The high ratings for this school are out of date. If your child is liked by teachers or related to anyone on the staff then you should have no problem. The principal is weak and is more concerned about being liked among her peers than for the welfare of This seems to be exclusive to the middle school. The high school is less abrasive towards students but the academics are still low. All locations highly discourage parental involvement. Field trips and school events are closed off to parents and this district does not have a PTA and is not welcoming to the idea of one.

The high ratings for this school are out of date. If your child is liked by teachers or related to anyone on the staff then you should have no problem. But if your child requires a little extra effort the your are out of luck. The principal is weak and is more concerned about being liked among her peers than for the welfare of children. Teachers mention that if there are any questions feel free to ask, but then when you do ask questions they get defensive & accuse you of being negative toward teachers. The teachers are very acceptive of mediocracy, in fact that is what is taught. Academics are not priority. Students are bullied by other students and teachers. the elementary school is excellent.

The positive reviews for this school are mostly out of date. Be aware, Elgin Middle School is okay as long as the teachers like your kid. If yours happens to be one of the unlucky ones (like mine) the teachers will pick on your kid relentlessly. I didn't believe it either until I saw it with my own eyes. Don't count on any help from the administration, they're not interested. The elementary is good, the middle school is not.

This school is a very hands on school! The incentives (field trips, special lunches, etc.)that they offer to the kids really shows them that their efforts and hard work pay off. The teachers/counselors/principle/staff take their jobs very personal - and it shows with their interaction and relationships with every student. Top Quality Education - Top Quality Staff - Top Quality School!

We purposely moved to Elgin so that our children could attend Elgin Public Schools. Elgin provided our daughters with the knowledge and academic credentials to help them obtain college scholarships and meet with success in their careers. Imagine being provided the opportunity to travel to New York and Europe through your school? Imagine being surrounded by multicultural opportunities like learning the Kiowa or Comanche language? Imagine traveling to school via horse, tractor, Jeep, or airplane? What a fabulous place to receive an education. Elgin Schools prepares their students for our global economy and for the opportunity to be SUCCESS stories! Elgin Schools rock!

They put the children first. Everything they do is motivated to make each child progress scholastically and developmentally. The administration is hands on. They know the students. The students are not just a number to them and they follow them even after they leave the middle school.

When we PCS'D (moved here) we decided to relocate away from Ft. Sill where my husband is stationed. My (Kimberly's) father is a retired School District Employee of 34 yrs and my mother also works for the school district and I have seen lots of different school in my life. I personally went to a private school for a few years when I was younger along with multiple elementaries. Over the years of our child having to go from one school to another due to his father's career, we chose Elgin schools for it has great programs for military children transitioning from one school to another along with other great programs and the staff overall seems to care for their students in a way I have never seen before. Thank You for having such great programs and staff! V/R Mrs. Volz

I love Elgin Middle School because Sammy Jackson, the principal, is great. He has a good spirit when it comes to the children. My daughter attended Elgin Middle for 5-7th grades. The 5-6th grade teachers were great as well. I believe good teachers are a reflection, many times, of good leadership.

My children will be 3rd generation Elgin graduates. I've seen the school and community grow and am proud to endorse Elgin and all of its accomplishments.

This is a great chool. The curriculum is great and the classes are wonderful. The teachers will stay after school or will come before school if you need tutoring. I have been a student here for quite a while, and I have no complaints. There are many programs to be a part of. We are growing, but despite that, the teachers know majority of the students by name. There is a program here called Owl Pals who are essentially helpers to the counselor and the school. We welcome new students, help the teachers, and many other great things around campus. The athletics and musical programs are excellent. This is DEFINITLY a school to look into.

This school is the best school you can put your child in throughout all of OK. Espically those stationed at Fort Sill, its a mere 15 minutes away. Elgin is developing with many new houses being built, with a mcdonalds, subway, and sonic. Its a small town. No big city at all, with a great school. I love it here, being a student at the middle school and hate to say bc im military i have to move this summer bt i will have great meomeries of this place. The school offers many extra ciriculars and sports. In March 2010 a sensory room is going to be created for kids with special needs. Many options are availiable to students. Being a military brat, im glad we moved to this school! I hope you make the right choice and choose this school !
