Despite the lack of funding in the district and parental involvement in this neighborhood, Elkin Lewis has continued to thrive, offering a full roster of classes to elementary students including art, science, music, computers and gym. I know that the conditions aren't perfect but I am very satisfied with the degree of commitment the teachers and staff have to the students at this school. Kudos!

I wouldn't say the school is great but the staff is working hard to turn the school around. The students are under achieving and have a general lack of motivation. There are some gems in the school but there is not a lot of parental support and concern. It oftentimes feels like babysitting.
