Elon Elementary is an excellent school. Caring administration, teachers, staff and parents all contribute to a positive and advanced learning environment. Parents are welcome in the school, there are interesting afterschool activites, and a PTO that raises the money to keep an art teacher on staff. Very pleased to have my children be a part of this school.
My grandson started kindergarten at Elon Elementary with a hyperactivity type of learning disorder. It has taken most ofthe year to get him on a suitable medication and he is only now 'getting' it. He will most likely need to repeat kindergarten, since he is (finally!) understanding the concepts, and the other children are ready to continue on to first. However, I have been constantly amazed at the dedication that his teacher and her aide and the counselor has shown. They did not want us to pull him out, even though it was a great struggle dailey with him, until they retested him and the doctor changed and adjusted and adjusted his medication. My hat is off to them. I have shed many greatful tears fo their help in giving us back a happy, confident little boy!
My child entered Elon Elementary in the second half of the 4th grade. He has experienced the best of private schools and the worst of the Guilford County Public School System. By far Elon Elementary comes close to that of a private school. The teachers and parents at Elon work extremely hard with the children in helping them to succeed. My child exceeded my expectations in Reading in 2006-2007 while at Elon.
