My granddaughter is very happy with Elkton Elementary. She likes the small class size and the way her teacher and all the teachers treat the children.


Posted February 26, 2009

This school has excellent interested teachers and a principal who is loved by all. Class sizes are small and teacher do whatever it takes to help the students become successful learners. Elkton's teachers put in longer days that most of the other teachers in this county.
