I highly recommend Elmhurst Elementary School. Lots of opportunity for parent involvement and the staff are great. Everyone is very friendly and every teacher we've had was always very available for communication. I'm not sure what problems people refer to with open enrollment, I didn't notice much of a change.
Elmhurst has been through many changes due to redistricting, however the teachers and administrators are excellent and my children continue to have great experiences there. Parents remain very involved and the principal is an advocate for all her children.
