Elvehjem is a wonderful school. Teachers blend up-to-date teaching techniques with old-school chalk and blackboard, and really care about their kids. The parent community, volunteers and PTO are a real strength. Elvehjem has one of the biggest school libraries in the district and reading is suitably stressed, not to mention having a gorgeous school garden and strong art/music teachers. Having had kids in this school for ten years, I can honestly say I'd send them there all over again if I could.

My daughter is attending 4K here. Very nice school, lovely playgrounds and nice grounded kids. Only rated it as average because I feel that the teachers could use more resources but this is not uncommon in Madison schools.

Elvehjem Elementary is not only growing, but is gaining more knowledge with the help of their principal and the staff. I'm proud to have my child being at this school.

This school has a very focused agenda between the students, teachers and on-site administrators. Every rule is clear and highly enforced, lending itself to a feeling of a very safe and learning conducive environment. My children take a lot of pride in this school. It possesses some diversity. The art and music could perhaps be more than once a week, seeing that they have been huge inspirations for my kids.
