This school is great considering the difficulties they face daily as a title one school. I love their music teacher. He stays connected with his students. I was also impressed with the new orchestra program. Go Elder!

They are a Title One school who's teachers are committed to the students education. They have overcome many obstacles...and plan continued success in quality education.

I think the principal has no control over the students. The regular ed teacher(not all) need to have more compassion for special education and be able to help these children better.The school on one hand does have some wonderful teachers and assistant principals. If it wasn't for them my child and I would be in trouble. I am parent who is very involved with my children and there school and felt sometimes the communications with certain teachers was like talking to a wall.

Maybe the person writing the first review should go study English grammar!!! If the person is going to complain about it, then he or she should exemplify the standards of writing and grammar that is demanded from the school personnel.

This school has been a terrible disappointment. The teachers and staff lack the important English and grammar skills to communicate properly with the students. Slang gargon is introduced and accepted by the everyone in the school system. From the principal to the janitors, poor English skills is obvious. The first impression is made by an unorganized staff with a lack of concern for parents or students. The school also uses books that are just unacceptable for today's school children. All the books available are either falling apart or have pages missing. The excuses for such books is the lack of money available for the school system, but the local paper proudly listed very high salaries of the BOE employee and the high school coach. It has been my experience here that the county is completely sports orientated. I prefer for my children to acquire academic knowledge, rather than enjoy a ballgame!
