We moved to the area about 5 years ago from downstate. I can only tell you that I am thrilled with Elk Rapids Schools. The education my children receive is best I have experienced at all levels from elementary school to high school. The teachers and principals are great. I researched schools before moving and I so happy I decided on Elk Rapids for my family.

I had been going to Elk Rapids school district my entire life. Ever since I can remember it has been full of drugs and the main staff only want to help the sport teams. They only care about students if they are on a sports team, such as football or basketball, and could careless about those in the drama department or choir. The send all students they don't like to their alternative high school. They don't care about the students, only their ratings.

This school changed my life. The teachers and staff were the most compassionate, encouraging people I have met. They shaped my standards for education and made me a better student; I know when to ask for a challenge and push myself, largely in part because of my teachers and mentors. Mrs. Reisig is likely one of the best teachers in the state of Michigan, if not the United States. I'm not usually a fan of hyperbole, but this school deserves it. I was sad when Mr. Gallagher retired, but the standard of excellence continues to be high.

I feel that the Elk Rapids High School must have paid someone to get the 10 rating. My husband and I feel it is a drug-invested, politically poluted mess that we moved our children away from. Our son came home from baseball practice and told us the coach gave the team the most interactive porn site. He was in 9th grade. That was after telling us that he was one of twelve that did not yet smoke pot. That was the straw that broke the camels back. We moved our kids to the Traverse City schools and they have thrived every since.

Fabulous school. I moved to Elk Rapids from a nice suburb down state and was blown away by the caliber of education I received at ER schools. Although they only offer a few AP and honors classes, the staff will bend over backwards to accommodate a student that is looking for a more rigorous education. Steve Gallagher is debatably the best principal in the state. I am now a student at the University of Michigan and have been doing better than many of my schoolmates that went to private Detroit area schools such as Detroit Country Day, Cranbrook, Brother Rice, etc. I could not be happier with the education I received from Elk Rapids. Not to mention the friendly people and nurturing environment. If you are considering a move to the area, consider the quality education one more reason to move to the beautiful
