Great start to the school year.I have nothing but great things to say about Elsanor school.The teachers and staff seem to really care about each child.And for them to be getting the best education they can.My only concern is,they as with all the schools,seem to have a lot going on the first of the year.For those of us with more than one child.It cost so much money to enroll [middle school],buy uniforms and supplies.It leaves the parents with very little extra money for field trips,picture day and fundraisers.Which as any parent knows,is hard to explain to children.And leaves the parents feeling guilty.

This school is a small school. All the teachersand students know my child. That's all well and good. However, schools are supposed to TEACH children. The lessons are disorganized at best and the parent/teacher communication is horrible. Elsanor school gets a big F from me.

I love Elsanor school. My child just finished her fist year there, and the entire staff were wonderful. My only complaint is the amount of activities offered to the children that have a fee included. It seemed a bit much to me, but I am new at being a parent of an Elementary School Child. Again, staff is wonderful, from principal, to office staff, to cafeteria workers, down to teachers. Very helpful.

Both my children attend Elsanor. It has been the best experance ever for my oldest. She has really came out of her shell and her grades have sky rocketed since attending Elsanor. The teachers are great. Just after we n=moved to this area and it had only been a couple of months we went to open house. Everyone knew my daughter it made me feel so great that every person ( meaning staff) took time to get to know every child. I give Elsanor a grade of a+++++
