Favoritism is really bad at upper.The Principal has a very large EGO,and miss using her power frequently. The quality of teacher's is really bad. If you are seeking a school where your child will be cared for and taught with the utmost,qualified teachers, this is not it. Very poor community! The Board of Education,and the Superintendent are mostly concern with money. They lose excellent teachers every year. that speaks for itself.

This is the WORST school I've ever been in contact with! If it was possible to give negative stars for the principal I would have!! The teachers are lazy and not very intelligent. They pick and choose which students they want to succeed and the rest are left behind. It is almost a battle to get help for your child, even when they are diagnosed with a learning disability, they do not help the child just leave him/her behind to fend for themselves. It is impossible to get a meeting with the principal and the receptionist is the rudest person on the planet. Of course I believe the root of all the issues goes back to the superintendent another worthless person who only cares about drawing a paycheck and could careless about his students and their safety and education. If you have a choice stay away from this school.

My daughter has attended school in Eldon since Kindergarten. She is receiving and excellent education. Teachers and staff are helpful and well trained. I am impressed with the access my daughter has to technology in her classroom. Her skills far exceed my own. We love this school.

This school has been a great place for my children to learn and grow. Teachers are working with my children to address their specific needs and indvidual abilities. I love the new approach to reading and the focus on technology. Can't wait to see where this school is going. I wouldn't take my children anywhere else. We love this school.

If I could move I would, this school has no leadership in its principal. I would not recommend this school district to anyone.

My daughter is a 4th grader at the Upper Elem. She looks forward to going to school every day. Hallways are orderly, teachers and staff friendly, great new things happening. Teachers are staying current and emints technology is on its way.
