The school is too big. More emphasis on nice facilities than on the needs of kids.

My Children haven't been at this school very long,I still do need to give it time, but so far of what I have seen, I don't care for it, first they don't worry to much about the security of the school, they do lock the doors, but don't really care of comes in, they don't check ID's or hold Id cards until you get back, they dont enforce you to sign in, they will let anyone pick up your child does not even matter if they are on the list or not. I am pretty sure they dont know every person who comes in especially if there is 800 or more kids that go to this school. They focus alot on discipline than praising the kids, I watch them walk around the playground in single file, just because they didnt get there work done, not because they got in trouble. I agree there needs to be discipline but not because they are having trouble getting there work done, there are to many kids in each class, I feel teachers are not giving enough time for each child, there is about 25-26 kids per classroom way too many. They need to make some changes as for what I have seen.

I love this school. My kids have soared in this school. Much better than lawton public school. I would recommend it to everyone. The prinicpal is awesome and interacts with the kids as well as parents. My daughter grew and expanded her skills in reading which was awesome. My son was taken into Title I Math and received tutoring there. They help you reach your family and educational goals!!

I love the elementary school at Elgin. As a Military family, we move a lot. The teachers, staff, and community welcomed us. My son had ADD and the school staff immediately got him started in PT/OT/speech to help him catch up. We will miss this school!

I think Elgin is a very good school becasue it has so many things to offer each child. It not only has sports but extra activities the young men and women can choose to do along with a great acadimic program. The school as well as the city is a fast growing community.

Mr. Garland has assembled and developed some of the most vibrant educational programs I have come across during all my moves working with the military. Staff is accessible and extremely helpful. My son has been there from first to third grade. His teachers were Ms. Greenup, Ms. Webb, and Ms. Derringe, respecfully. They all nutured my son during a tremendous transition from a first grade in Germany where he spoke only German to the bright and successful English speaking third grader he is today. Hats off to a caring, but still challenging Elgin elementary school. Jay Bohnet

My son is in going into the 6th grade and we have had no problems with the school, he did not like one of his teachers in 5th grade, but that was about it(who hasn't at one time or another) He made good grades. It was a big jump from 4th grade to 5th grade or perhaps I just wasn't ready for him to be so responsible???

My son was in the 5th grade last year and we hated everyday of it!! He is now in the 6th grade and we still hate it. The middle school is awful!! If you are an outsider or if your child has any (ADD, ADHD, seizers, behind in reading or math) issues he/she will be treated awfully! Hopefully we will be transfering again soon. I do have to say although the middle school is awful the elementary school is great. I have to agree with everyone else on that one!! That principal and staff are wonderful and truly care about the children and their education! Wonderful special education program there.
