This is my sons second year at Elorf. He really enjoys attending and I enjoy interacting with the staff. The curriculum is good and the student teacher ratio is good as well.
My son has been attending Elolf for 4 years & my daughter started this year. I love the teachers my children have had and the rest of the staff has been very helpful. The education my son has received is very good & helped him grow into a good student. There are behavioral issues at all schools & Elolf deals with their share well. I have never had any concern about the well being of my children while they were there. There is also lots of opportunity for parental involvement & volunteering. Taking the volunteer class anually is a pain, but it's over in less than 30 minutes & it's purpose is to keep our children safe. Overall, I have been very pleased with this school.
I have three children attending this school ages 6, 8, and 10. I have had no complaints for the past year they have attended and I will be getting more involved this year through various activities. I hope to meet more parents as I get involved with these school activities with my children.
I think that the school offers alot of ways for parents to be involved in the school. The only thing is that you have to first complete a parent volunteer class before you can attend any school functions or even go to your childs classroom. Basically what the parent class is for, is a criminal background check. The school says that people need to know who is around their children. Which makes good sense its just a headache trying to find time to attend the class with the work schedule and all. So in the meantime, you miss out until you get time to go to the classes. Other than that, in response to another parents comment, I think the children walking to and from school are very respectful, and you'll also find that alot of parents walk with their children.
I have a bad experience in Elolf School...No communication,,,,, mistakes,,,,,,;(
Very impersonal. Parent involvement is not encouraged. when the last bell for the day rings many of the students are out of control...they walk in the middle of the road and won't move for car and they will even stop walking and look at you as if to dare you, they fight, etc.. there were many calls to the school about this situation for plenty of parents and nothing was done about it. The situation actually got worse. Thankfully we moved.
I think the staff does not pay attention to security on that school. fight problems at the time for kids to go home. Just one teacher watching. Even, when I told the principal nothing was done to fix the situation. No recess time for the kids or field trips That's an essential part of cultural education. They are kids, not college students. Mrs. Arnelle very professional but I don't think she enforce the rules of discipline 100%.
My daughter only attended this school for about three months, but from what we experienced, it was a great school.
Our children attended Elolf a few years ago. There are a lot of behavior problems, but the teachers and principal were incredibly dedicated to giving a good education to all the children - regardless of their circumstances. We have since moved to an area where there are fewer behavior problems, but we have not seen the same love of children that we felt at Elolf.
We've had only good experiences with this school. Our son is in kindergarten and he loves it. He has also been doing very well.
I have found that teachers push and stress the children far too much on the basis of a single exam. I think that we send the children a bad message. Educators need to concentrate on the child as a whole, not merely by one single exam. I think that teachers feel that the overall performance may affect their peer view of their roles as an educator.
