We couldn't be happier. This is our third year at Elmhurst and we love the principal, teachers, and staff.

This is a wonderful school!! The teachers and office staff are amazing. After a very rough first half of the year at another school I placed my daughter at Elmhurst and we love it!

All I have to say is Area Board 9 for your child/ student advocacy and get your kid out of here pronto.

I was surprised to read the review which said the school does not offer counseling and tutors, because my child has been offered both. This is our second year at Elmhurst and we are very happy. The principal, teacher and staff have all been very responsive to our needs. We feel grateful to have our child at such a great school!

The best school for my kid. The Teachers and staff are great. Parent-teacher involvement was beyond measure. My kid excelled here.

Haven't been very impressed with the schools ability to help children. They don't have after school programs, they don't offer councling or tutors. For the amount of fund raisers they have, you'd think some of it would go towards the students education. I believe that leadership begins from the top. Maybe it's time for a new principal.

This is one of the best school around. My daughter finished Kindergarten last year. Mrs. Potts is excellent. Music program is great. I am very impressed with the leadership and the patience that the teachers have in listening to the kids and helping them to be very comfortable to achieve bigger goals.

My son has gone to two other schools before recently making the switch to Elmhurst. He has thrived in the past few months in ways I've never seen before. His teacher was attentive, and sensitive to him, yet pushed him to learn more in 3-4 months than he had learned in years. The principal seems to run a tight ship and I have been nothing but impressed with the school.
