One of the best schools around. Yes, they love their sports, but all athletes are held accountable to academics no matter which sport they play. Most of the time when people write reviews it is because they have a complaint, therefore submitting negative reviews. The school is a good school. Lots of good teachers, coaches, and students. Send your kids there without hesitation!

I would agree that there is a huge emphasis on sports, but what small/country school is not. What is concerning is the lack of interest in the students and education. I attended and graduated from Elmwood with honors. I was in the band, I played sports, and I was liked by all. Even with all that said, I would still advise all parents to send there children elsewhere. The teachers, principal, dean, and office staff, all play favorites. People who should be leading by example and giving all students an equal opportunity, label students and treat them accordingly. If your child gets labeled as a good student, then they will get more attention from an educational standpoint. If your child gets labeled as a bad student/trouble-maker (whether or not it is accurate), they will be singled out in class, and will be disciplined unfairly for every slip up. Please choose another school for your children. I have seen too many average students fall through the cracks, and too many students skate through with the "right last name" or the needed athletic ability.

Not impressed with the academics department, there is entirely too much emphasis on sports when the focus should be on education.

Academics are below standard. Too much extracurricular stuff and too little emphasis on schooling. Parents are rarely involved.
