Elkhorn Public Schools Reviews

I love Elkhorn High School. The people and teachers are genuine people. The school does a good job of balancing the arts and athletics, which they exceed well in both. I also admire the school's allowance of the students to be individuals and explore their own paths and interests. I think the elementary schools should not give out so much homework to the students so that the students have more time to play and explore the world around them. Also Elkhorn Public Schools does not give the students days off that other schools across the nation and workplaces do, for example Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Overall Elkhorn Pubic Schools are very elite and produce successful students who are ready to take the next step into the real world.
Review Elkhorn Public Schools
I loved going to school at Elkhorn High School. I would never trade my high school years for anything in the world. There was never a teacher that treated my unfairly. I got along with all of my teachers really well. Everyone there is really nice and we all get along. A typical day there starts off with me getting there ten minutes before the bell rings and me heading to my regular classes and talking with my friends quickly before the class starts. The teachers try to be entertaining and relate to us. Going through the halls is annoying but its annoying in every high school. I also take a Japanese class and there we have a different exchange student every year. The exchange students are always kind and funny. There are dozens of students in each club. This school also takes its music very seriously. They compete with other schools in competitions and always have fun. Elkhorn High school is a great school with great classes, teachers, and students. I am going to miss it next year.
The district has given me many opportunities to grow from K-12th grade. Academically, the schools of the district progress quickly and I know I will be ready for college. There is not much diversity. Parents get very involved and resources are easily accessible. The Administration finally got rid of NESA testing and now offers a school day for students to take the ACT. There are many opportunities to get involved in clubs, support different sports, and make lasting connections with students and staff.
