Elkhorn High School is an amazing school. It is full of incredible teachers, and administration. All of the staff care about their students and their needs. They make sure that every student is getting an equal chance in everything. The staff makes sure that everyone is exceeding their needs and their full potential. The only thing that I didn’t like at Elkhorn High School were the students. Which isn’t the school, teachers, or administrators fault, but the students were rude and disrespectful. I had experienced a lot of bullying throughout the four years that I attended Elkhorn High School, but I am the type of person to stand up for myself and deal with it on my own instead of going to the administration. Other than that, it is an AMAZING school!

The Elkhorn Public Schools (EPS) district has a small-town feel. The teachers are genuinely interested in the students’ learning and well-being. Facilities are top notch with technological advancements and are safe. The school environment promotes academic merit and community service to assist in leading students in a positive direction. It is a very competitive environment academically and with athletic programs. The high schools are held in high regard in the state and are recognized for the quality and award-level teachers and students that work and attend there. My positive experience with Elkhorn Public Schools has helped to form who I am today. This is rooted in the support and standards that this district has set, maintains, and continuously improves upon to build for future success of the overall district’s mission and program. EPS needs to continue to strive to accommodate the population growth that is attracted to this area and design for safe travel around the schools.
I loved my time at EHS. I never had a bad teacher and was always equipped with the best tools to set me up for my future success. Unfortunately, Elkhorn does not have much diversity, with most of the school being of white ethnicity. There was a plethora of clubs to choose from and be apart of. I believe everyone can find a group they will thrive in. Personally, I wasn’t part of any of the athletics during my school years, but our football team always does amazing. We’ve made it to state many times! Other athletics do very well too, girls basketball being one of them.
