Elkins school has been nothing but trouble. So thankful to be leaving this district! I would never leave my children with these people.

Posted May 8, 2014

This school is terrible the my daughter transferred from a school in Texas and was doing great and was excited to go to school everyday. But since we moved here, she is miserable and extremely intimidated by her teacher and other staff and students. The staff is extremely rude and seem to only care about getting money and invading the students families privacy. They sent notes home that are out of line and rudely worded. Also the staff seems more interested in trying to dig up the latest gossip on the parents. If a child has problems and is struggling with something, instead of spending a few extra minutes to help, the child is just cast to the side. Also the school lunches are absolutely horrific my daughter could not even eat the food and would come home starving and she has also been bullied by older students inches from teachers and staff who do nothing. We are now moving out of this school district. Please think very hard about finding a different school district for your child, there are many great schools in north west Arkansas, unfortunately this isn't one of them.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
