Great school! My children love this school. The front office has a sweet staff that are very helpful. Teachers are great at communicating with me. It's easy to pick up and drop off my kids. They have a beautiful library. This school seems very safe/secure.

Our daughter attended this school through 3rd grade. With the exception of one teacher, the teachers were fantastic! As testing really stresses children, they taught excellent strategies that prepared our daughter to maintain a relaxed attitude, allowing her to excel during testing. We were blessed to start our child out in Elrod Elementary. Any future schools we attend have some very impressive shoes to fill.

My son has attended Elrod since Kinder and is now in the 5th grade. The teachers are excellent and they create a learning evironment that is very inviting to parents. This is why parent involvement is so high at this school. I would recommend it to any parent with grade school children!

My children attended Elrod for a few years. The teachers were great, faculty and staff friendly and approachable; both principals during our time very involved. We were sorry to leave.

I student taught at this school for my last semester of college. It is a wonderful school with great parent involvement. Most of the teachers are experienced and highly effective. We had a huge turnout for any school functions, such as assemblies, PTA meetings, and academic night. I would gladly send my children to this school--it is a large school but it does not feel that way when inside.
