My children went to Elder Grove. The K-8 staff is phenomenal! They are a veteran teaching staff and know what they are doing! My children were well prepared for high school thanks to hard work from their teachers. Elder Grove gave them a well rounded education.

Elder Grove is a wonderful school, with very caring and personable teachers and staff. My two boys love it there and we were all very sad to leave when we moved. The school has been around for over 100 years and has that country family feel to it.

My son has been to a lot of elementary schools because of his disorder, and out of all of those schools, Elder Grove has been the best. They have been so helpful and want me to stay involved with everything that we have to go through with him. I would recommend to anyone this school for anyone who is in the Billings area.
