Elko County School District Reviews

My experience at Elko high school was very fun. It made my schooling years go very fast! The teachers are very nice. They truely care about there students. Even though the kids can be awful and really disrespect. Teachers bit there toung down and still pursuit to want to teach students. All teachers are truly fair. They love to make sure it’s all fair. And that’s a big deal for me. Being a honest, and fair teacher means everything for me. I have never seen teachers being so fair to students that have disrespected them. They aren’t treated any differently and I believe that’s a great quality in a teacher. I would love some things to be changed such as sports. Sports are seriously taking over im so many ways. Teachers tend to change a whole lesson plan just because half or more then half of the class is gone due to sports. Sports kids really are the most rude kids and the most disrespectful students. I think some sports should be eliminated at Elko county school district.

Having attended a school so small I should not have expected a lot. the opportunities for advanced courses is low. The school revolves around sports and creates a social hierarchy among students that is obvious to everyone including teachers. This being said, there are values learned by each student that could never be taught in any other environment.
What I have always liked about our school district is that most people are pretty familiar with another and you aren't forgotten. It's nice that the school's support each other and are close together. When you compete for those same schools for so many years, you get pretty acquainted. The only thing I would hope to see changed is how certain schools are favorited and others are not. The district should focus and making every classroom worth being in, in every school.
