I go to school at Elmwood Middle School. The princaples don't help at all they just point out all of your flaws and things you have done wrong! The school is dirty! It is very hard to fit in unless you are "popular" because of all the clicks! If you want to find a middle school in rogers go to Oakdale Middle School

'My child is currently enrolled in Elmwood... she constantly complains of their lack of feelings for the students... my daughter has also informed me that in the Ladys Locker Room they have NO sinks provided for the students... they dont even provide disenfecting wipes to kill the germs after lifting weights or playing basketball or rollerskating. Their lack of attention needed to be given to the students is not given.

Elmwood needs to get with the times and if they are going to educate students the administration should consider educating themselves first. A child transferred there from New York and was subjected to pre-judgements and harrassment by the administration because of previous residents. When one considers New York, Often people, classify everyone as from NY City, which, after 911 proved itself to be one of the strongest cities in all of the US. So even that theory is debunk. NY state has one of the highest academic standards and produces leaders that travel all over the world improving the standards of life. A child is not dependent on enviroment to be a worthy social contributer, but rather on the parents for good upbringing. This child had excellent upbringing, in an educated upper middle class family. Elmwood shamefully failed due to their ignorance and prejudice. Fair education is non biased.

We have one son in Elmwood right now. Our son is a 4.0 grade student and participates in every athletic activity. We have been very pleased with the school. I think its fair to say we have seen and witnessed a lot inside and outside of school. We are very please that any time our son is out of school we are notified. Of course as his parents we always know why he is not in school. However, with todays times - its nice to receive a voice mail letting us know - so we could ask questions if needed.

This school is fine for any child that doesn't need special assistance. The special ED in this school is a daycare. they teach them nothing. If you're after a good place to put your phsycially or mentally challenged kids try Rogers Sophmore Campus.

Elmwood Jr. High in my opinion is the best school in the district. The principal and the vice principals at Elmwood care a great deal about the students and try and help them not only in their studies, but also on the day to day needs. The teachers and support staff are#1 !

Despite the enthusiasm we had after Elmwood's open house last year, we have been very dissatisfied with what Elwood offers our student. Many of the teachers seem not to be interested in teaching to all the students. Discipline is nonexistant and/or misplaced. The school is greatly overcrowded (I seriously doubt they have enrolled only the number that is listed). When my student has been absent because of illness, always sent back with an excuse, and done the makeup work on time, the school system still sends out harassing letters. We are considering alternative education for the future and recommend that other parents/caregivers take a very close look before they enroll their students in this school.
