mediocrity. No programs are safe. The school hired an excellent football coach one year and let him go the next. This happens in most other departments as well and making for a more volatile learning environment. Parent involvement at the school is not encouraged however it is not discouraged either. Students can participate in more activities (due to the small size) here even if there are fewer activities to choose from. Students have less academic opportunities here in comparison to a larger or more focused school but in exchange pick up a stronger sense of community and a more values based education.

The school and town of Elkmont are a great place to put down roots. If you are origianally from Elkmont or think you are just passing through you will be suprised how sad leaving will be. You don't choose Elkmont, it chooses you. If you have problems making it a home I am sorry but it is probably you, and the last place you lived and the next place you live will be at fault for all your problems too. You do not have to kiss up as an earlier poster said but being nice helps wherever you live. Lots of activities are available for no cost and if you really want to get involved in an extracuricular activity you will pay extra anywhere you live. As a parent life should have already taught you this. If you choose to homeschool, great, the child filling your seat wants to be there.

I'm a student at Elkmont High School and I would not want to go to any other school. We have so many programs and fun acitivities. You can do mulitple sports (the kind of sports you have to try out for). The food is almost usually good and the teaching is awesome. And to the person who says you have to kiss up to the people and you cant do sports if you don't have the money shes wrong.

Advanced Diploma Course Work: High School History Department - excellent; Mr. Thompson is a Civil War expert and an engaging instructor. Foreign Language - (Spanish) very good; Mrs. Elgin is a new teacher and extremely enthusiastic. Math - Beefed up and improved; test scores reflect this. English - challenging; Mrs. Jones requires college grade work. Correct writing skills are highly stressed. Science - acceptable; needs more hands on experience. Too much book work and not enough lab work.

This a school you need to check out if you are planning a move into the area. Elkmont is a bedroom community for Decatur and Huntsville with access to I-65. Property values are affordable and are a bargain for the quality of homes. A medium size high school that is part of a K-12 campus. For multi-child families, it is wonderful, since all your children will attend the same school. Strong basic academics and competitive sports programs. The principal, Mickey Glass, is young and has brought in creative, quality staff. A great Spanish teacher which is a rarity in Northern Alabama. Come and visit a conservative community that hasn't abandoned the values of God, Family and America.

My four children attended Elkmont High School for three years. We moved to the area from Huntsville and were uncertain of attending a K-12 school. My children range from K-12th grade so they all attended the same school. The Elkmont teachers and counselors were very supportive. The counselor worked with my son to make sure he meet all the high school graduation requirements in the new district. She also worked with my daughter during a very rough time. I am thankful for the support of the staff. The kids have a great oppportunity to be involved in sports. The community is very supportive of youth baseball and basketball and football. After a job transfer, we had to move. We miss the small town community.

As a parent of a child that graduated in 2002, I can only say that Elkmont is one of the best schools in Alabama. From kindergarten through high school, the teachers are caring and sincere. The kids have a variety of sports from which to play and other extracurricular activities. The town is small and the people are very friendly. It's a great place to raise a family and I would recommend it very highly. We are not originally from Elkmont, but Elkmont is my official home town. I don't want to live anywhere else.

We are very disappointed. I feel like the children are unsupervised. We are so unhappy that we are leaving the public school system. Next year we are homeschooling.

As a current student of Elkmont, I would definently say pick elkmont! I've been to 4 different schools and I've never loved school like I do now. Many schools put a big emphasis on sports but academics is always first at Elkmont. The teachers are very friendly and work with you no matter what! Elkmont is the best school I've ever been to.. i actually enjoy school now!

Elkmont is a great school! I would recommend Elkmont to any student, even those with special needs. The teachers love the kids. Many stay after for tutoring to help catch students back up if they are behind. The also stay after with HS students to remediate for the AHSGE. What more could you ask for? Although this is his first year as the principal, Mr. Glass makes a world of difference in the overall environment of the school. He is courteous to all and treats everyone with respect. He disciplines when it is needed and rewards when appropriate. The teachers and students seem to actually like being there. Thank God for schools that are run like Elkmont!

I have a child that goes to school at EHS. It is a good school except the only thing I have a problem with is if you have no money your child has no future in sports. If you don't kiss butt there your child will not be excepted into sports. It don't matter how good your child is. They have a excuse of your child is under weight, your child is over weight, they always have an excuse.
