Amazing involved teachers. Active, involved principal. Friendly helpful secretaries. Excellent academic programs. Pool with swimming lessons. Children are well taken care of and taught a wide range of things including real world issues such as recycling. Constantly advising parents of students progress and areas in need of improvement. The best possible elementary school that my children could ever attend! I would recommend this school to ANYONE!

Elk Center is a wonderful school! The teachers are great and work very hard to make sure that the students are learning what they need to learn. Elk Center offers swimming, art, music, and gym classes and the students perform in plays and participate in many other activities. Parents are always welcomed at the school. The principal, assistant principal, and teachers are wonderful! My kids love Elk Center and I'm very pleased with the school!

This school has many great opportunites for children, however, due to the size and number of students many of the basics are missed. There doesn't appear to be any effective discipline in the school. The children who misbehave are the ones who gain attention from the staff. Teachers go unchecked and the children do not learn all that they should.
