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.
