My son has spent two years at this School so far and we love it. The teachers and staff care so much and give their all for the students. I'm so grateful for all their hard work and proud to call my son an Elmhurst Eagle.

Elmhurst Elementary's principla Mr. Carey, is wonderful with the interaction with the children. He talks to them and encourages them to be better for themselves. My daughter came into this school after winter break. She was nervous, and so was I, but he made her feel welcome and safe. Thank you Mr. Carey!

I have had 2 students come through this school. I have been more than satisfied with my experiences with this school. The teachers love to teach and love the students. This makes learning a great experiences for the children as well as the parents.

As a homeschool mom, building relationships with the local elementary school is important to me. The principal and staff have been a pleasure to work with. My twin K's love attending partime, participating in Music, PE, and Library. I hope to continue part-time enrollment next school year.
